Coro: We can beat Valencia

Elche striker Coro is in no doubt his team can beat opponents Valencia when the teams clash at the Martinez Valero on Sunday.

The 30-year-old, who scored 12 goals in 42 Segunda appearances for Los Illicitanos in last year’s promotion season, believes that apart from the top two in La Liga the rest of the sides are evenly matched.

“Barcelona and Madrid are above the rest, but all the other teams are very equal and it doesn’t matter who comes here,” Coro told a Press conference.

“Valencia are a big name, yet if you look at their results they are like a lot of other sides, so we could quite easily beat them.

“I’m expecting an open game because both will be going for the win, so I think there will be goals. We have to go out with a lot of intensity to try and get the three points.”

Coro is aware that four of the next six fixtures are at home and it is there that top-flight safety this season may ultimately be assured.

“I don’t think about it but to attain safety you must add up in threes, especially at home, and not lower your performance.

“The sooner you add up the points the better but the team is doing well and we must take advantage of that,” he added.
