- Both meetings between these sides in Segunda last term finished goalless.
- Eight of Cadiz’ ten La Liga games have produced under 2.5 goals including four of their five away assignments.
- Elche have scored just three home goals in four matches, conceding five.
- The hosts are averaging 0.8 goals per game this season, with Cadiz averaging exactly 1 goal per game.
Segunda Meetings a Big Indicator
Elche and Cadiz cancelled each other out in both Segunda meetings last term and a similar scenario could play out this Saturday at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero.
Cadiz would have been readily fancied for this clash had it occurred before the international break, but their tremendous start to the campaign which included 0-1 away victories at Athletic Bilbao and Real Madrid has been somewhat halted in their last two outings.
A 0-1 defeat to leaders Sociedad was followed by a chastening 4-0 drubbing at Atletico Madrid last weekend and Alvaro Cervera’s men may be content to shore things up a little when they turn out in Valencia this Saturday.
While defeats to both Sociedad and Atleti are hardly disastrous for a newly promoted club, there’s little appeal in backing the Andalusians here against an Elche side unbeaten in three at home – particularly after the sides’ aforementioned results last term.
With no goals across both of the clubs’ last two meetings, it may pay to back another low scoring affair this time around. Eight of Cadiz’ ten La Liga matches have produced under 2.5 goals including four of their five games on the road.
Hosts Elche are averaging just 0.8 goals per game but have conceded just nine goals in total, so under 2.5 rates a solid wager. With a cagey encounter on the cards and Elche losing just one of their last six, we can also see this fixture ending all square and 1-1 is our correct score forecast.
