MADRID (AP) — Elche’s winless run in the Spanish league has been extended to 17 matches after a 1-1 draw at Cádiz on Monday. Elche remains the only team without a league victory this season. It has only five points, 10 fewer than second-to-last Sevilla. It is Elche’s first draw after a streak of five losses in a row in the league. Cádiz moved to 18th place and is one point from safety.
