Elche defeat Eibar 1-0 on Saturday at Estadio Martínez Valero. Elche were hoping to get something from this game after losing their last game 3-1 to Celta Vigo.

Elche started the first half well, beginning with a goal from Dani Calvo, 33 minutes in, to take a 1-0 lead into half time. Both teams struggled to produce anything meaningful in the second half, leaving the final score at 1-0.

For Elche Josan, Josema, Pere Milla, Miguel Cifuentes and Omenuke Mfulu came on for Emiliano Rigoni, Guido Carrillo, Johan Mojica, Antonio Barragan and Lucas Boye, while Eibar brought on Yoshinori Muto, Rafa Soares, Aleix Garcia and Takashi Inui to replace Sergi Enrich, Jose Angel, Pape Diop and Pedro Leon.
