Elche vs Atletico Madrid: Prediction and Betting Tips

14:15, May 01 2021
Elche vs Atletico Madrid prediction for Saturday’s La Liga round 34 clash at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero in Elche. Relegation-threatened at 17th position in the La Liga table Elche host Atletico Madrid who first for the time being. Read along for our free prediction and betting tips.

Elche in desperate need of a win

Coming into this game Elche have collected five points in their last five matches and have one win in their last eight games. Coach Francisco Escriba knows his team is running out of time and although they are above Valladolid by one point, a loss against Atletico could see them slip to the 18th position.

Elche have four wins and four losses at home this season. They scored and won in the first half in three of that four wins scoring six goals and conceding two. Coach Escriba will hope his team can open the scoring early in the match and keep the result as they did against Levante in their last match when they won 1-0.

In the match against Levante, Elche had just 34% of ball possession, coach Escriba’s side defended very well allowing their opponents just one shot on goal. This was Elche’s first clean sheet in 10 games and they need another one badly on Saturday.

A must-win game for Atletico Madrid 

Atletico Madrid are on the verge of turning their season into a disastrous one. After leading the La Liga table almost all season, the Rojiblancos could lose that spot to Barcelona if the latter win their match on Thursday against Granada. Diego Simeone saw his team lose another match last Sunday to Athletic Bilbao and have no other option but to win their remaining games.

It was Atletico’s second defeat in five matches, a very bad run considering they have lost just four games all season. Simeone will hope his top goal scorer Luiz Suarez will be back in form. The Uruguayan hasn’t scored in five games. 

Atletico have not lost to Elche and have won two of their last three visits to Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero. Simeone’s team dropped eight points in their last five games and can’t afford to drop anymore. The key clash for them will be on May 8 as they visit the Camp Nou for what could be this season’s champion decider.

Key Stats

  • Elche have scored in five of their last six matches
  • Both teams have scored in Elche’s 62% of home matches
  • Both teams have scored in Atletico’s 50% of away matches
  • Two or three goals have been scored in Atletico’s 62% away matches

Elche vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

It’s a very crucial match for both these teams. Elche want the three points to avoid relegation and Atletico Madrid need the three points to keep their La Liga title hopes alive.

The bookies are expecting both teams not to score in this match as they are paying as low as 1.61. We think it’s a good secondary option to back that both teams will score but for our primary bet, we will back an Atletico win and two or more goals scored.
