Sevilla – Elche Free Betting Tips
Sevilla FC (2nd, 47 pts) took another step back in its fight to win the second title in its history in the First Division (1945-46 champion) drawing 0-0 with Osasuna at El Sadar. Three consecutive draws chain the red and whites, who by winning this Friday would reduce their disadvantage with respect to Real Madrid to six points, at least provisionally.
A fort called Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán: Sevilla have only lost one of the 14 official matches played at their stadium this season (W9, D4, L1), and this despite only having the sixth best defensive record in LaLiga Santander ( LL) 2021-22. The red and white defense, which has kept a clean sheet in five of the 11 LL games played in the RSP, will try to annul an Elche team that has recorded just one win in its last ten league outings.
However, Elche visit Nervión after beating Alavés 3-1 at home and reaching 26 goals scored in the current championship, their highest figure in 23 games of a First Division campaign in the 21st century. That victory is part of a streak of five games without losing (W3, D2) that has lifted the Elche club to fourteenth position. Elche had not chained five days undefeated in the highest category since 1977.
The RSP, a cursed stadium for Elche: the franjiverdes, whose first visit to Sevilla dates back to the 1959-60 season, have never won a league game in the red and white fiefdom (W7, D15). In the current championship, Elche have won less than a fifth of their away games (W2, D3, L7), and the nine points added away from home represent only 34.61% of their total points.
Players to watch: Jesus Manuel “Tecatito” Corona signed an assist in his first game for Sevilla at home. Four of his last six goals for Porto opened the scoring in their respective matches. Keep an eye on Elche for the great moment of Lucas Boyé, who has scored or assisted in his last five games (H3, A3), including a goal and an assist against Real Madrid.
