Elche vs Atheltic Club: Predictions and Betting Tips

21:00, Aug 16 2021
Elche vs Athletic Club predictions for this La Liga battle on Monday at Manuel Martinez Valero Stadium. After several inconsistent seasons, Athletic want to return to the top 6 in Spain, and they will face a lowly Elche side whose main objective is to stay in La Liga. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

Elche

Elche must take advantage of this new season to establish themselves strongly, and avoid the problems of last season, when they managed to stay up, only by beating Athletic 2-0 on the last day of the season.

Elche were one of the worst-performing home teams last season, winning only five out of 19 games.

Elche’s only signings so far have been Pablo Bigas, Enzo Roco and Johan Mojica.

Athletic Club

Athletic begin a new season facing widespread dissatisfaction from their fans after a underwhelming few seasons where they have failed to demonstrate that they rank among the best teams in Spain. Last season’s two losses in Copa Del Rey finals to FC Barcelona and their historical rivals, Real Sociedad, have not helped matters.

Athletic’s economic challenges, and their peculiar policy of only signing players born in the north of Spain, specifically from the Basque Country and Navarre are not helping their results, and this is why there have (almost) never been other nationalities in their squad.

Key Stats: 

  • Two wins, two draws, and two defeats for Elche in their last six matches of pre-season
  • Elche have conceded at least one goal in their last six matches of pre-season
  • Three wins, two draws, and one defeat for Athletic in their last six matches of pre-season
  • Three consecutive matches conceding at least one goal for Athletic

Elche vs Athletic Club Predictions

The pre-season of each team has been enlightening; while Athletic have faced and beaten some big European teams such as Dortmund, Elche have not even been able to beat teams from the Spanish second division. Athletic are also superior in terms of their squad. Despite the home advantage for Elche, we think Athletic are favourites to take all three points from this game
