Alaves vs Elche
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 18 October 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz).
Alaves is struggling to keep their defense in shape, and the six goals conceded in five appearances so far are a clear example of their shaky back-line.
Playing at home is their strongest suit and hosting on the back of a 1-0 win at home against Athletic Bilbao will improve the morale of the players.
Elche is above the host in the table, despite being a promoted team in the mix. They have shown a mixed form in the campaign by marking all probable outcomes in the form within three attempts.
They are unbeaten in the recent two fixtures, following a goalless draw at home with Huesca in the previous clash in the league schedule.
Alaves vs Elche Head-to-head (h2h)
- The visitor has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
- Their previous encounter resulted in a goalless draw.
- Both teams have not scored in the last six fixtures.
- Only one of their recent six matches has ended in a draw.
- The host has lost only one of their seven clashes at home.
- The visitor has failed to score in three of their last five visits.
Alaves vs Elche Prediction
Alves enjoys the ground advantage in the game and has lost only one of their recent three fixtures in the campaign schedule. Besides, the host is on the back of their first win in the league this term and will try to build on that form in the upcoming match.
Elche is on an unbeaten run in the past two fixtures, but their shaky defense is not likely to hold El Glorioso attacks in ninety minutes, especially with the newfound form. The host has lost only one of the last seven h2h clashes at home with the promoted side.
Based on these stats, the home win in full-time seems to be the ideal choice. However, the punters are better off with the tip for Alaves to win either half of the encounter in ninety minutes. At 1.44 odds, it assures more safety for the punters to yield decent returns.
Furthermore, the scoring average has been low for both teams in the campaign this season. But the match is likely to see some action in the middle. The tip for over 1.5 goals at 1.57 odds will probably suffice the requirement from the goals area.
