Deportivo La Coruna vs Malaga Preview

Deportivo La Coruna vs Malaga

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Riazor

Date: 6th  April 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

These two teams will most likely be playing their football in the Segunda division next season unless a miraculous escape happens in the closing games.

They have taken just 37 points between them this season, so this game is very important to both sides and their fans.

Depor are the better side going into this clash and a win here would help them close the gap with 17th placed Levante to 5 points, however, that may still not happen as they have not won any of their last 15 games and they have no wins under their current manager, Clarence Seedorf.

With 8 games to go, Malaga would need to almost double the 17 points they currently have before they can survive relegation.

That is very unlikely at the moment even though they secured a shock win over Villarreal last weekend.

Malaga have lost 80% of their away games this season and they have the worst away record in the league as well as the worst goal scoring record in the La Liga.

Depor have been doing better defensively recently as can be confirmed by their 1-0 loss at Atletico Madrid last time out.

Bookmakers make Deportivo favourites to come out on top in this game.
