Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero will host Saturday’s football game between Elche and Sevilla. Los Franjiverdes have been struggling on the travels of late, but they are undefeated in the previous two home games in the Spanish top flight. Even though Elche boss Fran Escriba should have a full squad to choose from, home win should not be considered as the hosts do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the visit of Sevilla.
Julen Lopetegui’s charges, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Barcelona. Los Sevillanos are determined to cement their spot in top four, and given Elche’s current form, they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Both Acuna and Ocampos remain in Sevilla’s recovery room, but they should be the only absentees in the away team.
