Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Elche and Eibar go head to head at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero in the La Liga round 24. Los Franjiverdes do not seem to be at their sharpest at the moment, with the team eyeing their first league win since October 23, 2020. Elche are three points behind the safe zone ahead of the visit of Eibar, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Saturday’s showdown. Both Josan and Mojica suffered injuries in the 3-1 loss to Celta, and the duo is unlikely to feature against Eibar.
Fidel and Nino remain in the recovery room. Los Armeros, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their six-game winless run in La Liga. Since the visitors are likely to go for a win in the relegation six-pointer as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Correa and Rodrigues should be the only absentees in the away team.
