Eibar and Elche will trade tackles at the Municipal de Ipurua on Wednesday, with three points at stake in La Liga.

The two sides have been among the poorer teams in the division and currently find themselves in the relegation spots.

Eibar are at the bottom of the table and are the only side yet to pick up a point, although they have played just one fixture, while Elche are two places above them with one point from three matches.

The hosts began their campaign with a goalless draw against Celta Vigo but followed this up with consecutive defeats to Villarreal and Athletic Bilbao.

Newly-promoted Elche had a rude awakening on their return to the top-flight, as they were on the receiving end of a 3-0 defeat by Real Sociedad on their own turf.

Eibar vs Elche Head-to-Head

Eibar and Elche have met on nine occasions in the past and they have an almost identical head-to-head record.

Elche hold the slight advantage with four victories and two draws, while Eibar picked up a victory on three occasions. Both sides have scored 10 goals apiece.

The most recent meeting between the two sides came in a La Liga fixture in February 2015 and Elche did enough to get a 1-0 victory away to a 10-man Eibar side.
