Deportivo La Coruna vs Getafe: Preview and Prediction

Getafe continues their survival battle as they travel to Estadio Municipal de Riazor to face Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday evening.

Deportivo are at the 14th position in the Spanish La Liga table with 39 points, 6 points above the drop zone, while the visitors are in the 19th position with 32 points, 3 points behind Sporting Gijon in the 17th position.

For Getafe to survive the drop, they have no option than to win the remaining three games, hoping that teams above the relegation zone will lose at least two games.

Form comparison

Both teams are in extremely poor form, Deportivo have won just 1 game in their last 19 games in the league.

Getafe also have won just 1 game in their last 15 La Liga games.

Deportivo are seen as the draw specialist, they have drawn 18 games in La Liga this season.

Getafe have lost 5 of their last 6 away games in La Liga this season.

Deportivo La Coruna vs Getafe: Head-To-Head stats

Both teams have had fair share of wins in the games against each other, both teams have won 6 times each and drawn 7 times in their 19 games together.

Getafe are currently unbeaten in their last 8 games with Deportivo and they are also unbeaten in their last 6 visits to the Riazor.

Deportivo La Coruna vs Getafe: Prediction

Both teams are in bad run of form, which makes none of them favourites in this fixture, but with the battle of survival on Getafe’s neck and their recent dominance against Deportivo, I think it won’t be bad to be on Getafe’s side.

Both teams have a low scoring form, they have hardly scored above 2 goals against their opponent in their last 6 matches which depicts that the possibility of 3 goals to be seen in this game is low.
