Espanyol vs Deportivo by Cebela

La Liga is back! Deportivo has already had one match this week in Copa del Rey (which was also very profitable for me :)) and we've had a sneak peak of their current form. I believe they are exactly where they've ended last year. They barely got a draw against Alaves but we must take into consideration that they didn't play with their strongest team, especially their top scorer Andone was missing. Nevertheless, Deportivo can score. On their last 5 matches they've scored at least two goals, on one of those they've scored 5 times against Real Sociedad. It's true that 4 out of those 5 matches were at home, the only away match was at Bernabeu and they've lost it in the last seconds 3 to 2. Further more, on their last 15 matches they weren't able to find the net on only 3 occasions; against Atletico Madrid and Barcelona in La Liga, and Betis in Copa del Rey. They've kept only 1 clean sheet on those 15 matches and that's against last ranked Osasuna.


Espanol has a much better defence. They've kept a clean sheet on 44% of their games, moreover they've kept a clean sheet 3 times on last 8 home matches. It is a good news for Andone and his co-players that Diego Lopez is is injured. The last match they've played against Alcorcon and the game ended 1 : 1, before that they've conceded 4 goals at Camp Nou and 1 against Gijon. They are firmly in middle of the table, closer to the top six than the relegation zone and they have successfully turned around the season after first 8 matches with only one win. Espanol will miss Diego Lopez and as impressive as their defence can be, Depor's attack with Andone will be able to score at least one goal. Deportivo has to gain points to stay in the safe zone and they may start carefully in Barcelona, however they will do everything not to stay empty handed. Deportivo has a strong attack, even though they've won only 4 out of 16 matches, they've shown that they have a powerful attack.


I love these types of matches between lower placed teams with powerful attacks and I predict both teams will score, but because I like overs more, because that way I don't have to worry if one team is outplaying the other I will choose an over 2,5 goals.
