Deportivo La Coruna were in fine form at the end of previous year, winning all 3 home fixtures in December, scoring a lot of goals. But it can be difficult for them to score again many goals as hosts have some absences amongst offensive players. Carles Gil is injured, Ryan Babel (3 goals at Riazor in previous month) left the club. Offensive midfielder Fajr is on African Cup of Nations, whereas best striker Andone remains doubtful. On Friday, Deportivo have important La Liga game against Espanyol and rotations should be expected. Anyway, hosts will field strong defensive line as there are no missings at the back apart from Laure, who is not an important player anyway. Alaves have good situation with the squad and their next league match will take place on Sunday. This is going to be a clash between two defensive-minded sides, with coaches who like defensive football. In La Liga fixture earlier this season there was a goalless draw when those two teams came across and that was a very boring, tactical game.
