Newly promoted Elche face a tough prospect as they take on unbeaten Real Madrid in La Liga for the first time in 24 years.
The last time these two met was in the 1988/89 season and Los Blancos did the double over the side.
It doesn’t look like being a much more different outcome this time around either, with Madrid dropping just two points from five matches so far, when they drew 2-2 with another newly promoted side Villarreal.
The Spanish giants will be without world record signing Gareth Bale, who picked up a thigh injury before the weekend’s game with Getafe, but in Cristiano Ronaldo they have a forward in spectacular form once again this term.
Elche returned to the top tier in Spain for the first time since 1989 when Fran Escriba’s side won the Segunda division, but as yet have failed to pick up three points this campaign.
The club are also yet to keep a clean-sheet, which could be worrying when they are pitted against a side who have netted 10 in their last two matches – five of which coming courtesy of Ronaldo.
Along with Bale, Xabi Alonso, Fabio Coentrao and Marcelo are also ruled out with injuries for the away side.
