Match Preview & Team News
Elche had a great opportunity to snatch a point from table leaders Atletico Madrid in the previous round, but failed to convert a late penalty shot. They are now sitting in 19th place with 30 points total, just one under the safe zone so surely remaining four games are going to have a massive importance. Besides Sociedad, Elche will also play against Alaves, Cadiz and Bilbao – pretty solid schedule overall. Team earned just one victory in the last nine divisional appearances though. Can that trend change in San Sebastian? Read on our La Liga betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Real Sociedad’s run in UEFA Europa League was stopped in the playoffs by Manchester United. Overall, this squad is having a decent season, even spending some time as La Liga table leaders back in 2020. Recent domestic form has been shaky, with results extremely hard to predict. They were surprisingly defeated by Huesca last weekend 0-1, while previously defeating Celta Vigo and Eibar. The most valuable player within the roster is Mikel Oyarzabal with ten goals and seven assists in La Liga. As for the visitors, Elche got defeated in eight out of the last nine away days, which is the main reason for this difficult situation. Only Johan Mojica is injured within their ranks and unable to make an appearance on Friday.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Five out of the last seven head to head encounters between these two rivals have ended with low number of goals and BTTS NO option. This is going to be our selection for this market at 3/4 price.
Despite the urgency they have for points, we don’t think Elche will be able to take anything home from San Sebastian. Home win HT-FT at 13/10 is a good value bet in our opinion and we will back it with mid-size stake.
