Deportivo La Coruna vs Alcorcon
Spain – Segunda Division
Date: Monday, 4 March 2019
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Abanca-Riazor, La Coruna.
Deportivo La Coruna have struggled to turn clashes their way lately despite tough defensive displays, now sitting three points behind the table-toppers Osasuna as they host Alcorcon for their Matchday 28 clash on Monday evening.
Branquiazuis have thus been held off by Tenerife, Gimnastic Tarragona, and Malaga in their last four outings and only boosting the points total to six with a win over Granada seen along the way seems like a much-needed confidence booster. They will now want more against mid-table rivals and this could prove an important battle for their top 2 ambitions.
Alcorcon do come into the match on the back of a 2-0 win over Las Palmas but it only ended a three-game losing streak and marked their second win in 12 outings. They will want to build on it but it feels a trip to La Coruna is far from the best possible chance to do so, especially with the visitors struggles to score goals away from home over the past couple of months.
Deportivo La Coruna vs Alcorcon: Head-to-head
Alcorcon have bagged a narrow 1-0 win over the rivals earlier this term with a single goal from Nono.
This has ended a three-game winning streak in head-to-head clashes for Deportivo La Coruna.
We have been used to narrow and low-scoring contests on both sides’ ends lately.
Deportivo La Coruna vs Alcorcon: Prediction
We now hope for another such occasion but we do see Deportivo La Coruna turning it their way, as we go for a Home win at 1.61. We do feel they’ll have to base the success on a tough defensive display but we do see them capitalizing on the rivals’ woes on the road.
With that in mind, we don’t see many goals on the day either and we’ll now also stick with La Coruna to keep a clean sheet – which comes at 1.70 and looks like a safe bet too with Alcorcon struggling to create and convert their chances recently and Cristobal looks desperate for a cure.
