Competition: Spanish La Liga
Market: Barcelona to win against Deportivo
Odds: 2/7 @ Ladbrokes
Barcelona host Deportivo at the Nou Camp this weekend, with the Catalan giants and league champions looking to end the campaign on a high, while maintaining their impressive end of season unbeaten run. Luis Enrique has won back the division crown, and is on course to win the treble as things stand. Barca are in fantastic form ahead of a dead rubber tie by their standards, but Deportivo’s season is now boiling down to their result against the holders, as well as sides below them in the table.
Two points above the drop zone, but with an inferior goal difference, a draw may not be enough for Deportivo if 18th-placed Eibar win their game against already-relegated Cordoba. There’s a very good chance they do pick up three points against the side rock bottom in the table, so Deportivo are in real danger of the drop for the third time since 2011. They continue to yo-yo between the top two Spanish divisions, and have one of the worst away record s travelling to the Nou Camp on Saturday.
As a result, Ladbrokes are giving odds of 2/7 for Barcelona to come away with all three points, potentially sealing the fate for the 1999/2000 champions.
