Deportivo vs Espanyol – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This Friday at the Riazor, we’ll have two teams that share very negative moments of form and that have been conceding goals in all of their most recent matches.
In that sense, I believe that the market with most value is the goals market, more precisely during the first 45 minutes.
On the 24 rounds that Deportivo played, in 19 (80%) of them we have witnessed goals before half-time.
Regarding Espanyol, the percentage is slightly lower, but they also transmit confidence, with 17 of their 24 matches (70%) in the league having goals during the first half.
