Real Madrid vs Elche - La Liga

We all know that these two sides met in the Copa del Rey on Thursday night and Real scraped to a 2-1 victory after extra-time, but you would expect this game will be much more comfortable.

And of course the Carlo Ancelotti’s side remain unbeaten on home soil in the league this season, racking up seven wins and three draws from their ten games, scoring an incredible 22 goals in the process.

So, three or more goals in the game is not a guarantee. They have had a hat-trick of 0-0 stalemates at the Bernabeu, while one of their wins was through a 1-0 score line, so chance is taken with two or more goals instead of three.

The Elche side struggling to compete against the best

Away side Elche have moved clear of the relegation zone after a recent run of two wins and a draw from their last three games, but they regularly struggle when up against La Liga’s top teams.

Definitely this season they have played six away fixtures against sides currently in the top half of the table, and they have lost all six.

And four of those matches have included at least two goals, with the other two by a 1-0 scoreline, showing they cannot make an impact when facing stronger sides.

The Benzema side Real Madrid should win this by a comfortable margin, but there might not be that many goals in the game
