Elche – Statistics & current form
The team from Elche experienced a rollercoaster ride of emotions in the last few days due to the chaos around competitor Fuenlabrada. Their last league game had to be canceled and was only made up with a three-week delay, a draw would have been enough for Fuenlabrada to reach the sixth place in the play-off. But in minutes 90 + 5, the aspirant of the promotion conceded the 1: 2 goal from a penalty and Elche was still able to cheer.
Tax debts ended the La Liga adventure
Elche, however, continues to dream of returning to the Spanish upper house, the team was most recently represented in the upper house in the 2014/15 season and had to cope with relegation despite being 13th in the table. The club failed to pay tax debts two years in a row and was forced to relegate. In 2017/18 even the third division was home to Elche, but the direct return to LaLiga2 was successful.
A balanced balance is sufficient for play-off participation
In an intense second division season with 42 games, every team went through ups and downs, but it is a little surprising that Elche never won three games in a row. In total, only three wins in a row were achieved. Nevertheless, the team of head coach Pacheta can dream of returning to the top division.
The long uncertainty surrounding play-off participation and recent performances (only three wins in the last eight games) do not speak for the home side. In the three-way market, a wager on Elche seems accordingly too risky.
The obvious choice for games in the Manuel Martinez Valero Stadium are bets on the under 2.5. Only four of the 21 home games ended with an over 2.5 – on Thursday between Elche and Saragossa odds of 1.55 are offered for the prediction of under 2.5.
The probable formation of Elche:
🔸 Badia – Juan Cruz, Josema, Calvo, Tekio – Sanchez, Rodriguez, Folch, Josan – Nino, Jonathas

Real Zaragoza – Statistics & Current Form
First division football was last seen at Real Saragossa in the 2012/13 season. After relegation, the club faced major financial problems. In 2014/15 and 2017/18 the play-offs were also reached, but the return was not successful. As is well known, however, all good things come in threes and the Fernandez team is now starting the next attempt.
Weak finish prevents direct ascent
The team should have saved the detour via the play-offs. The team finished second between matchday 28 and 36 and would have had a direct promotion. But the season’s finish was anything but satisfactory.
In the last eleven league games, the aspirant celebrated only three wins and had to accept surprising defeats against teams from the lower half of the table. In total, only ten points were collected in these eleven games. So it is now called detention.
Top striker Luis Suarez was ordered back
As if the bitter failure in the fight for the direct La Liga return wasn’t bitter enough, the task in the play-offs is made even more difficult by the departure of loaner Luis Suarez. The Colombian – not to be confused with the Barca striker – was on loan from Watford and was ordered back early by the Hornets. With 19 goals, the 22-year-old was the outstanding attacking player at Saragossa.
The second-best goalscorer only had five meager goals in the entire season. Due to the absence of Suarez, a prediction of under 2.5 between Elche and Saragossa is underpinned again. Even under 1.5 can be considered under certain circumstances.
The probable formation of Real Zaragoza:
🔸 Raton – Frances, Clemente, Zapater, Delmas – Torres, Buyla – Blanco, Kagawa, Pereira – Linares
