Elche Preview – Big ask for Elche at home against Madrid

There is only a one-point cushion that is keeping Elche out of La Liga’s drop zone at the moment.

This isn’t the kind of game that they need right now then as they look to pick up their first win since October 23rd.

That’s an eight-match winless streak of form that they are currently running on at the moment in the top-flight (D5 L3).

They have drawn three of their last four (L1) which has moved them on to a W1 D4 L2 home record for this campaign.

Home and away combined they have played six matches against teams currently in the top half of the table.

Elche have taken only the two points from that sequence of games.

Sticking the ball in the back of the net has been a problem for them this season.

Elche have tallied six goals from their seven home fixtures from this campaign and overall home and away are averaging under a goal per game.

Their tally of 12 league goals this season leaves them as the joint second-lowest scoring team in the top flight.

There is a quote of 9/1 for Elche to pull off the victory in this match* (odds recorded 2019 GMT Tuesday, 29th December).

Our betting prediction:
Real Madrid 2-0 correct score

Bet at William Hill

(odds recorded 2019 GMT Tuesday, 29th December)


There has been no clean sheet from them in any of their last five home games now.

They have conceded 67% of their home goals in the second half of fixtures this season.

On the flip side of that, they have scored two-thirds of their home goals in the first 45 minutes of fixtures.

It basically all points to them generally not having enough steam to get positive results.

As it stands there are only two teams with a worse home record than Elche this season in La Liga.


Real Madrid Preview – Madrid on the march

There has been no such problems with the form of Real Madrid who have won their last five league fixtures on the spin.

They have hit at least two goals in each of their last four wins and they are expected to be comfortable in this fixture.

Away from home this season Real Madrid have posted a W5 D2 L1 record and have won their last two on the road.

They are running as 1/4 odds-on favourites to pick up another three points in midweek* (odds recorded 2019 GMT Tuesday, 29th December).

That clearly doesn’t offer much value for football betting.

Los Blancos are averaging 1.75 goals per away fixture this season.

A Real Madrid 2-0 correct score option might be worth a look at 5/1* (odds recorded 2019 GMT Tuesday, 29th December).

Home and away combined this season Real Madrid have conceded under a goal per game on average.

They have earned a clean sheet in 38% of their road fixtures.
