Preview:
Deportivo La Coruña and Villarreal meet at Estadio Municipal de Riazor, in a match for the 18th round of the Primera División. In the last 3 years these teams met twice: the earliest head‑to‑head was played on 02‑05‑2015 and ended in a (1‑1) draw, and the latest on 21‑12‑2014, which ended in a (3‑0) win by Villarreal. Villarreal registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

Analysis of Deportivo La Coruña

The home team is currently in the 6th position of the league, with 27 points won, after 6 wins, 9 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Eibar, by (2‑0). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Getafe, by (0‑0). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 7 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 16 goals scored and 13 conceded; against 5 wins, 8 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 22 goals scored and 14 conceded. In the last 8 home league matches Deportivo La Coruña has a record of 3 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss, so they have won 13 points out of 24 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 6 home matches. The most recurrent result at half‑time in their home league matches was the 1‑0 (3 out of 8 matches). Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 17 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 9 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 5 of their 14 goals between minutes (16'‑30').

Deportivo is going through a very positive moment of the season and currently boasts eight consecutive games, for the championship, without losing. In this game versus a strong opponent, it is foreseeable that coach Víctor Sánchez plays to his best style, which is showing consistency in defence, and danger in counter-attack. It is important to highlight that Cartabia and Lucas Pérez are very important in this kind of transition due to their speed and technical quality in carrying the ball. Besides, Lucas Pérez is the best finisher for Depor, with 12 scored goals thus far. Fabri and Celso Borges are out due to injury.

Confirmed Lineup: G. Lux, Alejandro Arribas, Sidnei, Fernando Navarro, Juanfran, F. Fajr, F. Cartabia, Luis Alberto, Pedro Mosquera, Álex Bergantiños, Lucas Pérez.
Coach: Víctor Sánchez.

Analysis of Villarreal

The away team is currently in the 4th position of the league, with 33 points won, after 10 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Real Sociedad, by (0‑2). In the last match, they won in a home match against Valencia, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 19 goals scored and 18 conceded; against 13 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss at their stadium, with 26 goals scored and 8 conceded. In the last 8 away league matches Villarreal has a record of 3 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 11 points out of 24 possible. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (5 out of 8 matches). Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 6 of the last 8 matches for this competition have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 17 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 2.

After the great triumph by 1-0 against Real Madrid, Villareal got back on track and conquered three more victories in official matches, which shows the great form of the visiting team: victories against Valencia, Real Sociedad and Huesca. Thus, the great objective of the “yellow submarine” is to keep on the victory track. To do that, the team should play in a medium-high block in order to force the opponent’s mistake in the first phase of construction. However, it is important to highlight that Villareal uses preferably the left flank to attack the opponent, thanks to the good teamwork between the lateral defender Mario Gaspar and the right midfielder Jonathan dos Santos. Also, Bakambu has revealed great quality in shooting at goal, already counting ten goals this season. Jokic and Adrián López are unavailable for this game due to injury.

Confirmed Lineup: A. Areola, M. Musacchio, Mario Gaspar, Víctor Ruíz, A. Rukavina, J. dos Santos, Denis Suárez, Tomás Pina, Bruno, C. Bakambu, Soldado.
Coach: Marcelino.

Betting suggestion:

This match places head to head two very similar teams, but with different styles of play. However, both teams are currently in great form and it is thus expected a well-balanced game, with a few moments of little spectacle. This way, it is foreseeable that the home factor will weight on the final decisions of this match, and so we believe that the scoreboard will be favorable to the Deportivo squad at the end of the match.
