Real Sociedad vs Elche Prediction 19 March 2023

Real Sociedad take on the visitors Elche in the round 26 match of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Sunday, February 19th at Reale Arena (San Sebastian).

Real Sociedad are the clear favorite in this match and is likely to win. Under the guidance of Imanol Alguacil, the team is significantly better than their opponent. In La Liga, the team is fighting for medals and a place in the Champions League zone. In 25 championship matches, they have conceded 24 goals, which is less than one per game on average. "Los Blancos y Azules" have already kept a clean sheet nine times in the current season of La Liga. Can they keep their goal untouched in their home match against the worst team in the league? And why not?

Although Elche have begun to show some fight for survival, it remains the weakest team in the championship. They are also the worst in terms of goal-scoring. In 25 matches, they have scored only 19 goals, with more than half of them coming in home games. In 12 away matches, Elche players have scored only 8 times, which is less than one per game on average. Eleven matches of the current season have ended with this team failing to score. It is unlikely that Pablo Machin's team will be able to hit Real Sociedad's goal.

I have huge doubts about the visitors ability to score in this match. Their performance this season leaves much to be desired, while the hosts look reliable in defense. Real Sociedad has only kept a clean sheet once in their last four matches. However, they only conceded one goal to Mallorca, Valencia, and Celta each. It is far from certain that the main outsider of the championship will be able to repeat the success of these teams. Elche is not impressive in attack, scoring only four goals in their last five matches. I lean towards the favorite winning with a clean sheet. However, I also acknowledge that "Los Blancos y Azules" may fail to score themselves, as was the case in their recent match against Celta (0-1). Two matches ago, Elche beat Mallorca 1-0, and they are also capable of playing reliably in defense. Additionally, the hosts will approach this match tired after their Europa League game against Roma. Based on all of the above, I will not bet on the absence of goals from the guests and will simply play "Both teams to score: No" for a slightly more modest coefficient. In the last five head-to-head matches between Real Sociedad and Elche, goals were only exchanged in one match.

Prediction for the match: Both teams to score – no.
