class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The La Liga champions have been keeping things tight at the back in recent weeks and we are backing them to be involved in another low-scoring match
Real Madrid travel to the Estadio Martinez Valero to face Elche in La Liga on Wednesday evening in the final match of the year for Zinedine Zidane’s side.
The current Spanish champions are ending 2020 strongly, having racked up six consecutive wins in all competitions, and are clear favourites against a side who have not won in eight league clashes.
Elche vs Real Madrid Latest Odds
Jorge Almiron’s team have won just one of their seven home matches this term and bet365 offer them at 9/1 (10.00) to record what would be their first win against Real Madrid since 1978.
Los Blancos, meanwhile, are priced at 2/7 (1.29) to pick up their 11th league victory of the current campaign with the draw available at 5/1 (6.00) .
Elche vs Real Madrid Team News
The visitors head to Alicante without Brazilian youngster Rodrygo, who picked up a serious injury in last week’s win over Granada and will be missing for three months, but Luka Modric could be available for selection after recovering from a knock.
Elche are likely to be without both defender Diego Gonzalez and midfielder Omenuke Mfulu.
Elche vs Real Madrid Preview
Since suffering back-to-back defeats to Shakhtar Donetsk and Alaves at the start of the month, Real Madrid have gone into ‘champions mode’ by relentlessly grinding out wins as they did at the end of last term to claim their 34th league title.
While they have at times played some dazzling football this month, most noticeably against Atletico Madrid and Eibar, Los Blancos have generally been organized and effective and we should expect another professional performance on Wednesday night.
Los Blancos should be able to keep a poor visiting attack at bay, with only Getafe and Eibar having netted fewer than Elche’s tally of 12 goals this season.
Indeed, Elche’s matches this term have averaged 2.15 goals, one of the lowest totals in the division, and there could be some interest in investing another low-scoring clash on Wednesday evening.
Elche vs Real Madrid Tips And Predictions
Real Madrid to win and under 3.5 goals in the game is priced at a healthy looking 5/4 (2.25) .
Meanwhile, backing just under 2.5 goals in encounter is available at 6/4 (2.50) and has paid out in five of Los Blancos’ eight away league games this term.
