Las Palmas vs Deportivo La Coruna
Spanish La Liga
Date: Friday 20th January, 2017
Kick-off: 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio de Gran Canaria, Las Palmas.
It will be very interesting to see how Las Palmas react after a devastating 5-0 loss to Barcelona at Camp Nou last weekend. The Canaries played one of their worst games since the start of the season. And they could have easily lost by higher margin if it wasn’t for Javi Varas. Their head-coach Quique Setien hopes to see his team getting back on track instantly in home match against Deportivo La Coruna.
The visitors are yet to suffer a defeat in the New Year and they have six games on the bounce without a loss in all competitions. However, four of their latest fixtures ended in draws and got eliminated from Copa del Rey by Alaves on away goal rule.
Away from home, it has been a huge struggle for Gaizka Garitano and his men. Depor are yet to register an away win on the road since the start of the 2016/17 LaLiga season.
Las Palmas vs Deportivo La Coruna: Head-to-Head Stats
Interestingly, the teams have never shared a point in ten head to head encounters. La Coruna have been more successful winning seven times, but the Canaries came out victorious from the last match played in April last year when they took a 1-3 win; thanks to a brace from Sergio Araujo and a goal from David Garcia.
Las Palmas vs Deportivo La Coruna: Prediction
Setien has the privilege to count on his main stars. Las Palmas have not suffered a single defeat in nine home matches in Spanish La Liga this season. They have won three out of last four games on Canaria Islanders. Knowing that Depor have conceded at least three goals in last five away fixtures, we simply have to take the 1/1 odds offered by the bookies on the home win in this one.
