Elche vs Alaves: Prediction and Betting Tips
Elche still with a chance to stay in La Liga
Picking up just four points from their last five matches, Elche are showing relegation form at the wrong time. With just one win in their last ten La Liga games and three matches to be played in the season, coach Francisco Escriba’s team is running out of time but still have a chance to survive if they win their remaining games.
Elche’s last ten matches have seen few total goals due to the weakness of the La Liga side’s attack that has scored just 29 goals in 35 games and a marginally improved defense in their recent matches that saw them concede just one goal in three of their last four matches.
Alaves can’t afford to lose points
Like their opponents, Alaves are battling to avoid relegation. They are currently 16th with 32 points two points ahead of Elche. Hence the importance of the match for coach Javier Calleja’s team as a defeat here and they could find themselves in the relegation zone with two matches to spare.
Two wins and two draws in their last five matches seems encouraging for Alaves. Coach Calleja needs to find a way to break their away record spell, however, as his team haven’t won in 12 La Liga away games. The last of those defeats came against another bottom three team Eibar 0-3, conceding two goals after the interval ensuring the fact that Alaves have conceded 70% of their away goals after the interval.
- Four of the H2H matches ended in under 2.5 goals
- Both teams have not scored in the four H2H matches
- Elche have failed to score in two of their last five matches
- Alaves have failed to score in two of their last five matches
- Elche’s four of their last five home matches ended with under 2.5 goals
- Alaves’s three of the last five away matches ended in under 2.5 goals
Elche vs Alaves Prediction
It is clear from the statistics that this match is heading for a low-scoring outcome. Alaves will be happy with a point here and prevent their opponents to leapfrog them in the La Liga table with a win.
Elche have no other choice than to win, but given their recent scoring form, we might not see coach Escriba’s team finding the back of the net more than once or twice in this game.
We predict a low-scoring game.
