Elche vs Villarreal Predictions

  • There have been three or more goals in four of Elche’s most recent five home fixtures
  • Nine of Villarreal’s last 11 matches have included at least three goals
  • Villarreal are unbeaten in their last five La Liga games

Villarreal to continue good form

Villarreal ‘s recent form has propelled them up the La Liga table and they now lie just outside the European qualification places having won four of their last five league games, scoring a hatful of goals in the process.

Unai Emery’s side have netted at least two goals in seven of their most recent eight fixtures in all competitions, a run that includes a 5-0 demolition of Levante and 5-2 hammering of Alaves.

Nine of their last 11 outings have seen three or more goals scored, and that highlights their defensive issues, with Villarreal failing to keep a clean sheet in five matches on the road.

Elche heading the right way

It looks like Elche might finally be turning their season around, with two wins in their last five La Liga games, and just one defeat in six, moving them clear of the relegation zone.

They are still conceding far too many though, keeping just one clean sheet in their last 12 league games and letting in at least two goals in seven of those matches.

A crumb of comfort for Francisco is their exploits at the other end; Elche have netted twice in three of their last four, with six of their last nine La Liga outings including at least three goals.

I expect there will be plenty of goals in this one, as both teams are strong in the final third, so predict there will be three or more goals in the match, selecting 2-1 to Villarreal as a correct score.
