Elche vs Osasuna
Spain – La Liga
Date: Tuesday, 22 December 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero.
Los Rojillos are placed dead last in the table, and are currently active on the worst losing streak of all teams in the league. They have conceded goals in plenty all through this campaign, and they have been a total disaster on the road as well.
Meanwhile, the Green-Striped Ones have two games in hand, and they still are a formidable team in the mid-table. Moreover, they are just seven points away from a European spot as well.
They surely are going through a troubling spell too. But against Jagoba Arrasate’s men, they clearly are the favorites.
In fact, against the worst team in the league, Jorge Almiron’s men would give their absolute best on the pitch, since occasions like this are rare – where they have the upper hand.
For the reasons, expect Elche to deliver the better performance this Tuesday.
Elche vs Osasuna: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Five of the previous seven encounters had goals from both teams.
- Four of the preceding seven clashes had three or more goals.
- The latest meeting had ended in a 1-2 win on the road for Los Rojillos, almost two years back.
- Since 1997, the hosts have failed to find the back of the net just once at this venue.
Elche vs Osasuna: Prediction
The Green-Striped Ones lost 3-1 on the road the last match-day, against Atletico Madrid. In the meantime, Arrasate’s men lost 1-3 at home against Villarreal.
Going on, Almiron’s men were unbeaten in nine of their previous twelve overall games, and have lost just twice at home in the past six months. In fact, they have lost just four times all through 2020 at this venue.
On the other hand, their counterparts had lost six of their preceding eight games, and they had conceded a total of 12 goals from their former five fixtures.
And on the road, they have been winless in every single league match-up, barring their meeting against the recently-promoted Cadiz.
Likely, expect Elche to have the edge this Tuesday.
Going on, considering the weak defense on either side, chances are very high for goals to come in plenty at the Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero. A minimum of two goals is the least expectation this game week.
