Spain: La Liga
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
It is obvious that the experienced football fans remember well the time when the super popular team of Javier Iruretagoyena was one of the favorites of the Spanish football and had even won a champion race in spring 2000.
Now Deportivo is solving absolutely different problems. Now the hosts of Riazor together with Las Palmas, Malaga and Alaves are fighting for staying in an elite division.
Deportivo da Coruña (the head coach Cristóbal Parralo)
Prior to the next 19th round the team can be proud of only four victories, including one and only in five last matches over Leganes (1:0). But the Blue and the Whites have already ten defeats. Undoubtedly, the last house fiasco of the hosts of Riazor in frames of the Galician derby to Celta (1:3) became the most painful one. Now the team of Cristóbal Parralo which is taken only the seventeenth place has only sixteen points.
València (the head coach Marcelino)
And now it is obvious that according to the results of the forthcoming 19th round the club from La Coruna can fall even on a lower place. Very strong Marcelino’s team has come to Riazor. Today Valencia is taking the third place at the tournament bracket and is fighting against Atletico Madrid for a vice-champion title. And during the previous round the hosts of Mestalla have won over Catalan Girona (2:1).
Despite their guest status quite obvious favorite of the forthcoming meeting is considered to be stronger team of Marcelino. Here, in our opinion, the bookmaker quotation on a victory of the Bats is rather overestimated. And in this situation we propose the following bet:
Deportivo – 3.10, draw – 3.40, València – 2.25;
tip: València (Asian handicap 0) - odds 1.57 5Dimes
