Elche vs Betis predictions and betting tips on February 24, 2023
On February 24, Manuel Martinez Valero (Elche) will host the match of the 23rd round of the La Liga, in which Elche will compete with Betis. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.
The team has been playing for the third season in a row in the La Liga – and this fact is a good achievement itself. Moreover, the 13th place in the previous temporada is considered to be a great success. But it turned into such a deep failure that it seemed that the departure was inevitable and would be confirmed ahead of schedule in combination with a possible update of anti-records. The last hope was the arrival of a new mentor, Pablo Machín, during a long pause. Being under his rule, the team finally managed to take the first victory, which happened in the match against a difficult opponent, Villarreal. Moreover, “the Green-striped ones” “hooked” on the points in the battles with Cadiz and Osasuna. Still, the previous week game resulted in the rout by Real, having conceded four unanswered goals. There were chances with Espanyol, at least for a draw, but Darder scored in the second added minute of the game.
The club, being under the rule of Pellegrini, spent two very convincing seasons, demonstrating both steady progress in the game and improvement in results. In 2022, “the Greens” finally replenished their museum by winning the Copa del Rey. It goes without saying that a lot of fans expected that they would be able to take advantage of the failures of their neighbouring enemy, Sevilla, in the current temporada, replacing it in the Champions League four. Nevertheless, a really strong performance was observed only in August-September. After that, “the Béticos” lost their stability. They had defeats even with rivals such as Espanyol and Celta. On the other hand, the competitors are far from success, which helps to remain among the contenders for the 4th place. Still, even after the team beat Valladolid due to Canales’ goal and assist, it reached only the 5th position.
