Elche vs Villarreal
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero (Elche).
Elche still has a chance to make it out of the relegation zone this season. But winning the rest of the games will be easier said than done. The host has been winless in the last 14 clashes in the campaign, following a 1-0 loss on the road to Valencia last time out in the schedule.
Villarreal has been unbeaten for the past five matches in the league. They lost the Copa del Ray game last time out in their overall schedule. However, they will visit on the back of three consecutive draws in the La Liga fixtures, following a 1-1 draw at home with Real Sociedad.

Elche vs Villarreal Prediction
Elche has won none of their last seven home matches across all major contests. The host is on a double loss at home in their schedule, and this promises no ground advantage for the promoted team. Besides, the home team has been winless for the past 14 clashes in La Liga this season.
Villarreal is at the fifth spot on the table and has been moving within the top six spots in the league for quite some time this term. The away team has been unbeaten in their last three visits to this venue and is likely to carry on that trend in their overall schedule.
Facing a promoted team sitting in the relegation zone makes it easier for the visitor. Furthermore, the away team has kept a clean sheet for the past five outings in their schedule. Thus, the tip for an away win in full-time and Villarreal to keep a clean sheet in ninety minutes will probably be the ideal tips in the encounter.
