Atlético have won their last 10 games against Elche in La Liga, and will hope to pick up another three points at home to return to winning ways in the domestic league. They have been struggling for form and have picked up just one point from their last three La Liga matches, including losses to Cadiz and Mallorca.
Meanwhile, Elche are rock bottom of the table with just four points from 14 matches. They are yet to get a win and have lost the most points after scoring the first goal of the game in La Liga this season (12). Diego Simeone boasts a perfect record against them as he has won all eight of his games as Atletico boss, which further complicates matters for the Valencian club.
