Game info Espanyol x Elche


The RCDE stadium in Cornella de Llobregat in Barcelona will host this Sunday, October 23, the meeting between Espanyol and Elche. The match opens the schedule of duels of the day for the eleventh round of the Spanish Championship in its 2022/2023 season. The start is scheduled for 12:00 UTC.


How does the Spanish Championship 2022/2023 work?


LaLiga has 20 clubs. They play 38 rounds (home and away games) throughout the season. In the end, the one with the most points wins the title. The Spanish Championship grants six places in international competitions. The top four finishers are entitled to a place in the Champions League group stage. The fifth place goes to the Europa League, also directly to the group stadium. Whoever gets sixth place will be able to play in the European Conference League but will have to go through the qualifiers. The last three places will be sent to the Second Division.



Espanyol had, on Thursday, October 20, their streak of three games without defeat broken. After scoring with two draws and one victory, he was surpassed by Osasuna. Playing on the opponent's ground, it took 1 to 0. The score was even tight in the face of the much higher volume of play from the home team, who had control of the ball for 65% of the time, and created 17 opportunities for shooting, five of which were in the right direction.


The goal that determined the victory was scored by Budimir ten minutes into the final stage. The Catalonia club, satisfied with the equality, could not do much offensively, even after being behind on the scoreboard. During the match, he developed just five chances for submission. Three of them required the intervention of the archer Fernandez.


Having stopped at nine points (two wins, three draws, and five defeats), Espanyol started the dispute of the eleventh round of LaLiga occupying the sixteenth position of the leaderboard when considering the tiebreaker criteria. One point above Girona, eighteenth-placed, and the first club in the relegation zone. As a principal, the performance is slightly lower. It is the seventeenth place in the ranking of the homeowners of the Spanish Championship. Of the 15 points he played as column one, he won four (one win, one draw, and three defeats). He scored six goals and conceded ten.



The only team yet to have won a single victory in the 2022/2023 season of the Spanish Championship, Elche even indicated improvement by achieving two consecutive draws against Mallorca (1-1) at home, and Valencia (2-2), outside. However, on Wednesday, October 19, the giants Real Madrid had to live with their excellent technical limitations and even play as the home team was beaten 3-0.


The Merengues didn't even need to make a big splash to impose their favoritism. They led with a large advantage in the rate of shots on target (7 to 3). They had control of the ball for 62% of the time, created the same number of opportunities for submissions as Elche (ten), and had as an unbalance factor the quality at the time of submissions.


Valverde opened the score in the 11th minute of the first half. In the finals, Benzema, in the 30th minute, and Asensio, in the 44th minute, completed the service. In this way, Elche was stationed in the three points (three draws and seven defeats), marking a step in the twentieth – last – position in the league table of the Spanish Championship. As a visitor, he played for 15 points and won one (one draw and four defeats). He scored three goals and conceded 14.
