Aleix Coch Lucena (born 18 October 1991) is a Spanish footballer who plays for CE L'Hospitalet as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Coch was born in Tarragona, Catalonia. In June 2010, while still a youth player at Gimnàstic de Tarragona, he was called to train with the first team to cover for injured players.[1] On 19 June he made his debut with the main squad, replacing fellow youth graduate Fran Vélez in the 82nd minute of a 0–1 away defeat against UD Las Palmas for the Segunda División championship.[2]

On 10 July 2012, after spending three full seasons with the farm team, Coch was promoted to Nàstic's main roster, alongside Sergio López, Ñoño, Eugeni and his cousin Joel Coch.[3] During the campaign he appeared in 13 matches (nine starts, 781 minutes of action), as the club missed out on promotion play-off qualification.

On 20 October 2013 Coch scored his first goal for Gimnàstic, netting the first through a free kick in a 2–1 home win over Valencia CF Mestalla;[4] he was later linked to that opponent in January of the following year,[5] but the deal collapsed.[6]

In July 2014, Coch joined neighbouring CE L'Hospitalet.[7]
