Villarreal finished 7th last season, but there was a feeling that under Unai Emery they could be worse domestically.
Elche finished 13th last season. The team this season will be very difficult to stay in the top division of the country.
In this match, the hosts are the favorite to win and have a good chance of scoring several goals.
Prediction for this match: Villarreal to win + both to score (no).
