Elche-Villarreal Betting Preview: Why both teams to score is the bet for tonight

Our Spanish expert Phil Kitromilides explains why he thinks neither side will be able to keep a clean sheet on Monday evening
After a tricky start to the season Elche have picked up some momentum with three wins and a draw in their last five matches moving them from the relegation zone into midtable and victory this evening for Fran Escriba's men would see them enter the top half.

BetVictor offer the Ilicitanos at 9/4 (3.25) to claim the three points while a Villarreal side that has been blowing hot and cold recently can be backed at 11/8 (2.38).

The Yellow Submarine's run in the last six matches reads, win, lose, win, lose, win, lose and while they play some fantastic football at times, they cannot always be relied upon to get the result their play deserves, a factor that could put off potential punters.

Instead of backing either side to win, investing in both teams to score looks like a great option at the tempting price of 9/10 (1.90) with BetVictor.

Despite lacking consistency Villarreal are one of the highest scorers in the dvision and will fancy their chances of finding the back of the net against an Elche side that have
kept just two clean sheets in 11 games this season.

Elche though have been taking their chances and both teams to score has paid out in seven of their last 10

This is an excellent price for what looks like a nailed on selection and punters should be confident about investing in goals at both ends.
