Real Madrid are in dominant form and will be looking to extend gap at the top
in La Liga as they travel to Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero to face basement boys Elche.

Ancelotti's side are cruising with confidence after reclaiming top spot in La Liga from their perennial rivals, Barcelona, with a convincing 3-1 win over the weekend. They have been super impressive so far this season, and will look to build on their El Clasico success.

Elche, on the other hand, are currently rooted to the bottom of La Liga table and have struggled for results in the Spanish top flight this season. The hosts held Valencia to a valiant 2-2 draw last Saturday, and will have to play out of their skins to get something similar here.
