Getafe vs Deportivo La Coruna
Spain – La Liga
Date: Wednesday, 28 February 2018
Kick-Off at 18:30 UK
Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Perez (Getafe).
Deportivo La Coruna have continued to struggle for goals failing to find the back of the net in fourth subsequent league fixture on Saturday when they played a goalless draw to Espanyol at home. Depor re now winless in ten straight La Liga matches and such run sees them sit two points below the line and they desperately need to get some three-pointers on the board in order to save the top flight status come May.
Starting a winning thread T Coliseum Alfonso Perez will be a challenging task for the visitors given that Azulones have been very tough to beat in their own backyard throughout the season. The impressive home form has actually helped Jose Bordalas’ side break into the top half of the standing which is a major success for the team which has just recently earned the top tier status.
The hosts have kept a clean sheet in six of last seven league games at Coliseum Alfonso Perez and knowing that Depor have been struggling badly with the efficiency in the final third lately, backing the hosts to keep their net untouched looks like a smart call here.
The visitors will need to keep an eye on Getafe’s in-form striker Angel who has been the standout performer of late for Azulones. The Spanish forward has bagged three goals in last two home games against the likes of Celta Vigo and Athletic Bilbao and the clash with the relegation-strugglers might give him a nice chance to keep such form going on Wednesday.
