Deportivo La Coruna vs Osasuna Match Prediction

By Darren Colebrook

Even though the season is yet to hit midway, this match can be classified as a six-pointer with both teams struggling with the threat of relegation. Bottom club Osasuna have managed one win so far this season, and it came back in October. Despite having some good chances on the counter-attack, they lost 3-0 to Barcelona in the last match. Deportivo La Coruna have not been doing much well either, but they came close to getting an unlikely point in the 3-2 loss against Real Madrid.  Here we have our match preview with all our predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Deportivo La Coruna Preview

Deportivo La Coruna are only one point above the drop zone. They have to thank their home form for this position. Their recent win came at home in a 5-1 thrashing of Real Sociedad. A quite unexpected result, Deportivo La Coruna secured three points largely as a result of not conceding too many goals. Deportivo La Coruna have certainly made their home support count. All of their three league victories this season have come at the Estadio Municipal de Riazor. However, the club would certainly not be happy with their defending after having conceded 12 goals in the last five games.

Osasuna Preview

Bottom club Osasuna have lost their last five games. They have conceded 12 goals while managing to score only one goal during this period. Strangely, they have been doing well on the road after taking four points from the last five games. Such a minuscule points return is unlikely to help them in the relegation battle. The club have been heavily reliant upon Sergio León for their goals. The 27-year-old has four in 12 matches and represents the biggest threat. Osasuna may have averaged a goal per game, but they have scored only one goal since November.

Clerc (ankle) and Mario Fernandez (thigh) are being monitored, while Didier Digard and Javier Flano are out with cruciate ligament injuries. Miguel Flano is out with meniscus injury. Oier is also suspended for the game.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Osasuna have lost five games in a row, and they are without a win since October. All this points towards a Deportivo La Coruna victory considering that the home team have managed to use the home support against teams in and around them in the table. I have seen enough goal threat up front from Deportivo La Coruna to suggest that they might have the firepower to get past Osasuna.

I would also back Deportivo La Coruna against getting their first clean sheet at home this season. Even though the club have shipped a large number of goals in the last five games, my prediction is largely based on Osasuna's inability to score goals. If Deportivo La Coruna find a way to contain Sergio Leon, a big chunk of their defensive task would be complete.
