Deportivo La Coruna vs Racing Santander prediction
Deportivo La Coruna did just fine in a 1:0 victory on the road to Numancia last time out in LaLiga2 already ten days ago.
However, it has to be said that the major situation happened in the 40th minute when the hosts remained playing with a man less when their midfielder Ledes got a red-card.
Even before that moment, it was Deportivo who looked more concrete with the chances created, especially when speaking about sharpness and overall creativity with the ball.
The difference just got bigger in the second halftime, as the guests took the lead via Somma in the 54th minute, but remained to be better on the field.
This was now their second consecutive victory in LaLiga2, as the team remains in a difficult situation but looks like improving it slowly.
Deportivo got excluded from the Copa del Rey competition last weekend, but the team anyway doesn't have their full focus there, being in a difficult situation in LaLiga2 anyhow.
Defender Simon (3/0) is out injured, as well as midfielder Jovanovic (11/1) and forward Santos (19/3). Another forward Mollejo (18/3) is suspended for this one.
Santander comes from yet another game with no victory, taking a point in a goalless game away to Mirandes last time out.
It was their fifth game in LaLiga with no three-pointer, as the side didn't look that passive, but couldn't break the opponents' defense either.
The overall impression is that they did create slightly more, however, it was the hosts who missed a penalty kick at the start of the match.
Still, it's a positive result for Santander since it's on the road, having now 0-7-4 record away from home and they are currently just second from the bottom with a point more than Deportivo.
The guests continue missing injured midfielder Kitoko (9/0), plus defenders Delgado (15/0), Olaortua (15/0), midfielder Nkaka (7/0) and forwards Barral (9/1) and Tresaco (1/0).
As already said, Deportivo does look like a side that slowly improves their performances and if they are to continue in the same manner, or repeat anything similar to the last two performances, they should be even bigger favorites against just modest Santander.
Another passive approach from Santander and there is probably nothing else left for them, should be just what improved Deportivo needs.
