Villarreal vs Deportivo La Coruna Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Villarreal were able to pick up a 1-0 victory over Valencia in their final league match. Carlos Bacca provided the only goal of the game in the 24th minute before Simone Zaza earned a sending-off in the 60th minute. Villarreal were also reduced to 10 men after Trigueros’ red card. In the capital required to find, Villarreal suffered a 1-0 defeat in the first leg with Leganes. Deportivo La Coruna were beaten 3-1 by Celta de Vigo at the Riazor. First-half goals from Daniel Wass and Iago Aspas provided a strong lead for the away team. Iago Aspas’ made it 3-0 in the second half before Florin Andone pulled one back for Pepe Mel’s team.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Villarreal are at home for a first league match at the La Ceramica in almost a month. Home comforts have not provided much joy for the Yellow Submarines, as they have lost three out of the last four home matches in all competitions. Deportivo La Coruna’s only away win of the season was against relegation threatened Las Palmas. I would back a victory for Villarreal.

This match is perfect for expecting under 2.5 goals, as both teams come into the game with a mediocre attack. Villarreal have scored 24 goals with La Coruna on 19. The last two games between Villarreal and La Coruna have been goalless draws, while one has to go back to January 2016 to witness a game between these two teams that produced over 2.5 goals. I would opt for under 2.5 goals in this game.

Villarreal Preview

Villarreal have had an inconsistent few weeks, and this has robbed the club of the opportunity to challenge for the top three places. As Real Madrid and Sevilla continue to drop points in the La Liga, it would have been a great opportunity for Villarreal to capitalise on the same. However, the Yellow Submarines have managed to lead two league wins in the last six. There is a higher dependence on Carlos Bacca and Cedric Bakambu for the goals, as the duo have contributed more than 50% of Villarreal’s tally of 24 goals this season. Both players have chipped in with five and nine goals respectively.

Villarreal Team News

Manuel Trigueros is unavailable for the game due to suspension, while Ruben Semedo (thigh), Leonardo Suarez (cruciate ligament), Daniele Bonera (hip), Andres Fernandez (cruciate ligament), Jaume Costa (hamstring), and Roberto Soriano (knee) are unavailable for manager Javier Calleja.

Deportivo La Coruna Preview

Deportivo La Coruna are just outside the bottom three, as the club continue to remain in a battle to avoid relegation. There is substantial pressure coming up from the likes of Deportivo Alaves and Las Palmas, as both clubs have been able to take significant points over the last few games. La Coruna have been slowly pulled into the relegation battle. Surprisingly, Pepe Mel has seen his team score more goals (19) than any other team in the bottom six. Lucas Perez has contributed four of these goals to end up as the club’s top scorer so far.

Deportivo La Coruna Team News

Fabian Schar is suspended for the game, while Bicho (shoulder), Saul Garcia Cabrero (discomfort), Bruno Gama (hamstring), and Federico Cartabia (hernia) are unavailable for the game due to injuries.
