Villarreal vs Elche: prediction for the La Liga fixture
Current champion of the Europa League got off to a great start in the main European club tournament. Villarreal played the first match of the group stage at home against Atalanta (2:2). Hosts conceded a late goal seven minutes before the final whistle, but draw is still a good result.
Yellow Submarine got four draws in first four matches of La Liga, so now team is at 14th place with four points. On Sunday, Valencians played a draw with Mallorca on an away game (0:0).
Chukwueze is on team's injuried list.
After a miraculous escape in the previous season Elche are trying to put up as many points as possible at the start. Club strengthened the squad during the off-season, which surely helped them in first matches of Primera.
After five rounds White-Greens have a victory over Getafe (1:0) and three draws in their asset, which brought them six points and a 12th spot in the standings. On Saturday, Fran Escriba's men drew to Levante (1:1).
Bigas is on team's injuried list.

Elche had a decent start of the season, but today team is approaching a tough challenge. Villarreal can't record the first victory so far, so they desperately want to win. We think that hosts will be able to snatch a victory due to advantage on class and a support from home fans.

We are expecting a defensive performance from the visitors today, but they are unlikely to avoid a defeat. We think that we will see at least one goal, but there won't be a blowout. The outcome of the game will probably be decided by one or two goals, so we are offering a bet on total under.
Our second bet is on total under 2,5 goals
