Deportivo vs Murcia by Neuro
Deportivo La Coruna is coming of a great victory as they won Sabadell on the road with great 3:0 result. Striker Borja made impressive debut for the guests, scoring first two goals while Arizmendi added third one, with their victory being fully deserved and never in doubt throughout the match itself.
With this victory, Deportivo remained close to the top of the table, while the victory represented a big breath for the whole team. After a narrow victory away to Las Palmas in the first round, they lost at home against Cordoba and another negative result could have been very painful for the team. However, they got back to the winning ways and are now expecting another victory, first at home, for further consolidation as the team will chase the promotion this season, while they surely remain one of the top candidates in eyes of the other clubs. Main central defender Kaka (3/0) is injured, while experienced central defender Marchena might replace him getting the first match of the season.
Murcia, on the other side, is coming from a 2:2 home draw against Ponferradina last weekend. Both teams have shown their attacking quality during the game, but also many defensive weaknesses. The hosts had the lead twice, but still managed to get only a point against visitors that never gave up.
As said, Murcia showed some really good phases in attacking lineup in first three matches, but still couldn't get more than four points, a victory, defeat and a draw, as they also have a lot of to improve at the back too. Still, they appear to be more competitive than anyone could have expected and are showing to be way away from the relegation candidates, many have thought about at the start of the season. However they need to find the right balance during the game, something that their coach spoke about while the team completed a roster with signing of offensive Malonga. Midfielder Miguel Guirao is injured, but is also not counted as important part of the team, while offensive Malonga isn't ready for his debut.
Home team is the favorite in this match and will prevail easy or hard. Murcia might be better than we expected, but their still defensive gaps that will be tough to hide against one of the strongest sides in the league.
