Real Madrid has a golden chance to make it six wins in a row in the La Liga before 2020 comes to an end. The side will travel to the Martinez Valero Stadium on Wednesday to take on Elche with kickoff at 11:30 pm.
Los Blancos joined league leaders Atletico on 32 points following their previous impressive run. Elche currently sits 16th on the table having picked up 15 points from their previous 13 matches in La Liga.
