Atletico Madrid to Win to Nil

The guests have kept a clean sheet in 48% of their games, which is the highest in the league. That, along with the fact that we don’t expect Atletico to miss another opportunity awarded by another stumble of their main rivals in the title race, leads to our prediction of Atletico winning to nil. Furthermore, Atletico didn’t concede a goal in three of the last four wins over Elche.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Since we don’t expect Elche to score in this game, and Atletico rarely scores more than two goals (1.44 goals scored in away games, 1.82 in total), it’s logical to expect under 2.5 total goals in this match. Furthermore, Elche is not really that efficient at home – they average just one goal per game. And, six of the last eight Elche games in La Liga have gone under 2.5 total goals.

Luis Suarez to Score Anytime

After missing a few games due to injury, Luis Suarez returned in the previous round. However, he came off the bench and wasn’t able to prevent the loss to Athletic Bilbao. Our guess is that Atletico’s top goalscorer this season will start against Elche, which would make his chances of scoring much higher. After all, Suarez scored 19 goals in the league this season and two of them came against Elche in the first match between these teams.

Elche vs Atletico Madrid preview: A huge match for both teams

With both teams looking for a win that will mean a lot to them, we are bound to see a very entertaining match. So, let’s take a deeper look at these two teams and what to expect from them.

Elche

The streak of seven games without a win by Elche was finally broken in the last round against Levante. This win has put Elche in a bit better position since they are now at the same number of points as Valladolid, the first team outside of the relegation zone. Of course, Elche is still in a very dangerous situation, and their recent form is not a reason for optimism. On the more positive note, the team has a clean bill of health, with the exception of Guido Carrillo.

Atletico Madrid

After Granada surprised Barcelona at Camp Nou in their postponed match on Thursday, Atletico Madrid has received another lifeline and remains at the top with two points ahead of Real and Barca, and three points ahead of Sevilla. This probably surprised Los Colchoneros themselves since they’ve only won two of their last five games in the league, along with two losses and a draw. Renan Lodi is the only player in the team under question for the Elche game.
