03/03/2018 Kick Off:  5:30 pm Riazor V Predicted Score:0 - 1

Away SD Eibar

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

A 1-0 scoreline. Eibar’s last two wins have finished 1-0, and they’re 17/2 to make it three in a row. Deportivo haven’t won a game since they beat Leganes 1-0 in early December, and they’re also 17/2 to win by the same margin.

2 We fancy:

Eibar to win to nil at 4/1. Mendilibar has his team performing brilliantly, while opposite number Seedorf can’t get his new charges going. Los Armeros don’t fire in too many goals, but Depor concede more than two a game on average.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Andone to score the only goal of the game is 30/1. The 24-year-old Romanian is Deportivo’s top scorer, and his team need his goals if they’re going to avoid the drop. This would be a priceless first win for Seedorf.

Deportivo de La Coruna's Last Six:

Won: 0 Drawn: 2 Lost: 4

Federico Valverde is out for another couple of weeks after injuring his hamstring last month, although Deportivo boss Clarence Seedorf could welcome back a trio of players for this one. Raul Albentosa Redal, Edu Esposito and Bicho are all being monitored day to day and are in with a chance.

SD Eibar's Last Six:

Won: 3 Drawn: 1 Lost: 2

Sergi Enrich is nearing a return for the visitors, after suffering a meniscus injury in January. This game could come too soon for him, while on-loan midfielder Fran Rico is expected to be out until the end of the month with a knee problem of his own.

Deportivo de La Coruna vs SD Eibar Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Deportivo welcome Eibar to the Riazor looking to haul themselves out of La Liga’s relegation zone

Deportivo and Eibar had very different results in the midweek round of La Liga fixtures, and they have very different ambitions for the remainder of this season. Depor were summarily dispatched 3-0 at Getafe on Wednesday, while Los Armeros beat Villarreal to close within three points of their fellow European-chasing rivals.

Deportivo are 17/10 to pick up a first win under Seedorf, with the bookies making them ever so slight favourites for the game. Los Branquiazuis are languishing in the relegation zone, and they need to start picking up some points if they want to overhaul Las Palmas and Levante.

Eibar are 9/5 to secure another big three points, as they go in hunt of what would be a hugely impressive Europa League place. Jose Luis Mendilibar’s side have shown consistent improvement since arriving at the top table of Spanish football, and their fans would love to take the burgeoning party out onto the continent.

The draw is 12/5, which would be a third stalemate between the teams in the last five meetings. A repeat of the goalless draw they played out earlier this term is priced at 10/1, while a 1-1 scoreline has the shortest odds of any result at 6/1.

Deportivo have struggled for goals all season, but at least forwards Florin Andone, Adrian and Lucas Perez are spreading the goals between them. They have six, five and four this season respectively, and are 13/2, 9/1 and 17/2 to break the deadlock on Saturday.

Brazilian Charles is Eibar’s top scorer in La Liga with six goals from 20 games, and he’s available at 13/2 in the first goalscorer market. He’s 23/10 to net anytime, and 10/3 to score in an away victory.

Predicted Score: Deportivo de La Coruna 0 - 1 SD Eibar
