Real Madrid vs Elche
Spanish La Liga
Date: 23 January 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:15 UK / 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (Madrid).

Just three days after their clash in the last 16 round of Copa del Rey, Real Madrid and Elche are set to lock horns once again, this time in the 22nd round of La Liga.

Elche were very close to the sensational victory on Thursday evening. Marcelo got sent off in the 102nd minute and Elche got the lead one minute later.

However, substitutes Isco and Eden Hazard turned things around of Real Madrid with goals in the second half of extra-time to send Los Blancos to the quarterfinal of the competition.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men showed a great spirit to score two goals with ten men on the pitch on the occasion.

This win will certainly further boost up the team’s confidence ahead of the weekend’s clash against the same rivals.

The Italian manager will likely use a much stronger lineup this time around. It should include the team’s top scorer Karim Benzema.

Real Madrid are four points clear off second-placed Sevilla who slipped up in mid-week’s 1-1 draw to Valencia at Estadio de Mestalla.

Elche are fifth from bottom, sitting five points above the relegation area at the moment. They have been in great form lately, going unbeaten in three successive La Liga outings.

Francisco’s men saw off Espanyol and Villarreal in the last two games. They continued their fine defensive form in the cup tie against Real Madrid on Thursday as well.

Real Madrid vs Elche Head-to-head

  • Real Madrid won six and drew two of the last eight meetings with Elche.
  • Elche showed a phenomenal resistance against Los Blancos on Thursday evening in a narrow 1-2 defeat after extra-time in the last 16 round of Copa del Rey.
  • Both teams scored in each of the last four head to head encounters.

Real Madrid vs Elche Prediction

Elche have been playing very well of late, but mid-week’s Copa del Rey loss to ten-man Real Madrid certainly represented a huge blow for Francisco’s troops confidence-wise.

Real Madrid are the most lethal team in Spanish La Liga and they will know how to take advantage of momentum against the vulnerable opposition. The home win to nil is our standout betting option at the 1.72 odds.
