Elche – Atl Madrid free soccer betting tips
Elche faces leaders Atletico Madrid at the Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero in a game from the 34th round of the competition. We will preview it for you in these free soccer betting tips for today. Let’s get to work!
Atletico Madrid are desperate to win their first La Liga title since 2014. Los Colchoneros are currently leaders in the standings with 73 points, but just two points ahead of Real Madrid and Barcelona. This means that Atleti must be very profilic in the remaining five games in order to really finish on top.
The problem is that Diego Simeone’s team won just two of its last five matches in La Liga. In the previous round Atletico didn’t do well and lost their visit to Athletic in Bilbao. The centre-back Stefan Savic managed to score in the 77th minute, but the Basques scored a late winner after a strike from Inigo Martinez in the 86th minute. This was Atleti’s 4th loss for the season.
Cholo Simeone could do some changes in the line-up for this game. Players like Luis Suarez, Thomas Lemar and Joao Felix started from the bench against Athletic, but they could return in the starting eleven.
Elche are fighting for their place in the league. They are currently 17th in the standings with 30 points won which puts them just one point ahead of the 18th Real Valladolid. As you can see every point would be crucial for Elche in the race against relegation.
Elche won their last game in the league, though. Fran Escriba’s team hosted Levante and managed to achieve a crucial 1-0 win. The Argentine striker Lucas Boye scored the winning goal in the first half of the game.
