Villarreal v Elche Preview, Primera La Liga, Sunday 30th March 2014

Villarreal will be wanting to continue from last weeks away win to Getafe with another win over Elche who were also promoted along side them last season. Villarreal were challenging for a 4th place finish before their recent blip in form which would of been an incredible achievement considering this is their first year back in the Primera.

Elche will be fighting for their lives this Sunday and will be praying for a much needed win after their impressive display against 4th places Athletic Bilbao last weekend. Although the game ended in a goalless draw it was still a well earned and very welcomed point in aid of avoiding the drop. With only three points between them and the relegation battle below they will see this game as a must win in they wish to survive and live another season in this top league.

Villarreal v Elche Recent Form (Left to Right)

Villarreal: W L D L D

Elche: D L D L W

Both teams are suffering with form lately with them both sharing equal stats in the last 5 games. In the table however we can see it is Elche who are struggling the most with being only 3 points behind the relegation zone. Villarreal were once fighting for that Champions League spot but with their recent form taking a battering I see it is unlikely that position become realistic anytime soon.

Villarreal v Elche Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

This Primera League Sunday clash sees two of last years promotion sides battle it out once more. Elche are bidding for 3 points in hope to avoid the relegation drop below them where as Villarreal are hoping to continue from last weeks win to Getafe.

I can see this game being an incredible scrap for whats on offer after the ninety minutes with the more likely being Villarreal who look the stronger side. They were doing so well before their recent drop in form but are now hoping that blip is out of the way after last weeks much needed win. Its been a long month for Elche who’s last win came at home to Celta Vigo on the first of March and since then have only scored once in the two loses and two scoreless draws.

My predictions for this game see’s Villarreal win in both with the first with both clubs to score. The next I am going for is Ikechukwu Uche to score and his team to win which could prove good seeing as though the striker scores often.
