Betting tips and match preview | La Liga Primera

Deportivo are one of a number of sides in La Liga who are in desperate need of a win but despite extending their winless streak to six matches they still find themselves well placed to finish in the top six. If they were to finalise a first win in seven in this match it could go a long way to piecing together a run that could see them challenge for European football at the Riazor next season.
They have taken four points from their last six matches, they have proved exceptionally hard to beat with four consecutive draws but they must start producing enough in the performances to win those tight matches, if they had done their league position could be far better but as it stands they are still a great chance.
