- Valencia have drawn three of their last five home games in La Liga.
- Three of Elche’s last five away games in the league have ended all-square.
- These two sides have been involved in a combined 16 draws already this season.
Mestalla stalemate on the cards
Valencia are struggling at the wrong end of the table largely because they are drawing too many games, with three of their last five league matches at the Mestalla ending all-square.
Indeed, no team has drawn more La Liga home games than Los Che this season, with exactly half of their 10 matches on their own patch ending in stalemate.
Elche have also drawn plenty of league games this season, as they can match Valencia’s overall tally of eight, which means combined the two teams have drawn 16 of their 38 top-flight games to date this term.
Draws have been particularly common for Elche on the road of late, with three of their last five games on their travels ending all-square.
Given there are also just three points separating these two sides in the standings, we are predicting them to play out another draw on Saturday.
We are also predicting goals in the fixture, as only three of their combined 16 draws so far this season have finished 0-0.
