Real Madrid vs Elche: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch
Real Madrid will host Elche in a La Liga encounter on Wednesday at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
Los Blancos head into this fixture on the back of winning the Fifa Club World Cup after beating Saudi Pro League club Al-Hilal 5-3 in the final. The focus now shifts to La Liga where they find themselves 11 points behind leaders Barcelona. They have been inconsistent in the league after the World Cup break with three wins, one draw, and two losses.
Meanwhile, Elche claimed a surprise victory over Villarreal in their last league outing which was their first in this campaign.
They have just nine points from 20 matches and are at the bottom of the table. They have scored the least (15) and have conceded the most (40) which further highlights their poor run of form. However, Elche boss Pablo Machín has won three of his six matches against Real Madrid in La Liga and will hope to get something out of the match before leaving the Bernabeu.
