Deportivo La Coruna vs Valencia Predictions

This game is really a tale of two teams that have fallen on hard times and Monday’s clash is likely to fall well short in terms of quality on the games they used to have during their golden eras of the early 2000’s. Both sides have sold key players over the summer and for the most part failed to replace them properly so it’s no surprise they are both currently in the bottom six.

Of the two though it is Valencia that still look to have more quality. They gave Barcelona a real fright last time out and have made some improvements since switching coaches and appointing Cesare Prandelli. They’ve collected 9 points from their last 5 league games and have looked a bit more threatening in the final third and have scored at least once in 78% of their matches this term. They’ve won their last two matches on the road 2-1 and both were against sides expected to struggle, so they’ll feel they are capable of coming here and winning so we should see quite a positive approach from them.

The problem for Valencia remains at the back. They’ve conceded exactly 2 goals per game on average this term and are yet to keep a clean sheet. In fact their record now stands at just 1 clean sheet in 37 matches in La Liga which is an extraordinary statistic. Depor aren’t great going forward but it looks highly likely they will grab a goal at some point in this one. Both teams have scored in 75% of Deportivo’s home games this term so there have been goals at the Riazor but they’ve conceded 4 times in each of their last two matches.

Therefore, it looks likely we will see goals here, more because neither side are great defensively and mistakes are likely rather than their respective attacking threat. Both teams have scored in 78% of Valencia games this term and you can back Both Teams to Score at 3/4 here.
