Competition: Segunda play-off
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 11/10 @ Bet 365
Playing out a six-goal thriller when the two sides met in midweek, Malaga will welcome Deportivo La Coruna to the Estadio La Rosaleda on Saturday night.
Starting with the hosts, after shipping four in the first-leg away at the Estadio Abanca-Riazor on Wednesday, Head Coach Víctor Sánchez will know his side must be at their best if they’re to turnaround their deficit this weekend. Despite their surprise defeat on the road in midweek, the Blue and Whites have continued to shine in the final third and have now managed to find the net on two or more occasions in each of their previous five outings. Also now very impressively registering nine strikes in just their last three appearances on home soil, the Malaga camp will still be believing they can secure a spot in next week’s play-off final.
As for the visitors, after putting in another impressive display in midweek and holding a real advantage on Saturday, Deportivo are enjoying a stellar end to the year. Unbeaten in their last four and tasting defeat just once since the middle of April, one man to watch will be leading goalscorer, Quique. Bagging 16 Segunda goals this season, the 29-year-old also finished the year second in the overall striking charts in Spain’s second-tier. With six of the last eight meetings between the two sides seeing both teams find the net, we’re backing another lively encounter in Malaga this weekend.
