DEP.LA CORUNA VS LAS PALMAS PREVIEW & PREDICTION
Undoubtedly this match will be a battle from the initial stage. And we say it in the good sense of the word, since the two fight to save themselves from direct descent. For this reason and knowing that the Galicians have the locality factor of Riazor, we believe that they will finally be able to wake up and add 3 units in their locality. Of course, a tactical and closed duel is expected, as the Unión Deportiva has improved its level by playing away from home.
Dep. La Coruna
The Galicians are still sunk in the zone of direct descent, after losing 2-0 against Girona in Montilivi. With 19 points in total, the team has not won for a long time, being devastated from the soul and from the football. Of course, is alternating defeats and draws in his last 5 presentations, still having chances to stay in the first division.
As a local in Riazor, Deportivo has reaped very poor results for its aspirations. Therefore, it should not surprise us that he is seriously committed to the direct decline (3 wins, 4 parities and 7 falls, scoring 14 goals and conceding 22 on his fence). In this 2018, he lost 1-2 to Valencia, drew 2-2 against Levante, tripped 0-1 against Betis, drew 0-0 against Espanyol and equaled 1-1 against Eibar.
The boys of Paco Jémez lost 0-2 before Villarreal in Gran Canaria and they were left with 20 points in the general table. The team has added 2 losses in a row, having to wake up if you do not want to descend. At the moment, it is at 4 Levante, it is vital that it improves on offensive matter (generates situations but does not specify them).
La Unión Deportiva has not registered good results as a visitor, after winning 1 match, equaling another 3 and losing the remaining 10 that it played. Of course, his performance has improved greatly in this condition since the arrival of coach Paco Jémez. After the goals suffered against Girona and Atlético de Madrid, the team drew 0-0 against Athletic Bilbao and 0-0 against Leganés, then lost in a tight fashion against Celta (2-1).
Both teams played last year and the result ended up being favorable for Deportivo for the Copa del Rey (2-3 in November 2017). In Riazor there have been mixed results, after winning Las Palmas 1-3 in April of 2016, winning Deportivo 3-0 in May of 2017 and winning the Sports Union 1-4 in October of 2017 (contest cupper).
PREDICTION: Dep. La Coruna to win @ 1.75
