Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Deportivo Alaves and Elche go head to head at Estadio Mendizorrotza on day 6 of the new La Liga campaign. Alaves did well to beat Athletic Club 1-0 in the Basque derby before the international, but it has to be noted that defender Duarte was sent off in the dying minutes of the match. As a result, the 24-year-old is out of contention for Sunday’s clash. Elche, on the other hand, have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet in the Spanish top flight.
The newcomers are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Sunday’s showdown, meaning that a low-scoring affair is on the horizon. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals. In their last meeting in a competitive game the two sides played out a goalless draw.
