Elche – Alaves Match Preview

  • Elche are showing genuine relegation form at the wrong time, with just one win across ten La Liga (LL) games (W1, D3, L6). However, ‘Los Ilicitanos’ could drastically boost their chances of safety if they can follow-up the reverse H2H win, and in turn improve upon their meagre 17.65% win rate as LL matchday outsiders.
  • Expect a tight game either way, as eight of Elche’s last nine LL games have produced under 2.5 total goals, with six witnessing exactly two. Low-scoring remains a particular theme at home, as five of Elche’s last six LL home games have produced under 2.5 total goals (W3, D2, L1). All four win/loss results came via a single-goal margin.
  • Deportivo Alavés hover just above the relegation zone, but they are in encouraging form, picking up 28.13% of their season points across their last six league games alone (W2, D3, L1). Two-thirds (four) of Alavés’ goals during this sequence were scored beyond the 75th minute, while four (W2, D2) of the games won/drawn saw them score first.
  • However, the visitors are now winless in 12 LL away games following that famous road win vs Real Madrid back in November (D4, L8). The last of those defeats (0-3) came against another bottom-three side (Eibar), with two unanswered goals conceded beyond HT, ensuring that 70.97% of Alavés’ SA away goals ‘against’ have come after the interval.
  • Players to watchLucas Boyé has been Elche’s last scorer with each of his six LL strikes, twice earning a 1-0 win. Conversely, Joselu has been Alavés’ first scorer with seven of his eight LL goals, and accounts for one of just two goals this calendar year which have served to give Alavés first blood in an away league match.
  • Hot stat: Each of Elche’s last five home league draws have seen them score or concede the opener inside the first 25 minutes of play.
