This problem in the hamstring area leaves Carrillo, at least, for two weeks in the dry dock. The franjiverde attacker will miss the next three matches that the people of Elche will play in six days against Osasuna, Valladolid and Levante. The objective of the medical team is to try to recover it for the May 1 game against Atlético de Madrid.
In the absence of the Argentine, Elche entrusted his talisman forward last season: Pere Milla. The Catalan footballer was decisive the previous campaign, despite the fact that, as in the current one, he was not a regular starter and in most matches he came out as a revulsive from the bench.
In the final minutes, Pere Milla scored the winning goal against Oviedo, on the last day of the regular league, which allowed the Illicitano team to qualify for the play-off after a tense waiting time for the Fuenlabrada case. ».
But the franjiverde forward was not satisfied with that and was the hero of the promotion at the Montilivi stadium with the goal in the 90th minute. A goal that has allowed him to enter the history of the Elche club and win the affection of the fans.
Now, the franjiverde attacker wants to take off his cape again and help Elche to achieve permanence in the First Division.
Pere Milla has played a total of 25 games this season, but in many of them he has been a substitute. However, when he appears in the starting eleven, on many occasions, he has had a leading role.
Score and the team scores
The Catalan footballer maintains his love affair with important goals. In this league they have three, but whenever the Elche team has scored, at least they have scored.
He made his debut as a scorer on the second day scoring 0-1 in Mendizorroza, which opened the way to victory (0-2).
With Escribá he was being a substitute. The Valencian coach bet from his arrival on the attacking duo Lucas Boyé-Guido Carrillo. But in the last three games Pere Milla has started and has responded with goals.
At the Alfonso Pérez Coliseum in Getafe it was the surprise in the starting eleven due to a last minute indisposition from Carrillo. It took him only 20 minutes to score. He scored the 0-1 with a live shot in the small area that, at least, served to tie (1-1).
The following day against Betis, Boyé was suspended by suspension, and Milla returned to fulfill in a difficult moment. The Andalusians had advanced on the scoreboard with a goal from Borja Iglesias, Elche was having a bad time and the Catalan striker came to the rescue once again scoring 1-1, which was the final result and allowed the Elche team to achieve a point important.
Pere Milla has been the author of the last two Franco-green goals. Last Friday in Huesca Elche’s goal was the Slovakian defender Vavro’s own goal.
Now, with Guido Carrillo’s injury, everything indicates that the Catalan attacker will be Guido Carrillo’s offensive partner in the next matches. His fight and dedication are beyond any doubt and if that work comes accompanied by goals the permanence will be closer. Its role as a talisman is proven. For this reason, Elche is entrusted, once again, to Pere Milla.
