Reason For Alaves vs Elche Predictions

  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in eight of Alaves’ last nine home matches.
  • Seven of Elche’s last eight league games have produced fewer than 2.5 goals.
  • The visitors have scored just one goal in their first three La Liga games, while Alaves have bagged just three goals in their first five fixtures.

With just four goals netted between these teams across eight La Liga outings so far, we could be in for a long afternoon this Sunday when the sides face off at Mendizorroza.

Alaves eked out enough points to narrowly escape the drop last season, but they earned themselves a reputation for being one of the dullest La Liga teams in the process.

That trend has continued so far this term with just three goals netted by Babazorros in five games, although Rodrigo Ely’s strike against Bilbao before the international break could turn out to be priceless as it secured Alaves their first win of the new campaign.

Nonetheless, four points from a possible 15 to date is essentially on a par with what Pablo Machin’s men were achieving in 2019/20 and it’s hard to expect anything other than a relegation scrap for the Basque outfit this time around.

They have a winnable fixture upcoming this Sunday, though, against an Elche side who have looked extremely limited since their promotion to the top flight. Jorge Almiron’s have managed to accrue four points from their matches, but their only goal so far came at Eibar on Matchday 2.

The styles and lack of quality possessed by these teams points to under 2.5 goals this weekend, which has featured in seven of Alaves’ last eight at Mendizorroza. Don’t be surprised, then, if this one turns into a 0-0 stinker.
