Real Madrid vs Deportivo La Coruna Betting Tip and Predictions. In the Round 19 in Spanish Primera Division, Real Madrid host Deportivo La Coruna at Santiago Bernabeu. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for this game.
Real Madrid stand at the 3rd position with 4 points less than current leader FC Barcelona and they are one of the main candidates for the title this season in La Liga. After they took “only” 7 points from the possible 12 in the last four matches, the management of Real Madrid decided to sack Rafa Benitez and they appointed ex-star Zinedine Zidane as a new manager. It’s not a secret that players wasn’t like Benitez, so they will be happy to work with the one of the best players ever. Zidane has announced that he will play attacking football and want to win both trophies this season – Primera Division and the UEFA Champions League. This will be his first test.
Deportivo La Coruna play very solid this season and after 18 rounds they are standing at the 7th position. Their main goal is to finish the season in the top 10 and eventually reach the place which leads in the qualifications for the UEFA Europa League. Visitors lost only three times this season and they hope that can go back with one point in the pocket. Their best player, Perez, who scored 12 goals this season, is in the great form and he will be the most dangerous player for Real defence. Interesting fact about Deportivo is that they lost only once this season on away ground (3-5-1).
