Valencia to Win

While Elche is already written off as they are currently seventeen points behind the first team outside of the relegation zone, Valencia is three points behind the same team as they try to avoid relegation.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

We saw more than three goals in three of the last five head-to-head duels between these teams, which is the main reason why our second Elche vs Valencia prediction is for the game to go over 2.5 total goals.

Furthermore, Elche averaged 2.72 goals per game in La Liga this season, while Valencia averaged 2.28 goals per game in the league so far, which bodes well for our prediction.

Elche – Valencia Preview: Team News, Injuries, and Probable Lineups

Read all of the latest team news for this match, including our predicted Elche vs Valencia lineups.

Elche

In the last six matches in La Liga, Elche has one win, along with a draw and four losses. This is not a surprising run of form for them either since Elche has been abysmal this season, winning two of their twenty nine games so far. With a record like that, it's clear why they are in the last place in the standings and basically already in La Liga 2.

When it comes to team news, Helibelton Palacios, Fidel, and Jose Angel Carmona are out with injuries, while Ezequiel Ponce and Gerard Gumbau are suspended right now.

Elche Predicted Lineup:

Badia – Roco, Mascarell, Bigas, Clerc – Morente, Nwankwo, Guti – Milla, Boye, Morente

Valencia

Just like their next opponent, Valencia also lost four of their last six games and they find themselves in the relegation zone as well. However, they are in much better position than Elche since they are currently just three points behind the first team in the safe zone, but given their poor form this season and lately, The Bats have a lot of reasons to worry right now.

Meanwhile, Thierry Correia, Jaume Domenech, Marcos de Sousa, and Justin Kluivert are on the team's injury list at this time, while Hugo Duro and Ilaix Moriba are suspended.

Valencia Predicted Lineup:

Mamardashvili – Foulquier, Diakhaby, Ozakacar, Gaya – Castillejo, Gonzalez, Almeida – Lino, Cavani, Perez

Player to Watch: Edison Cavani

Since we can see Valencia getting the much-needed three points from this match, our player to watch is Edison Cavani, as The Bats will need his experience and scoring ability to win this game.

The veteran forward had a solid season for the team so far, although far from spectacular. In La Liga, he netted five goals in eighteen appearances, but he is a player that can decide a match like this with one move.
