Elche vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

Elche are 14th in the league, seven points ahead of 18th-placed Mallorca. While relegation seems unlikely at this point, their form is a source of worry. They have won two of their last five league games.

Elche have relied on the attacking prowess of Pere Milla and Lucas Boye. However, they will be the underdogs going into this game.

Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, have endured an extremely inconsistent season. They are fourth in the league, five points behind second-placed Barcelona. Despite heavy investment last summer, Diego Simeone's men have failed to build upon their success last season.

Atlético Madrid have beaten Real Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano for the very first time. Diego Simeone's side break the streak. 💪

Simeone's brand of football is not liked by all, but there is no denying the impact he has had at Atletico Madrid. Few players this season have stood out for their performances for the club, and the likes of Jan Oblak and Antoine Griezmann have been disappointing.


Despite Atletico Madrid's inconsistencies, they will be the favorites to win this game.
