Luis Suarez – With 19 goals and 2 assists in La Liga this season, Atletico really missed the Uruguayan during his injury. He will be back in the firing line and will look to steady the ship by getting Atleti back to winning ways. He has created 26 chances and attempted 35 shots on target as well.

Angel Correa – In Suarez’s absence, Correa has done well and has 7 goals and 8 assists in the league. He has 3 goals and 2 assists in his last 4 games for the club including a man of the match performance against Eibar where he bagged a brace and an assist. Correa has created 39 chances and succeeded in 42 dribbles.

Fidel Chaves – The veteran, Chaves, has been one of Elche’s better players this season with 5 goals and 3 assists so far. He has created 40 chances with 37 of them being key passes.

ELC vs ATL Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Oblak
Defenders – Gimenez, Trippier, Savic
Midfielders – Llorente, Piatti, Guti, Morente, Fidel
Forwards – Suarez (C), Correa (VC)

Likely Winner:

The ELC vs ATL Today Match Prediction will be a crucial one for both sides for different reasons. Atletico Madrid will be aware that they have been given a second chance by Granada and will look to get all 3 points against a poor Elche side. But the home team have a great chance to leave the relegation zone should they get even a point against the Los Rojiblancos. Atletico Madrid is the obvious favourites to win this game having won the most games in La Liga and having the tightest defence but Elche will go for broke.
