Elche heading the right way

Elche had a really tough start to the season, but they have picked up dramatically since the New Year, losing just once in six games in 2022.

New manager Francisco took charge at the back end of November and he has won seven of this 13 matches so far, including three from their last four on home soil.

Their only defeats at Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero have come at the hands of high-flying Real Madrid and Real Betis, while they have not lost to a team in the bottom half since a 1-0 reverse at Alaves in October.

Rayo Vallecano plummeting down the table

Rayo Vallecano had a stunning first half to the season, but it was largely an impregnable home record that had them flying high, and even that has taken a hit of late thanks to successive defeats.

On the road, they have been terrible all campaign, winning just once in 11 attempts and suffering eight losses, including three successive 2-0 reversals to Villarreal, Atletico Madrid and Celta Vigo.

They come into this one without a win in five La Liga games, failing to even score in four of those, and after spending a large portion of the season in the top six, Andoni Iraola’s side have sunk to 11th.

Elche are on a good run and I think they will win this one, selecting 2-0 as a correct score prediction as Rayo Vallecano have been struggling in the final third lately.
