Deportivo La Coruna vs Girona Preview

Deportivo La Coruna vs Girona

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Riazor

Date: 23rd October 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

This will not be the most competitive game of this new week as these two teams are struggling and look likely to finish inside the relegation zone.

Deportivo are the most potent of these two when it comes to the final third.

They seem to be on an upward curve too after a poor start to the league season.

They have 7 points from their last 4 games and this game provides them an opportunity to record a third straight win at home.

Florin Andone and Lucas Perez will be fighting for the top attacking spot on the team and both have enough pace to cause confusion among Girona’s back four.

Depor have netted in all but one of their last 8 home games and they will be expected by their fans to score a couple of goals here.

Girona will be without their top attacker Christian Stuani for this game.

The former Premier League attacker has scored four of their 7 top flight games so far and looks to be single handedly dragging this team along in the league.

With almost no other attacker who can provide the goals they need, it is obvious to see them struggling in this game.

Home advantage could help Deportivo get all three points here however this fixture is an interesting match-up and Girona are not without a chance.
