Stadium: Martínez Valero (Elche).
Referee: Miguel Ortiz.
Saturday's pool of the La Liga 29th round will continue the match between Elche and Valencia. The two average performers do not particularly claim a place in the European competitions, but the relegation zone does not threaten them either. However, there is some motivation for both clubs, because Saturday's match is a small Valencia derby.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
Like any team from the bottom lines, Elche lacks stability. In their last five games, the Valencians have won twice and lost three times, but such results are enough for the hosts to keep their distance from the relegation zone. In particular, Elche has a handicap of 8 points from Cadiz, located in the 18th position. Elche's home statistics are 13th in the division, with 20 points in 13 meetings, five wins, and 16 goals scored.
Valencia's priority tournament is the Copa del Rey. Its final is scheduled for April 23. Despite that, Valencia has gained four points in the two rounds: a 3:1 victory over Granada and a nil-nil draw with Getafe. Valencia is 10 points behind Real Sociedad. It is impossible to score during the remaining 10 rounds to qualify for Europe. Valencia's away statistics are mediocre, 4 wins in 14 games and 19 goals. Yet, there is reason to believe that the Oranges will be properly motivated for the upcoming game. First, the match is a derby, and second, Valencia had a full week to rest and recover.Watch Free Live Stream
