RS vs ELC Dream11 Tips for Real Sociedad vs Elche La Liga Fixtures 7 May


RS vs ELC Dream11: Elche continue their disappointing season as they make the trip to the Basque county to take on Real Sociedad. Real Sociedad have given up on their Champions League hopes after trailing the top 4 by 17 points. They will now look to seal their Europa League spot which will be a challenge as only 2 points separate 5th and 7th place. Elche, on the other hand, are in the relegation zone but are just 1 point from safety. They will be very disappointed by the 1-0 loss to Atletico Madrid last week after missing a penalty in the 91st minute.

Date: 8th May, Saturday
Kick-Off: 12:30 am (IST)
Venue: Reale Seguros Stadium, Basque

La Liga Table: Real Sociedad is in 5th place with Elche in 19th place.

Likely Winner:

The RS vs ELC Today Match Prediction will be a crucial game for both sides. As the La Liga reaches an end, Real Sociedad will want to seal their Europa League spot with Villarreal and Real Betis lurking. Elche has a great opportunity to finally leave the relegation zone but only a win will suffice for them. Sociedad have been great this season scoring 51 goals and conceding just 35 goals. Both sides will be looking to respond to their respective defeats but they have found wins hard to come by. This game should be a win for Real Sociedad.
