Elche CF manager Jorge Almiron has no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game with a fully healthy squad ready to go.
Team News: Cádiz
Cádiz boss Álvaro Cervera has a number of players out of action. Choco Lozano (Corona virus), Luismi Quezada (Ruptured knee ligament) and Álvaro Negredo (Leg Injury) won’t be making appearances.
Our assessment is that Cádiz and Elche CF could well end up finding themselves level here, with both teams capable of netting.
It’s looking like it could well end up as a draw. We therefore think that it’s going to be a very close game with a score draw at the end of the 90.
