Eibar, on the other hand, secured a point against Real Valladolid in their previous match. After today's result, both teams are on 21 points and sit in 18th and 17th places respectively after 24 matches.

The first half of the game started favourably for Elche, beginning with a goal from Dani Calvo in minute 33 to see out the first half 1-0. The second half ended with little further action at either end and goalless.

For Elche, Josan, Josema, Pere Milla, Miguel Cifuentes and Omenuke Mfulu came on for Sergi Enrich, Jose Angel, Pape Diop and Pedro Leon, while Eibar brought on Yoshinori Muto, Rafa Soares, Aleix Garcia and Takashi Inui to replace Sergi Enrich, Jose Angel, Pape Diop and Pedro Leon.
