Deportivo La Coruña vs Valencia – La Liga : This is a match between two opposite ends of the league table.
Deportivo, who is fighting to leave the relegation zone, hosts Valencia, which is a team fighting for the top spots, in La Coruña
This match has all the ingredients to be a match with goals,
where the favouritism should go to the visiting side because they have more solutions, more quality and are more motivated.
Deportivo is currently one place above the relegation zone, sitting with 16 points in 18 matches at the moment, thanks to a record of 4 wins, 4 draws and 10 losses.
It is at the Riazor that Deportivo manages to get most of their points, with 3 of the 4 wins they’ve gotten being achieved at their own stadium. However, the team also has 5 losses in La Coruña.
Deportivo has been on the fight to avoid relegation for almost the entirety of the season for several years and it looks like the history will be the same this season.
Valencia has been one of this La Liga’s surprises. They have been making an excellent campaign and currently sit in 3rd place fighting with the teams from Madrid for a spot in the top 3.
Valencia plays well, has excellent performers on the attack and a lot of defensive safety, with some players from their Cantera shining.
To increase the quality of the Ché roster came the winger Vietto, that on his debut for Valencia on Wednesday in the Copa del Rey scored a hat-trick.
Valencia is the 2nd best attack of the competition by far, with 38 goals in 18 matches. This is a team that always scores and in this match, I believe they will score again. For this match, they have the absences of Soler and Kondogbia.
On the last 5 matches in La Coruña, Deportivo has only beaten Valencia once.
Deportivo La Coruña vs Valencia – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I don’t believe in any other result other than a Valencia win here. The team has been playing well and with the arrival of Vietto they gained more quality and solutions in attack.
Valencia has been doing well playing away from home and the can’t drop points on the fight for top 3 and consequent qualification for the Champions League.
As for Deport, they are looking to get some points to leave the bottom spots, but they lack quality to match-up well with teams of Valencia’s style,
therefore I can only expect a win for the visitors here, and I will protect myself from an eventual draw in case there is an upset.
