Odds: 19/10 odds taken 18:06 GMT May 10th

This is a massive game from near the foot of La Liga on Tuesday night as survival is at stake.

Elche are second from bottom, but they would move a point ahead of 16th-placed Alaves with a victory.

The flip side of that of course, so that the visitors could put a little distance between themselves and the drop zone with an away win. It is certainly one that they won’t want to lose.

Elche Preview – Can Elche dig out a win?

It has been back to back league defeats for Elche, who badly need to arrest that form as they are in relegation trouble.

In their last six fixtures, Elche are W1 D1 L4 which leaves them a point from safety with three games to play.

A positive for them is that they have produced a little bit of recent home form.

Elche were undefeated in six home fixtures before losing to leaders Atletico Madrid in their most recent one.

In the match outright for La Liga football betting, the win for Elche is at 19/10* (odds recorded 18:06 GMT May 10th).

That means they kick off as underdogs.

The overall home record of Elche this season is W4 D8 L5. Within that, they are averaging under a goal per game.

So we expect this to be a tight battle in a low-scoring fixture on Tuesday.

Under 1.5 goals may well come into play in this one and that is a quote of 13/8 for football betting* (odds recorded 18:06 GMT May 10th).

Each of their last five league fixtures have gone under 2.5 goals.

Earlier this season Elche did claim an excellent 2-0 away win at Alaves. They badly need to complete that season double.

Our betting prediction:
Elche to win by a 1 goal margin

Bet at William Hill

(odds recorded 18:06 GMT May 10th)


All four of Elche’s home wins in this campaign have been by a margin of one goal only.

So if the home win is taking your fancy as a betting option, then it may be worth looking at that narrowest of margins.

Elche are the third-lowest scores in the division at the moment. Only three teams have worse defensive records as well.

They are going to be fighting for their La Liga lives on Tuesday night.

That should be incentive enough.


Alaves Preview – Can Alaves avoid defeat?

Slaves arrive in midweek action with some decent form behind them.

It has been one defeat only for Alaves in their last six league fixtures.

But they did have a slip up in their last road game, suffering a 3-0 loss at Eibar.

Eibar for reference are currently bottom of the table, one point behind Elche.

Surprisingly they have lost their two away games played already this season against others currently in the bottom three.

Their overall away record is W2 D5 L10 for the season.

So it’s been a big old struggle for Alaves during the campaign away from home.

In the match outright for La Liga betting, the win for Alaves is at 8/5* (odds recorded 18:06 GMT May 10th).

But their longer away form needs some further consideration.

It is a twelve match streak away from home that Alaves are on without having picked up a victory.

So this is no easy game for them.

Alaves kicked off in midweek just two points above the drop zone and that means they can still be accused by all of the four teams beneath them.

They also have the second-worst defensive record in La Liga as it stands.

Interestingly from a betting perspective, Alaves have conceded 71% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures.

So that suggests that they really struggle for second-half performances.

This looks like being such a high-pressure fixture and the road win doesn’t immediately have much appeal.


Elche vs Alaves Betting Advice

We think that a home win has more legs as a football betting option than an away win.

Home advantage for a team who have lost one of their last seven league home fixtures could be huge.

The win for Elche is our 19/10 football betting tip* (odds recorded 18:06 GMT May 10th).


Key Facts – Elche vs Alaves Betting Tip

  • Elche have lost only one of their last seven home games
  • Elche beat Alaves earlier this season
  • Alaves are without a win in 12 road games


We don’t see them getting the victory by anything more than a one-goal margin, however.

So for some extended odds, the Elche 1 Goal Winning Margin betting option is 3/1* (odds recorded 18:06 GMT May 10th).

It’s a huge relegation fight and one moment could be all that it takes to settle this.
