Deportivo La Coruna host Getafe on Estadio Riazor for an interesting La Liga clash that sees the hosts unable to win against Getafe at home for over 7 years. The visitors are on the 12th place in the table, Deportivo on the 16th, but the two teams are separated by just two points. If you look by the last head to head results, as well as the match against Atletico Madrid someone has the chance to be sent off.
Deportivo started the year with bad results, but then picked up form to the point where they managed to beat Valencia with 3-0. The most recent result is a 0-0 draw against Espanyol, but Victor Fernandez was satisfied with the way his team performed. The only doubts the team has for the match are Lucas Perez, who picked up a knee injury against Espanyol but trained normally with the team, and Helder Postiga, whose fitness is still to be assessed. Salomao is yet to receive the ok from the doctors to play, so he is training separately.
Getafe’s latest result is a 0-1 defeat at the hands of Atletico Madrid. The champions dominated the match from the very start, and Alexis got a red card for hitting Mandzukic in the face, yet the hosts were the more dangerous side, and just unlucky not to score the equalizer. Cosmin Contra’s team lost the first four matches out of five, and then picked up enough speed that positioned them on the 12th place with 10 points after nine match days. Arroyo and Vazquez are sidelined with knee and a shoulder injury while Michel Herrero is under doubt.
Deportivo will push for a win, while Getafe will look forward to continuing their unbeaten five match run at Riazor. Unibet favors Deportivo to win and gives them 2.05 odds, and Getafe got 3.90.
