Deportivo vs Atletico de Madrid – La Liga : In one of the matches of this 10th round of La Liga…
The locals of Deportivo La Coruña, coached by Pepe Mel, will meet the visitors of Atlético de Madrid, managed by Diego Simeone, at the Estadio Municipal de Riazor in Galicia,
with both teams being separated by 9 points going into this match. The local manager won’t be able to count with Bicho, Colak and Gil, while Ruben is still doubtful.
As for the visiting manager, he won’t be able to count with Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco and Filipe Luís, with Koke still being doubtful.
The team from Galicia goes into this match after a very important triumph over Las Palmas on the last round of La Liga,
since they have defeated a direct opponent on the fight to avoid relegation and was therefore able to gain some breathing room on that situation, having their revenge after the Copa del Rey loss suffered a couple of days before that.
The team is having a relatively positive start to the season, having a 5-point advantage over the teams on the relegation zone.
As for Atlético de Madrid, they are probably going through their worst period of results since Diego Simeone took control of the Colchoneros a few years ago,
considering they have only won once on their last 8 matches, drawing in 6 of them and not being able to beat much weaker teams such as Qarabag on the Champions League for example.
Deportivo vs Atletico de Madrid – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Despite Deportivo being far from being the team they once were (one of the most successful in Spain) they are still a resilient team capable of putting up a fight against the big Spanish clubs, especially at home.
Considering that and given the visitors’ bad moment of form, I believe this will be a very close and tactical match, so I’m expecting a low-scoring affair here.
