Elche vs Deportivo La Coruna
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Tuesday, 4 June 2019
Kick-Off 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero (Elche).
Deportivo La Coruna will be desperate to claim spoils on Sunday evening when they travel to Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero for the 41st round tie with mid-table Elche.
The visitors do not depend exclusively on their own in final two games of the season. They are level on points with sixth-placed Cadiz, but have a worse head to head record meaning they need El Submarino Smarillo to slip-up in one of their last two fixtures of the season to make it to the promotional play-offs. Mallorca and Malaga are three and four points above.
Nonetheless, Branquiazuis do come into this fixture with non-motivated Elche as clear favourites just because of the motivation factor. It counted for little when they fell 1-0 away at bottom-half Lugo in the previous match on the road, though. Depor did bounce back with a huge 1-0 victory over Mallorca on Monday evening at Riazor.
Elche vs Deportivo La Coruna: Head-to-head
Deportivo La Coruna demolished Elche 4-0 when teams locked horns in the first half of the season.
Overall, Branquiazuis lead the head to head tie by two wins, but they have a negative record in away matches against Elche.
Los Franjiverdes won three of four home clashes with Depor.
Elche vs Deportivo La Coruna: Prediction
The hosts sit right in the middle of the league ladder and have nowhere to go in remaining two matches. The lack of motivation caused some high-scoring affairs for Pacheta’s troops of late. Los Frajiverdes bagged three goals in each of last three league ties, but they emerged victors just once in the process.
Depor have one of the most lethal predators in the league in the like of Quique who notched 16 goals so far in the season. He is competition’s second top scorer and we believe he should have plenty of room to deliver past the leaky defensive line of Elche’s here. Looking at Elche’s playing style, the value has to be with Deportivo La Coruna to win & Both Teams To Score at the odds of 4.00.
