Real Sociedad vs Elche: prediction for the La Liga fixture
On March 19, Real Sociedad will host Elche for the La Liga clash. What to expect from this battle? The answer is in our prediction.
Tough schedule eventually got the best of Real Sociedad. Team got eliminated from Copa del Rey by Barcelona and now the Basques are out of Europa League after a defeat to Roma. Now the Royal Club can only try to fight for a Top-4 position in La Liga, hoping to reach the Champions League.
Maybe now, when team is out of any other competition, Imanol Alguacil's men will be able to stop the four-game winless streak, moreover, team scored only one goal in that period. Team has 13 victories and four draws, delivering 45 points and a 4th position in the standings.
Sadiq, Merquelanz, Merino, Fernandez and Elustondo will miss the upcoming game.
Seems like nothing can save Elche from relegation to Segunda, but team will surely fight until the end. Club achieved some positive results in recent matches, but team lost all five latest away games against Basque County sides in La Liga. They failed to score in four of these matches.
Pablo Machin's men have the worst defensive record in the league with 49 goals conceded. Visitors drew to Valladolid (1:1) in the most recent match.
Boye, Chetauyah, Roco, Milla, Magallan, Cheikh and Alamo will miss the upcoming game.
Ставка Goals in both halves - yes
This bet played in three latest head-to-head matches
Ставка Correct score 3:1
Basques won all five latest head-to-head matches
Ставка Corners: total under 9,5

We are expecting a high-scoring game here - teams have nothing to lose now. Opponents are far from perfect no defense, so both teams will count on the offensive game.
Our prediction - total over 2,5 goals
In our opinion, hosts will get today's game under control. Home advantage should help them to get a victory.
Our second bet - Asian handicap (-1) on Real Sociedad
