Atletico Madrid vs Elche
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 19 December 2020

Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
Atletico Madrid ended their 26-game long unbeaten run in La Liga last time out. Their previous encounter was on the road and they lost to Real Madrid with a 2-0 scoreline. The host has stepped down to the second spot on the table and will aim to regain their top spot in the upcoming match.
Elche continues their winless run in the league to the sixth game in their schedule. The away team has recorded four draws in that winless streak. They will visit on the back of a 0-1 loss at home to the likes of Granada in the last league clash in their schedule.

Atletico Madrid vs Elche Prediction
Their h2h history suggests that the home team is ahead of the visitor in the upcoming clash. Besides, the away team come in as the promoted side this season. Atletico Madrid has been one of the best teams in La Liga for recent years in the records.
The host enjoys the ground advantage, and Simeone’s boys are likely to make full use of it in the middle, on the Saturday clash. We can expect a couple of goals in the game, as they will try to bounce back from the clean sheet loss to the reigning champions last time out.
Since the promoted side doesn’t boast of a high-end defense in the campaign, Atletico players will probably create more chances in the fixture. So, the tip for over 1.5 goals in full-time and a home win with Atletico Madrid holding a -1 handicap will probably be the ideal choices in the encounter.
