It is 12th-placed Elche facing 13th-placed Valencia in Friday’s sole La Liga fixture. The visitors will be looking to end their torrid run of away results at the Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero.

Elche Form


Elche picked up exactly where they left off before the international break, extending their unbeaten run in La Liga to three games. 

They have also kept three consecutive clean sheets, the run starting with a 1-0 win away to Eibar and a 0-0 draw with Huesca.

Last time out Elche won 2-0 at Deportivo Alaves thanks to goals from Pere Milla and Tete Morente.

Elche Team News


Lucas Boye and Miguel Ángel Cifuentes are both doubtful. Josema is out until November with a hamstring injury.

Valencia Form


Having allowed key players in Dani Parejo, Rodrigo, Ferran Torres, Francis Coquelin and Ezequiel Garay to leave over the summer, it’s no surprise to see Valencia struggling in the early weeks of the campaign. 

Following an opening weekend victory, Valencia have now won just one of their last five La Liga games.

That includes a run of back-to-back losses against Real Betis and Villarreal, with those results leaving Javi Gracia’s team 13th in the La Liga table. Their away form doesn’t inspire confidence either, with Valencia managing just one win in their last 14 away games in La Liga.

Valencia Team News


Eliaquim Mangala, Geoffrey Kondogbia and Vincente Esquerdo are all unlikely to feature for Valencia this weekend.

Elche vs Valencia Head to Head


These teams have met just four times, Valencia coming out on top on three occasions compared to one for Elche. Valencia were 4-0 winners in the last meeting between the two clubs back in 2015.
