Reason For Deportivo La Coruna vs Valencia Betting Tips

These have been two of the underachieving sides in La Liga in recent years, certainly in the context of where they were both at during the early years of this century. However this season, while Depor are again flirting with relegation, Valencia have finally found their way and under the stewardship of the impressive Marcelino, they look capable of sealing a return to the Champions League.

They certainly justify their status as favourites to win this match. Valencia stuttered in December with injuries and suspensions starting to rack up but they really seem to have benefited from the break and have come back stronger, with most of their key players fit again.

Los Che have started 2018 with a convincing 5-1 aggregate win over Las Palmas in the Copa del Rey and an important 2-1 victory against Girona in La Liga. Victory here too would really signal they are over their slump and they have done well on the road, taking 1.75 points per game from their away fixtures in La Liga.

The Riazor is certainly not one of the toughest places to go these days. Depor have lost a worrying 56% of their home league fixtures this term. They’ve been in or around the relegation scrap for many seasons now and with all the newly promoted sides doing pretty well, this might just be the year where there is not three worse teams than them.

They are currently just one point outside the relegation zone, with their last eight matches in La Liga producing just one win and five defeats. No side in the Spanish top flight has collected fewer points over that period so the pressure is really mounting on boss Cristóbal Parralo, who replaced Pepe Mel earlier in the campaign.

Given all that, backing Valencia Draw No Bet looks a pretty safe bet here as Depor you’d imagine would gladly take a point right now.

They may struggle to get it though. With their key men back and firing, Valencia are a really dangerous attacking side and their average of 2.11 goals per game is the second best in La Liga behind Barcelona. They actually have a higher scoring average away from home than at the Mestalla and their away fixtures have produced a huge 3.63 goals per game in total. Given that, backing Valencia & Over 2.5 Goals looks good.

Head To Head

Depor are without a win in 5 games against Valencia and have won just 1 of the last 20 meetings in La Liga so they really tend to struggle against Los Che.

Deportivo La Coruna vs Valencia Stats

  • Valencia have won six of their last 11 league visits to Riazor (D4 L1). Indeed, no away side has won more top-flight games in La Coruña this century than Valencia (seven – level with Barca).

  • Valencia have only lost two of their last nine away league games (W5 D2), with both defeats arriving in their last two on the road (1-0 vs Getafe and 2-1 against Eibar).

Deportivo La Coruna Team News

Fabian Schar returns from a ban and should come in for Raul Albentosa in central defence. Adrian Lopez is an injury doubt but should be fit to start on the left flank. Florin Andone may be preferred to Lucas Perez up front.

Valencia Team News

Simone Zaza and Martin Montoya return from bans and should both start. Midfielders Andreas Pereira and Geoffrey Kondogbia are suspended here though which could see new signing Francis Coquelin make his debut following his switch from Arsenal.
