In one tough and not so attractive match with a small number of real goal opportunities, Sevilla managed to reach all three points in the film finish on the road in Madrid against Getafe with a goal by new player Eric Lamela in the 93rd minute. The guests had the initiative and possession of the ball throughout the match, but they were mostly vague against the organized defence of Getafe. I expect a similar match on Saturday.
Although Elche is also a team that bases its game on solid defence, and although they are a worse team for the class than Getafe, I do not expect an easy task for the favoured Sevilla. This team conceded only one goal in the first two rounds. That happened in a duel against the current champion of Spain, Atl. Madrid. However, the attack is a problem for this team and a large number of teams in LaLiga, so I expect that in this game, the host will be focused on defending their goal.
