Elche vs Villarreal Team News, Injuries, Form, and Possible Lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Saturday's La Liga meeting between Elche and Villarreal below.

Elche

What else needs to be said of Elche's season so far except that they are still waiting for their first win and we are getting into Febuary. In fact, the entire first half of the season is finished and Elche remains winless, with just six points from nineteen games. So, they are currently last in the standings and their chances of survival are very slim at the moment.

Meanwhile, Tete Morente, Domingos Quina, Alex Collado, and John Donald are out with injuries, while Pedro Bigas is suspended right now.

Elche Predicted Lineup:

Badia – Gonzalez, Roco, Verdu – Carmona, Mascarell, Gumbau, Blanco – Fidel, Boye, Milla

Villarreal

After winning four of their previous five games in La Liga, Villarreal suffered a somewhat surprising loss at home to Rayo Vallecano in the last round. Despite this unexpected slip, the Yellow Submarine remains in fifth place in the standings and just three points behind Atletico Madrid in fourth place, which would take them to Champions League next season.

When it comes to team news, Villarreal is currently only without injured Juan Foyth, although a few players left the club in January, like Geronimo Rulli, Arnaut Danjuma and Manu Morlanes.

Villarreal Predicted Lineup:

Jorgensen – Femenia, Albiol, P. Torres, A. Moreno – Parejo, Capoue, Baena – Chukwueze, G. Moreno, Pino

La Liga Standings

Player to Watch: Gerard Moreno

While Villarreal is having a good season in La Liga so far, their players' contributions seem to be distributed almost equally. That being said, one player stands out a bit and it is Gerard Moreno.

The Spanish striker wasn't always available this season as he struggled with injuries, but he is still the team's top goalscorer with six goals in his eleven La Liga appearances. So, Elche has to know that the biggest danger comes from Moreno in their duel against Villarreal.
