Deportivo La Coruna: After three clean sheets ( Recent Form: D L W D W )
The kickers from the north commuted between the seventh and sixth rank in recent weeks. A Vabanquespiel that the trailer strained annoying bad, but in the end it was enough for the promotion playoffs. In this context, among other things, the change on the coaching position paid off last April. Since 44-year-old Josep Lluis Marti took the job, it has been slightly uphill. With five wins and two draws and three bankruptcies, he has no over-balance on, but the now insecure team has stabilized in recent weeks. Especially the recent games against direct competitors in the fight for the playoffs were fairly successful. Thus, the Branquiazuis drew against the seventh from Cadiz and the fifth of the final table, RCD Mallorca, was defeated. Furthermore, La Coruna was not disturbed by the betting scandal in Spain in recent weeks. After all, the club with the defender Inigho Lopez one of the arrested main suspects in their own ranks. The 36-year-old completed only a brief stint this season following his move to the winter break of Extremadura UD, but the excitement surrounding the ongoing investigation could well have had a negative impact on the Elf from Galicia. On the offensive, the hopes of Deportivo are otherwise mainly on the striker Quique. The 29-year-old was signed by CA Osasuna last summer and with 16 goals, he was the second-best scorer in the Spanish lower house. The Turcos of captain Álex Bergantiños can also draw on full staff, since none of the candidates for the starting eleven and from among the most important bankers is injured.
Malaga: Five wins in a row ( Recent Form: W W W W W )
For the Malaguistas it was after the last season as bottom of the table in La Liga 2, which ten years in the Beletage of Spanish football came to an end. But there is legitimate hope for the resurgence. The last few weeks have given the fans of Malaga a lot of confidence before: No other team was more successful in the final spurt of the league than the Albicelestes. One reason for the upturn is unquestionably the recent change of coach to La Coruna. Two months ago, Victor Sanchez inherited the 50-year-old Juan Muniz, who coached Malaga three times in his coaching career. Since Sanchez is at the helm, the shape curve is clearly up. His record includes six wins and one bankruptcy and one draw. It is also pleasing from Malaga's point of view that striker Blanco is on board again after serving his card suspension last weekend. This is an important news for the Boquerones, as the Argentinian, who was signed before the season of Shakhtar Donezk, is the second-best scorer on the Malaga CF after Spanish midfielder Adrian Gonzales. In addition, in the match against La Coruna the Elf will rely on their away strength. After all, only five appearances were lost during the season - a performance that otherwise only Granada has. Furthermore, the personal situation on the defensive has eased. In addition to Captain Federico Ricca now Juan Carlos is available again, which was missing for many months due to injury.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, Malaga was the second strongest away team in La Liga 2 and the team of coach Victor Sanchez has the second best defensive away. Likewise, the Andalusians presented themselves in recent weeks more in comparison to the home side. Five wins in the last five rounds, including against the fourth of the table from Albacete, prove this impressively. In addition, the interim injury concerns with the Boquerones have decreased again. At La Coruna against Malaga, the tip therefore sees the double chance for the guests. Last but not least, the prognosis points to the fact that the guests will certainly be able to live well with an away margin in the first leg and thus will not play for victory unconditionally.
