Eibar to win

It is not just home support that should motivate Eibar in this game after a losing start to the 2023/24 campaign but the hosts also have a better form than Elche in recent outings (excluding pre-season friendlies). Eibar tested their strength against Numancia in a friendly after losing 4-0 away against Racing Santander, a game they won 1-3.
Under 2.5 goals
In our final Eibar vs Elche prediction, we don’t expect a lot of goals in this game. The last four meetings were in La Liga, all of which ended with under 2.5 goals. The other two encounters were in La Liga 2, one of which had fewer than 3 goals. Thus, in 6 meetings, 5 games had under 2.5 goals, so factoring in the fact that both teams are struggling, we predict a low-scoring duel on Saturday.
