Our Spanish expert Phil Kitromilides explains why the price of 10/11 for both teams to score offers punters genuine value in this Liga fixture on SundayIt has been a long time since Elche have faced their rivals from the regional capital, yet after a 24 year wait the franjiverdes host Valencia at the Estadio Martinez Valero on Sunday evening.
While Elche will be relatively happy with their current position of 14th after so long an exile from the top flight, Valencia will be desperate to pick up points to move up the table, with Los Che currently laguishing in ninth spot.
William Hill make Valencia the 6/4 (2.50) favorites while a home win can be backed at 15/8 (2.87) and the draw is offered at 11/5 (3.20).
Though Valencia possess a clearly superior starting 11, Miroslav Dukic's side have been a woefully unpredictable for punters this season, having already lost six league matches.
Valencia do always seem to score, but recently they have been conceding goals as well, and with Elche in decent scoring form themselves, both teams to score looks like a serious option.
It is offered at the highly attractive price of 10/11 (1.91), and the statistics make this bet all the more appealing.
Valencia have scored in each of their last 24 league matches, with both teams to score paying out in nine of their 13 league matches so far this season.
Elche for their part, have scored in seven of their last nine matches, and will be seriously up for the arrival of their more illustrious neighbours.
The price should be smaller for both teams to score, but thankfully it is not, meaning punters should consider this an excellent weekend bet.
