Elche vs Mallorca where to watch?
Elche vs Mallorca Team News:
Due to an injury to key striker Lucas Boye, Elche will most likely be without him for the foreseeable future, forcing Francisco to look for alternatives among his offensive ranks. Guido Carillo was named to the starting lineup for the previous game and after scoring just his second goal of the season, he should retain his spot.
In the middle of the back four, Enzo Roco and Diego Gonzalez have been relative staples throughout the season, and they should continue to form a solid partnership.
Mallorca will be pleased to see the return of centre-back Franco Russo to the field after his suspension the last time out, and he should slot right back into the defensive line. Vedat Muriqi, who joined the club on a season-long loan from Lazio in January, will continue to lead the side after scoring his third goal for the club in the triumph against Atletico Madrid.
As a result of their convincing victory, Takefusa Kubo and Fer Nino will be battling for a place in the starting lineup, but Aguirre is unlikely to make many changes.
Elche vs Mallorca Probable Playing XI:
Elche possible starting lineup:
Badia; Palacios, Roco, Gonzalez, Mojica; Morente, Mascarell, Gumbau, Fidel; Carillo, Milla

The One-Liner Explainer:
With so much on the line, we anticipate a close and cagey contest, as both teams are keen to avoid a loss that would be detrimental to their careers. Ultimately, we believe a draw is the most probable result, with the visitors anticipated to at least collect a point after their confidence-boosting victory the last time out.
