Deportivo La Coruna vs Espanyol Preview

 

Deportivo La Coruna vs Espanyol

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Riazor

Date: 23rd February 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Both of these teams are having a terrible season and they will certainly not approach this game with the most positive of spirits as they are both inside the bottom five of the La Liga table heading into the game.

Espanyol have a 10 points advantage over Depor heading into this game and although they are 16th in the league table, they will be under less pressure to get a result here.

A loss here could change Espanyol’s season but Depor do not really look like a team that could beat them at this moment in time.

Clarence Seedorf has lost his last two games in charge by 1-0 score lines and that doesn’t look like changing here.

Deportivo head into this game with no wins in their last 9 games and they have missed chances to get all three points from “winnable” games.

It is hard for their fans to beat positive ahead of this game.

Espanyol are not so much better but they have one of the best defences in the division which is something their opponents lack.

Espanyol are winless in six games but they have managed to draw their last three games which has given them enough points to stay out of trouble.

Espanyol have scored in their last four games and with Gerard Moreno they have an in-form striker who is the second top scoring Spaniard in the division and looks like he could be on his way to the World Cup.

Deportivo have won 3 of their last 5 home games against Espanyol.
