Match Date: 31 March 2014 (local time)

Venue: Estadio El Madrigal


Villarreal just ended its 4-match winning streak with a narrow victory against Getafe. The squad has successfully lowered Real Sociedad’s lead to 1 and faces high possibilities of qualifying to the Europa League next season. Its next match is pitted against the struggling Elche.


Marcelino Garcia Toral cannot help but expressed his satisfaction over his side’s recent victory. He acknowledged the solid effort that the boys have shown although he was also quick to admit that the performance was not the best they can offer. Nevertheless, Toral stressed that it did give a moral boost to the whole team and inspiration towards the remaining matches of the season.


In the meantime, Villarreal will serve as a tough test for Elche, which is trying to move farther away from the relegation zone. The club is currently experiencing some problems in their away form as they have already lost 6 of their last 7 matches. They were also scoreless in some of the away matches that they have lost.


Given this aspect at hand, it is not surprising to see Villarreal as the match’s top online betting pick. Expect Villarreal to feature and take advantage of this opportunity to make a stronger finish.


Prediction:  Villarreal
