Spanish La Liga
Valencia to beat Elche @ 1.90 (Bet365) – 2.5 points
Valencia head into this derby game against Elche knowing that they have good form behind them winning 5 out of their last 6 games with the only other game being a solid draw against Atletico Madrid. They have performed well both home and away during that spell, and will be encouraged to push on with another victory to cement their UEFA Champions League qualification for next season.
For Valencia they will welcome back Mustafi, Feghouli and Fuego while they will miss Negredo through injury and Rodrigo through suspension. A lot will rely on Piatti, Parejo and the returning Alcacer to fill up their goals for tonight. Valencia know that they play ahead of their team mates and victory will go a long way to put pressure on the Atletico Madrid side.
Elche have been a mixed bag all season, and that has seen them sit in 15th spot in the table. They have lost games against all the top sides, while securing wins against sides around them. Elche’s biggest problem has been their goal scoring, where they have only netted 23 goals from 27 games played home and away. They have lost their last 2 outings against Valencia by conceding at least 2 goals in both those games.
Valencia have form, goal scoring and good defensive attitude about them, and should secure victory tonight.
