Sevilla and Elche

Match Date: 18 May 2014 (local time)

Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan


While it seems as if Sevilla has nothing to play for, this will not keep the online betting favorite from the strong desire to dominate the match against Elche.


The Sevillistas still has one more mission left before the season ends and that is to protect the 5th spot from Real Sociedad’s threats. Sevilla’s 1-point lead over its closest rival is barely enough to guarantee that they will keep such rank. They had the chance when they went against Getafe. Unfortunately, the latter proved to be the better and stronger club.


But the odds are back into their favor again. With the match set in their territory, Sevilla can readily use this advantage to put an end to La Real’s ambitions. The Sevillistas are undefeated in  their last 7 home matches. The club also maintains an impressive form, which is an important ingredient in snatching a win against Elche.


Speaking of Elche, the newly-promoted squad has successfully kept its La Liga status. Yet, if they are aspiring for a finish that is stronger than what they expect, then going against Sevilla is the chance that they are waiting for.


Elche’s present form is readily capable of competing against Sevilla. The former shares the same form with Sevilla. Both have managed to win thrice, drew twice and lost twice. The Los Franjiverdes, however, has never won against Sevilla in their former encounters. Yet, they managed to force a draw. Due to this, there is a strong possibility for this clash to end in an even steven finish.


Prediction: Sevilla or draw
