Real Madrid have been able to resurrect their season over the past month, and they could have an excellent chance of going to the top of the league in this game against Elche.
La Liga Preview
It has been an excellent run of form by Real Madrid since the last international break, as they have been able to win their last four matches. The pick of those wins came against Atletico Madrid, as the reigning champions pulled level on points at the top of the league. However, the advantage certainly remains with the current leaders, as Atletico have two games in hand over their local rivals. However, the message will be clear from Zinedine Zidane, and that is to continue getting the wins that will put the pressure on the side at the top of the league. Real’s experience in title races could be pivotal as we edge towards the second half of the season, but they can’t afford to slip up and hand the advantage back to their cross-city rivals.
Elche will also come into this game in a battle of their own, as they are down at the bottom of La Liga. They are currently outside the relegation places on goal difference, but it will be a slight concern that they aren’t scoring enough goals this term. No team have scored fewer goals than Elche in the league so far this season, as they have hit the back of the net on just ten occasions in the 12 games that they have played. Their recent form also hasn’t been good, as they have lost their last two, and haven’t won in six league outings. It looks difficult to see that run of form changing against their title-chasing opponents in this fixture.
Elche vs Real Madrid Head To Head
Elche will not be taking much confidence from their recent record against Real Madrid, as they have lost all four previous meetings. Real’s dominance in this fixture means that they will be the standout selection. Meanwhile, there is an average of 3.5 goals per game when these two sides meet.
Elche vs Real Madrid Prediction
It would seem difficult to give Elche much of a chance in this fixture, as Real have the dominant recent record and a better record in the head-to-head. The preference is for the reigning champions to get the three points.
