Elche loses to Celta Vigo, remains winless in Spanish league

MADRID (AP) — Modest Spanish club Elche has lost to Celta Vigo 1-0 at home in the Spanish league to remain the only team without a win after 16 league matches. The loss came after it opened the year by being eliminated in the Copa del Rey following a 1-0 defeat at third-division club Ceuta. It was the team’s third match since debuting new coach Pablo Machín. His first game was a 2-0 loss at Atlético Madrid before the end of the year. Elche has lost 12 of its first 16 league games. Celta ended an eight-game winless streak in the league.
