Betfred betting tips

Player to Score (Anytime) – Karim Benzema

If Real Madrid are to emerge victorious from this potentially tricky fixture, the player most likely to grab the crucial goal is French striker Karim Benzema. Despite being 33, the ex-Lyon man has shown no signs of winding down into retirement this season, scoring 13 in 22 league appearances. Benzema is the focal point of Real’s attacks since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, and is enjoying a spell of red-hot form in front of goal.

Win Both Halves – Real Madrid

Despite being unbeaten in seven league matches, Real Madrid have drawn two in a row – including a last-gasp equaliser from Benzema against city rivals Atletico last time out. Real are likely to be pushed hard for a convincing victory against one of La Liga’s basement sides by manager Zinedine Zidane. Los Blancos have scored the first goal in four of their last five, while visitors Elche have conceded first in six of their last eight.

Draw No Bet – Elche CF

Last time these teams met, Elche sprung a surprise to snatch a point at home in a 1-1 draw. The away side’s situation is far more desperate now, with Elche needing to pick up some vital points in order to beat the drop. In their last fixture, they managed to beat Spanish giants Sevilla 2-1, and at 10/1 odds this pick represents great value for a small bet – with stakes returned in the event of a draw.

Real Madrid vs Elche CF: Preview of the crunch clash

Real Madrid

Benzema’s equaliser last week ensured that city rivals Atletico didn’t disappear out of sight at the summit of La Liga, but Real are in desperate need of three points at home to strugglers Elche this weekend. Los Blancos are now eight points behind Atleti and just two behind El Clasico rivals Barcelona. The home side are unbeaten in seven league games and picked up a crucial 1-0 first-leg victory over Atalanta in the Champions League, with the second leg to be played next week.

Eden Hazard could return in time for this game, while Dani Carvajal, Sergio Ramos and Mariano Diaz all still remain out.

Elche

Despite victory last time out against Sevilla, Elche are three league games without a clean sheet and their leaky defence has caused them serious problems this season as they seek to avoid relegation to the second tier. The draw against Los Blancos in December will give the visitors hope, however, that they can spring a surprise and put some distance between them and danger.

The visitors have no injury or suspension worries heading into Saturday’s fixture.
