Sevilla hosts Elche in round 24 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Friday, February 11th at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán (Sevilla)
Sevilla failed to win again in the last round. The Red-Whites tied against Osasuna on a foreign pitch (0-0). That draw was the third in a row for the Andalusians. However, it is Julen Lopetegui’s men who are still the most likely opponents for Real Madrid in the fight for 1st place. Now they are on the 2nd line in the standings with 47 points in their assets. The gap to the Whites is six points. Sevilla is one of the top teams in LaLiga in terms of points scored at home (27 points in 11 games). All results look like this: eight victories and three draws with a goal difference of 24-10. It is noteworthy that the Andalusians scored at least one goal against their opponents in each home match.

Elche is in perfect order even after a short pause. A week ago, the Green-striped ones were stronger than Alaves at home (3-1). In general, they have not lost in five consecutive matches (three victories and two draws). More recently, the Levantines were in the relegation zone. But now they are in 14th position and certainly feel quite comfortable with 26 points scored. The gap from the three underdogs is eight points. Francisco Rodriguez’s men didn’t lose in two away rounds in a row. But in general, the team has mediocre away statistics: two victories, three draws, and seven defeats with a goal difference of 13-20. For comparison, only 11 goals were conceded at the home arena.
In the first part of the season, the head-to-head match at Elche’s stadium ended in a draw with a score of 1-1. I would like to note that the previous six away matches of the Green-striped ones ended with an exchange of goals scored. Yes, Sevilla is a team of a fairly high level. Actually, the 2nd line in the standings of the Spanish championship speaks for itself. But three consecutive draws do not correspond to the status of a contender for the champion’s title. The Red-Whites must win the upcoming game. And they have good chances, given how well they are performing at home this season). However, I expect fierce resistance from the visitors. Still, they are in good shape now. Therefore, we are unlikely to see a lot of goals scored.
