Deportivo La Coruna vs Eibar
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 3 March 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Riazor (La Coruna).
Clarence Seedorf is yet to see his new team score a goal as Deportivo La Coruna have failed to find the back of the net in five straight league matches coming into weekend’s clash with Eibar. The poor run of form in the final third has caused the drop into the relegation zone and the hosts are certainly in for a huge battle unil the end of the season.
Can the Gunsmiths’ visit provide a survival lifeline for the Dutch manager? It’s hard to give a positive answer as Eibar will definitely doe into the game as the form favourites after beating Villarreal 1-0 at their Estadio Municipal de Ipurua in the mid-week’s round.
Moreover, the Gunsmiths have been very tough to break down on their most recent travels in Primera Division and they have suffered just a single defeat in last six league games on the road. The loss came just on their previous trip when Celta Vigo were too strong at Balaidos (2-0).
Eibar do have troubles at the other end of the pitch, though. Kike’s difference-maker against Villarreal was their first goal in three league fixtures. The main reason for such slower displays in the final third lies in the injury of Sergi Enrich who is still sidelined. Nonetheless, the likes of Charles, Fabio Orellana and Kike should have what it takes to lead their team to a win against the out-of-form relegation strugglers on Saturday.

Deportivo la Coruna vs Eibar: Prediction
Even though the hosts desperately need points, we believe they’ll hardly find them against the well-organized Eibar side.
The visitors have been very tough to break down lately and we can easy see them claim the spoils against the struggling opposition on Saturday.
