Elche vs Sevilla Prediction & Match Preview

Elche vs Sevilla
Spanish La Liga
Date: 24 May 2023, Wednesday
Kick-off at 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero (Elche).

Sevilla continue their congested schedule on Wednesday evening when they visit Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero to take on southern rivals Elche in Gameweek 36 of Spanish La Liga.

Neither team will have an imperative in this midweek tie whose outcome is thus very difficult to predict.

Interestingly, both outfits will enter the match on a high following their respective positive threads in recent weeks.

Elche seem to have started to play football only after they became mathematically relegated to Segunda Division.

They won two, drew one, and lost one of the previous four games in the league which is by far their best streak of results in the entire season.

Head coach Sebastian Beccacece can be particularly pleased with the display his men have shown on Saturday in a 1-1 stalemate against Getafe.

Elche looked dangerous in the final third and were generally the better team on the pitch throughout the 90 minutes of action four days ago at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

Sevilla, on the other side, shared spoils with their bitter city rivals Real Betis in a low-profile goalless draw on Sunday at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Jose Mendilibar is doing an amazing job with this Sevilla team as Los Rojiblancos have advanced to the UEFA Europa League final by beating Juventus 3-2 on aggregate in the semis.

Sevilla have lost just 1 of the previous 13 outings across competitions and they have climbed to the 9th place in La Liga table as a consequence.

Elche vs Sevilla Head-to-head

  • Sevilla will rely on tradition because they won 8, drew 4, and lost only 1 of the previous 13 clashes against Elche.
  • Los Rojiblancos celebrated a comprehensive 3-0 victory in the reverse game played in late-January this year at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
  • Only one of the last four head to head meetings between these rivals provided three or more goals.

Elche vs Sevilla Prediction

Mendilibar will most likely give rest to some of his main players after two very tough clashes against Juventus and Real Betis within the previous six days. Since Elche have won two in a row in front of their fans, we just can’t ignore the 4.20 odds offered for their victory on Wednesday evening.

Looking at the odds, the value is also with the Under 2.5 goals FT bet knowing that we saw three or more goals just once in the previous four head to head ties between these rivals.

Elche vs Sevilla Betting Tips

  • Elche to win @ 4.20 (16/5)
  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 2.00 (1/1) odd.
