Deportivo La Coruna vs Atletico Madrid
Primera Division
Date: 4th November 2017
Kick off at 15:15 UK / 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Riazor (La Coruna).

Deportivo La Coruna picked up a super important victory from Gran Canaria last Monday in what was a relegation-six pointer against Las Palmas.

Can they take advantage of the momentum and shock Atletico Madrid in the 11th round of La Liga on Saturday afternoon at Riazor?

Deportivo La Coruna

Cristobal’s side got the immediate revenge on Las Palmas for the embarrassing 1-4 loss in the first leg of their Copa del Rey tie last Thursday.

Branquiazuis showed a great spirit to come back after conceding an early opener as Celso Borges bagged a brace prior to Lucas Perez’s goal from the spot.

Atletico Madrid

Diego Simeone is in huge troubles after Atleti failed to see off Azerbaijani Qarabag for the second time in a row on Tuesday evening.

The Mattressers thus face shocking group phase elimination in the Champions League having only won three points in four matches so far.

Their La Liga campaign has not been much better either as they are eight points behind Barcelona at the top of the table at the moment.

Deportivo La Coruna vs Atletico Madrid: Head to head

Atletico have generally been the more successful side over the course of the history, but they only managed to leave Riazor victorious five times in 21 matches.

Both of the previous two H2H encounters between the two sides at Riazor saw the teams share spoils by playing a 1-1 draw.

Deportivo La Coruna vs Atletico Madrid: Prediction

Simeone’s side won only a single of last eight outings in all competitions and it is just very hard to see the value in the 1.61 odds offered for the away win here.

Atletico failed to score two or more goals in each of their last eight games and you can back this trend to be continued this Saturday at 1.83 odds.
