Real Sociedad vs Dep. La Coruna Prediction & Betting tips
The twenty-second round in La Liga opens on Friday evening with the meeting between Real Sociedad and Deportivo La Coruna in the Anoeta. Both teams are working on a huge disappointing season and yearning for a victory.
Real Sociedad :
With an anonymous fifteenth place, Real Sociedad is in a very disappointing season. Last weekend the Basques went to visit Villarrel 4-2 in the boat, which again meant the fourth loss in a row.
For the time being, the poison cup seems not empty, because Real Sociedad became indirectly the victim of Manchester City’s spree drift. The British picked up for a whopping 65 million euros in Aymeric Laporte at Athletic Bilbao, who in turn knocked in to take Inigo Martinez from the blue whites. Since Athletic Bilbao met the transfer clause with 32 million euros, Real Sociedad could not refuse the bid of its arch rival.
The clubkas is indeed well spotted, but with Inigo Martinez, La Real lost by far her best defender. The defense of the Basques is with no less than forty goals in 21 rounds anyway the problem child of trainer Eusebio, but without Inigo Martinez the numbers are completely crying. With Inigo Martinez within the lines, Real Sociedad got an average of 1.57 opponents per match this season. That average is actually already too high for a team with European ambitions, but without the mandrel this average rises to no less than 2.17 opponents per game!
It is clear that his departure means a huge loss for the team of trainer Eusebio. The coach may well be the child of the bill, because according to Marca he has been given an ultimatum by the board. According to the Spanish sports newspaper, he will be fired if Friday night is not won from Deportivo La Coruna.
Dep. La Coruna :
Dark clouds gather above the Riazor. The Galicians are now six games without victory and have to be in eighth place in the rankings for relegation. Remarkably, the blues have never managed to win in January in the past three years. Last weekend, the team took a 2-0 lead against direct competitor Levante and seemed to finally be able to count on its January-curse, but in the last ten minutes it went completely wrong: 2-2. “The changing room has been switched on,” says trainer Cristobal Parallo.
Deportivo La Coruna can, however, breathe a sigh of relief, because the away match against Real Sociedad is on the program for 2 February. That certainly does not mean that the Galicians are now suddenly out of the worries, because the team of Parallo is badly battered this weekend. With the club top scorer Florin Andone and midfielder Celso Borges (both suspended), the coach has to miss two of his best players. In addition, midfielder Pedro Mosquera has a basic player in the rag basket and defender Fabian Schär is not completely fit. It will therefore be quite a job for Parallo to put together a representative team on Friday evening. The first choice is largely lacking for this level, so let alone what the second choice has to look for in La Liga …
