Deportivo La Coruna vs Las Palmas: Preview and Predictions

Deportivo La Coruna vs Las Palmas
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 17 March 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Riazor (La Coruna).

Saturday’s La Liga schedule will be opened with the super important relegation six-pointer between Deportivo La Coruna and Las Palmas. The two sides are separated by only a single point, they are both in the drop zone, and they will both come into the game low on confidence after most recent failures.

Clarence Seedorf has not managed to turn a corner for Depor ever since taking over Cristobal on the bench recently. The Dutch manager is still waiting for his new team’s first victory under his leadership and he has huge troubles finding the formula which would produce goals in the final third.

La Coruna have scored just once in last seven league outings and they will come into this off the back of another disappointing defeat (2-0 away at Girona last Friday). Las Palmas have managed to see a glimmer of hope when they held mighty Barcelona to a 1-1 draw at their Estadio de Gran Canaria, but they could not capitalize on such result falling to both Celta Vigo and Villarreal in the following two games.

Nonetheless, Paco Jemez clearly has more reasons to be optimistic than his colleague since the Canaries have shown somewhat better performances in these losses (compared to Deportivo La Coruna).

Deportivo La Coruna vs Las Palmas: Head-to-head

Depor lead the head to head tie by six wins ahead of their 16th clash with Las Palmas.

Nonetheless, the Canaries have managed to pick up 3 of their 4 wins on the road.

Interestingly, five of last six head to head games have seen both teams on the scoresheet.

Deportivo La Coruna vs Las Palmas: Prediction

Opposed to the recent H2H trend, we expect to witness a low-scoring contest given that both teams have generally been struggling for goals lately and given that the game has a massive importance fro both managers.

The bookies see Depor as favourites for the spoils, but we’ll grab the value in the away win or draw double chance at the sky-high 2.05 odds knowing that La Coruna are winless in last 13 league affairs.
