17/03/2018 Kick Off:  12:00 pm Riazor V Predicted Score:0 - 0

Away UD Las Palmas

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Under 1.5 goals at 7/2. Between them Depor and Las Palmas have only managed 45 goals in 56 games so far and even though they have struggling defences, there’s no guarantee either side has a strong enough attack to take advantage. It stands out as one of the more promising football predictions for today.

2 We fancy:

Half time/full time draw/draw at 11/2. There’s so little between two of La Liga’s poorest sides that they could probably play for 90 hours and still struggle to pull away from each other.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Over 4.5 goals at 9/2. Not the longest odds, but a long shot. That said, they did play out a 4-1 and a 3-2 just a few months back, so maybe there’s some magical chemistry between these two teams that means they suddenly remember how to attack – if not defend – when they meet.

Team News

Deportivo de La Coruna's Last Six:

Won: 0 Drawn: 2 Lost: 4

Michael Krohn-Dehli, Luisinho, Fede Cartabia and Guilherme are all named on the Deportivo injury list, and none of them are guaranteed to return by Saturday.

UD Las Palmas' Last Six:

Won: 0 Drawn: 3 Lost: 3

Las Palmas have their share of injuries too and Alejandro Galvez is banned, but Emmanuel Emenike could return from a knee injury to bolster the attack.

Deportivo de La Coruna vs UD Las Palmas Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

The Riazor will be hosting Segunda football if results don’t improve soon

If football predictions allowed for both teams to lose then that’d be a distinct possibility here as two teams in rotten form meet. Deportivo haven’t won a league game since early December, despite drafting in the legendary Seedorf as coach. Indeed, one Spanish publication has noted how Depor seem to get worse with each new manager.

Las Palmas have at least won in this calendar year but that was still more than a month ago and any football betting tips for the weekend would probably advise against supporting the islanders, even with buccaneering boss Paco Jemez on the bench. Las Palmas might still go down, but they’ll at least go down in a blaze of glory.

Chances are both teams will be out of consideration for La Liga predictions next season with the second tier beckoning, with Depor five points from safety and Las Palmas four, and neither of them showing anything to suggest they’ll escape the drop.

Depor are a best price of 5/6 to take a much-needed and long-awaited three points but they are among the lowest scoring sides in La Liga – down there with Las Palmas, among others – so any football score predictions should take that into account too.

Las Palmas are available at around 7/2 but a best price of 79/20 for an away win that’d put pressure on Levante, who are currently outside the bottom three by the skin of their teeth. It’d be their first league victory on the mainland since September, when they helped Malaga to the bottom of the table with a 3-1 reverse.

The draw is 37/13 and if that is the outcome it’s more likely to be a case of two poor teams unable to get their act together than anything else. All the free football betting tips in the world would find it difficult to separate these two teams.

Predicted Score: Deportivo de La Coruna 0 - 0 UD Las Palmas
