Elche v Valencia Preview, Primera La Liga, Sunday, 24th November 2013

Before the international break Elche faced Getafe away from home and earned themselves a valuable point after going one behind early on in the match to a Pedro Leon goal. It took just over 40 minutes for Elche to find a way back as Boakye dug deep and found an equalizer with half hour left to play. The game was pretty much in Elche’s favor as they continued to pile on the pressure and were disappointed not taking the full reward in regards to the much needed points.

This does not look like the Valencia side who were fighting in the Champions League not so long ago as they currently sit 20 points adrift the top team in the league. Valencia are not usually considered to be a middle table team and often are seen to fight for honors or there a bouts at the end of the season. Unless they start picking up much needed wins they could eventually see themselves slip lower as they currently sit 5 points clear of the relegation battle.

Elche Team News:

Ruben Perez and Aaron Niguez both return from suspension which will be a boost for Elche come Sunday although they are still without attacker Manu who is currently recovering from an ankle injury picked up at the beginning of the month. Elche are also without Lomban with a calf injury.

Valencia Team News:

Valencia seem to be injury free coming into this game on Sunday and will look to put that hard earned point against Real Valladolid to good use as Dorlan Pabon and Sopjiane Feghouli dug deep and pulled Valencia out of a hole after going behind twice in the game. Pabon could of won it for Valencia but sadly shot wide of the mark.

Elche v Valencia Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

With both teams struggling to grab a decent run of results who would hope to see better from a team such as Valencia who are usually battling it out in the Champions League competition. Although they are in the Europa League it is still a slip down in the rankings for this historic club who are currently fighting a financial battle.

Then we have newly promoted side Elche who are not doing too bad considering this is their first visit to the La Liga, and with only sitting 3 points behind Valencia you can imagine they will be looking to take the first scalp as these two face each other for the first time. So it takes us to which selection in regards to a prediction for Sunday’s La Liga game. Well in fairness any sane football follower would choose Valencia for the win here and with them in better form more recently it could be another edge to that choice.

So I am going to back Valencia to win here as well as having a go at guessing a correct score between these two clubs. Which would be a more realistic choice you would have to ask yourself? Well looking at Elche’s recent results you can see they don’t concede too many where as Valencia have only scored 8 goals in their last 5 games. So I would of said either 1 – 0, 2 – 0 or a 2 – 1 result would be fair game I am sure you would agree. We also see Elche only scoring 5 goals in their last 5 games which would back up my 3 predictions for which ever one you choose.

The other choice comes in the form of an Over/Under 2.5 goals which could be worth a shot if you are going for Over.
