      Deportivo La Coruna vs Villarreal Predictions


      These clubs are right in the shake-up for the European places right now but with the season not even at the half-way mark, both managers will know that there is still a long way to go. Deportivo have only lost twice so far, a record that no side in the division can better although of the sides currently in the top 8, they are the one considered most likely to fall away.

      Their 0-0 draw at Getafe in midweek marked their 10th match without a defeat but it was their 4th draw in 5 matches and they have drawn over half of their home games this season, winning just 3 of 9.

      Villarreal come here in fine form having won their last 4 matches in all competitions without conceding a goal. They haven’t been easy matches either and increasingly the Yellow Submarine are starting to look like serious Champions League contenders. Their most recent win was a 1-0 triumph over Valencia while they’ve also beaten Real Madrid at home by the same scoreline over the past month.

      A Denis Suárez brace also fired them to a 2-0 victory at Real Sociedad in their last away game and their ability to pick up wins on the road could be crucial to their ultimate success this season and this is a good test of their credentials.

      Both sides are available at 5/6 in the ‘draw no bet’ market which indicates that it is likely to be a close game but Villarreal have the greater quality in their side and also the bigger squad to cope with what is going to be a hectic month of action for both clubs.

      Therefore consider backing Villarreal to win this and make it 5 wins on the spin but given Depor do draw so many games, it is worth doing it in the ‘draw no bet’ market.

      Villarreal have been very solid defensively of late and that has helped them hold on for some crucial wins. They’ve won 1-0, six times already this season in all competitions and at 13/2 are good value to do the same here.
