Elche vs Real Valladolid Prediction, Tips & Match Preview

Elche vs Real Valladolid
Spanish La Liga
Date: Wednesday, 21 April 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero (Elche).

It is a relegation six pointer when Elche welcome Real Valladolid for the Spanish La Liga clash on Wednesday.

The hosts are 19th in the league while the visitors are 18 with a point separating the two teams.

Despite an overall poor form (2 draws, 4 losses), Elche managed to pick some points from their recent home games and will be positive on Wednesday.

Their last 4 at this ground produced 2 wins and 2 draws and this looks remarkable since one of those wins came against Sevilla, while the couple of draws were earned at the expense of Europa League contenders Villarreal and Betis.

Valladolid have not won their last 4 games and come here after losing successive games. However, they cannot be underestimated after losing just 2 of their last 9 away games.

Elche vs Real Valladolid Head-to-head

  • There are draws in their last 9 head-to-head games with Elche winning twice.
  • At this ground, Elche are unbeaten in the latest three with 2 wins and 1 draw.
  • Their last 5 meetings saw both teams scoring.
  • Three of the last 4 saw over 2.5 goals.

Elche vs Real Valladolid Prediction

Both teams are even favourites and we do believe neither of these teams have the quality to go for full three points. Their recent h2h also suggest the same with a high percentage of stalemates in the mix.

Considering the nature of this fixture, like a cup final, we see goals at premium and therefore under 2.5 goals is our first recommendation.

Even though Elche are in good touch while playing at their own backyard, Valladolid have become the kind of party crashers in their travels this season.

For brave punters, full-time draw is recommended, but this comes with a risk for sky high 3.00 odd.

  • Under 2.5 goals @ 1.53 odd
