Real Madrid vs Elche: prediction for the La Liga fixture
This week, Real Madrid played the second match in Copa del Rey. After a success in the match against Alcoyano (3:1) The Blancos played an away game against their today opponent and in a dramatic fashion clinched a quarter-final spot.
The outcome of the game was decided in just 12 minutes of extra time - capital team was down to 10 men, then they conceded a goal, but managed to come back and edged a victory over the White-Greens, so Real have a chance for another trophy.
Galacticos also put up a successful performance in the Champions League group stage, finishing it at the top spot, they beat the champion of Italy by five points. After 21 rounds of La Liga Carlo Ancelotti's men have 15 victories and four draws, which brought 49 points, four more than their nearest competitor. In 2022 The Whites suffered a defeat to Getafe (0:1) and then recorded a victory over Valencia (4:1).
Asensio, Diaz and Carvajal are unavailable for the match.
Elche put up a confident performance at first stages of Spanish Cup, they beat Lejona, Unionistas and Almeria. After that they were unlucky in the extra time of the match against their today opponent, but Valencians were looking solid in this game.
After 21 rounds of La Liga Francisco's men have five victories and seven draws, which brought 22 points and a 15th spot in the standings. Team's weakest link is the offensive line, which scored only 21 goals so far.
Bigas and Casilla are unavailable to play so far.
This bet played in 2 out of 4 most recent matches of Elche
In each of three most recent head-to-head matches goals were scored in both halves
Madrid team won 4 out of 5 most recent head-to-head matches
In 3 out of 4 most recent head-to-head matches no penalties were given
In our opinion, before a short break Madrid team will try to extend their leadership in La Liga, a home match is a great opportunity to do that. Plus we don't think that visitors will be able to recover in time after a disappointing defeat in cup. We think that Carlo Ancelotti will be able to navigate the Blancos to another victory.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-2) on Real Madrid
We are not expecting a sensation in this match. The Whites should be able to record a confident victory over the Valencians.
Our second bet is on Real Madrid to win by three goals
