Espanyol vs Elche: top free betting tips
Relegated sides of La Liga, Espanyol and Elche face off against each other in Round 16 on Saturday, 18 November. White and Blue have got the back of two successive league draws while Elche defeated Real Zaragoza before this game.
Match result prediction: Espanyol to win
Espanyol are deprived of a league victory in their last four rounds, losing two of them. On the other hand, Elche have found three victories and two draws in their previous five league outings. However, the Green Striped Ones have recorded only one win in their seven road fixtures in La Liga 2 this season. Meanwhile, Espanyol have won two of the last four league fixtures at Stage Front Stadium, concluding one draw. White and Blue have also defeated Elche in their last H2H meeting. In light of the current scenario, we predict Espanyol to have the upper hand against Elche on coming Saturday.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
All of the previous four H2Hs of these two clubs at Stage Front Stadium have ended with BTTS outcomes. Elche has found the back of the net in each of their previous four road fixtures, conceding goals in two matches. On the other hand, Espanyol have rattled the net in four of their previous five games at Stage Front Stadium. Defensively, the White and Blue have leaked goals in three matches during the aforestated period. Therefore, we can expect goals from both ends of the field in this fixture.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Espanyol
Elche have rattled the net only once in each of their three league fixtures on the road. On the other hand, Espanyol have notched more than one goal in four of their previous five matches at Stage Front Stadium. Defensively, White and Blue have conceded only three goals in their previous four home games. Considering these facts, we predict Espanyol to record a 2-1 lead at the end of the ninety minutes of this game.
