Elche vs Girona – Top Predictions & Free Betting Tips
Elche lost back-to-back games for the first time this season, as they were beat 2-1 by Real Valladolid this weekend. Girona picked up a first victory in eight league outings after the 2-1 success over Athletic Bilbao on Saturday.
Elche head into the game after three defeats in the last four matches, but there is a decent amount of confidence within the team as manager Jorge Almirón tries to get to grips with the players. Girona are on a high after having just registered a first win in eight matches, but Michel and his team are very poor on the road. Michel has also managed just one win against Elche in his coaching days and Girona are one of the three teams yet to win away this season.
Both teams to score – yes
Girona might not have managed a victory in six away matches but they have been averaging a goal per game in this run. Despite the recent win over Athletic Bilbao, Girona have not kept a clean sheet in any league match this season. Elche have been doing relatively well in the final third of the pitch at home.
