1X2 Tip: Away Win
Reason For Dep. La Coruna VS Atl. Madrid Betting Tips
Any lingering Atleti title hopes were dashed on Sunday by Barcelona’s win at the Vicente Calderon. However the recent level of performance has been pretty good and they should enough to come to the Riazor and win.
Depor are in the midst of a miserable run of form. They’ve gone 9 games without a win and have lost all of their last four. On Saturday they suffered a crushing 4-0 defeat away against Leganes, who have the worst goalscoring record in the division and that was enough for the board to dispense with coach Gaizka Garitano. They look set to be under caretaker charge here and the new boss is going to have a tough job on his hands in trying to guide this Depor side to safety.
They are 17th currently and have conceded 1.7 goals per game this term, which suggests this could be a good day for Atleti’s forwards. The Griezmann-Gameiro partnership is starting to deliver the goods and they have more than enough quality to really test this home defence, which will be low on confidence following their weekend display. Gameiro has done better on the road than at home of late with 5 goals in his last 3 away matches including a blistering 5 minute hat-trick in Atleti’s last away league game. Therefore backing Gameiro to score anytime at 13/10 could be worth a flutter here.
Atleti now face a battle with Real Sociedad, it would seem, to grab the final Champions League qualification spot. They have suffered some damaging away defeats this season but look to have turned a corner to some extent. They’ve not lost any of their 8 away games in 2017 and have won the last two, scoring four goals on each occasion. With Godin and Oblak back from injuries they should be better at the back now and they ought to have what it takes to beat a limited Depor side that is badly out of form.
Therefore backing Atletico Madrid to Win at 4/6 looks good here.
