Tip Reasoning

  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in six of Elche’s last seven games and in their last five home starts.
  • Under 2.5 goals have also been netted in three of Bilbao’s last four matches and in the visitors’ last five away trips.
  • Throughout the campaign, less than three goals have been netted 22/37 games for both teams.

Elche’s top flight stay to end on a low key note

Elche will stay in the top flight if they beat Bilbao on Saturday and Huesca fail to see off Valencia, but Fran Escriba’s men aren’t fancied to uphold their end of the bargain at odds-on.

Los Franjiverdes kept their survival hopes alive with a superb 1-3 success at Cadiz last weekend, though they had lost their previous three and have won just one of their last five starts at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero.

While their mid-table opponents have little to play for here, Bilbao are notoriously tough to break down and went ten matches unbeaten prior to successive defeats in the last fortnight.

Overall, under 2.5 goals looks the most attractive bet at around evens for what should be a dour contest. Less than three goals have been netted in Elche’s last five home games and in six of their last seven matches overall, with the same applying to Bilbao’s last five assignments on the road.

Bilbao’s motivation to get back into this game is questionable should they fall behind, but a draw probably rates the most likely outcome and as such, we’re tipping up a 1-1 score-line alongside our under 2.5 goals prediction.
