Deportivo La Coruna vs Real Madrid Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Deportivo La Coruna come on the back of an indifferent season that saw the club finish just two places above the relegation zone. The team finished just five points above the drop zone, but the arrival of manager Pepe Mel made a substantial difference in the results. Pepe Mel has been backed in this transfer window with the permanent signing of Guilherme. Pablo Insua is the significant departure from the club. Real Madrid started the season with a victory over Barcelona in the Super Cup. The club has been taking measured steps in the transfer market with the signings of Theo Hernandez and Daniel Ceballos. However, Alvaro Morata and Danilo have left the club. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Real Madrid have won the last six games against Deportivo La Coruna with 26 goals scored and just six conceded. Madrid are once again favourites to win the game, but the Los Blancos may not be set for a high-scoring encounter due to the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo. Two of the last five games between these two at the Riazor has witnessed under 2.5 goals. The Portuguese star contributed an amazing 23% of the 106 league goals scored by the club last season. His absence coupled with the departure of Alvaro Morata weakens the Madrid attack. I would go with under 2.5 goals in the game. Deportivo La Coruna have failed to score only twice in the last three home games against Real Madrid. Real Madrid conceded 21 goals in the 19 away games last season. I would go with both teams to score.

Deportivo La Coruna Preview

The significant improvement in results following the arrival of Pepe Mel midway through last season bodes well for the upcoming season, as Deportivo La Coruna have largely been able to retain most of the players. The addition of Guilherme on a permanent basis is a good move considering that the Brazilian made some key contributions towards the end of the season. Florin Andone was the top scorer at the club with 12 goals and three assists. Deportivo La Coruna ended up with numbers of 43 goals scored and 61 conceded in the league matches.

Deportivo La Coruna Team News

Carles Gil (groin) is unavailable due to injury, while Emre Colak is suspended.

Real Madrid Preview

The lack of significant additions to the squad is unlikely to worry Zinedine Zidane, who has been able to lift the Champions League twice as a manager already. The departure of Alvaro Morata could be the biggest worry, as the 23-year-old finished as the second highest scorer last season with 20 goals and six assists. Zidane appears to have a ready-made replacement in the form of Marco Asensio. The biggest worry for Real Madrid will be starting the new season without Cristiano Ronaldo, who is suspended for the next five matches. Ronaldo scored 42 goals and created 12 for his teammates last season.

Real Madrid Team News

Cristiano Ronaldo is suspended for the game, while Jesus Vallejo (muscle) is unavailable due to injury.
