Deportivo is tied with Barcelona and Real Sociedad as the second most in form team in Primera Division and they need to keep the streak going. Six teams are contending for a place in the Spanish first flight and three of them will miss their target, therefore the competition is as intense as it gets.
Match: Deportivo vs Atletico Madrid
Bet: Deportivo Double Chance
Odds: Pinnacle Sports 1.84
Deportivo would normally be the huge underdog in this confrontation against an opponent that has already secured a place in the Champions League. Anything short of a complete meltdown would see Atletico Madrid playing in the main European competition next season, which explains why the visitors are playing without pressure. Now that they have lost at home against Real Madrid, Atletico can forsake any dreams of finishing the season on the second place but there is no reason for bitter regrets.
The visitors are traveling to La Coruna without any motivation and although Falcao is expected to feature upfront, he is unlikely to play for the entire 90 min. He will probably be substituted in the second half to avoid an injury and to be fit to play in two weeks, when the team faces Barcelona. Interesting enough, Atletico Madrid will face both Deportivo and Celta Vigo in less than one week and by losing to one while winning against the other they could keep the scale in favor of one team or the other.
To say that Deportivo is playing the best football this season would be an understatement, as the team has extended its invincibility to six consecutive rounds. This is the steepest obstacle they need to overcome, but punters can rest assured that the hosts won’t lose and take the 1X bet with Pinnacle Sports.
