We say it everytime, but it’s a difficult season for Valencia. The main reason for this is the club’s financial situation. They had to sell some classy players and they didn’t really replaced them. Because of this Los Che are now 14th in the standings with 20 points won. This is their reality right now.

Valencia won just one of their last five matches in the league. This happened against Real Valladolid away from home. Javi Gracia’s team have won just four matches this season.

In the previous round the former champions lost for a 8th time during the campaign. Valencia faced Atletico Madrid in the capital, but suffered a 1-3 loss. Uros Racic actually opened the score for the visitors, but Atleti dominated after this.

Elche are in the relegation zone of La Liga. The club is 19th in the standings with just 17 points won. This is just three points behind their next opponent, though. It’s not much of a difference. It should also tell you how close Valencia are to the danger zone.

Elche won just two points in their last five matches in the league. In their last game they hosted Barcelona at home, but got outplayed for a 0-2 defeat. They didn’t do much against the Catalans.

That’s the football prediction betting tips today for the La Liga fixture between Valencia and Elche. Let’s see if the hosts can make a step in the right direction. The truth is this is a fine opportunity for them to win points against a weak opponent. But at same time Elche also need points, so they won’t give up easily.
