Elche vs Valencia match preview

Two of La Liga’s bottom three go head-to-head in this Valencian Community derby, so will this be a Segunda División fixture next season?

Elche’s fate has been sealed for a very long time, sat rock bottom of the table, 17 points from safety, having won just twice all season.

Los Franjiverdes were beaten 2-0 by Girona last weekend, their fourth defeat on the spin, with Sebastián Beccacece their sixth different manager, including caretakers, of the season…. so far.

So, can Valencia do what everybody else is doing and beat Elche?

Well, los Murciélagos suffered a potentially hugely damaging defeat last Sunday night, beaten 2-0 by Sevilla at Mestalla.

Ilaix Moriba’s late red card means he’ll be suspended.

So, with just nine games to go, Valencia are in the relegation zone, three points from safety, in serious danger of their first relegation since 1986.

This clash at Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero feels huge for Valencia because, if they can’t beat Elche, who can they beat?
