A pair of teams right beside each other in the La Liga tables hoping to stay away from the relegation zone face off today at 3:30pm EST when Mallorca host Deportivo La Coruna.The 2nd leg of the fourth round in the Copa Del Rey is in gear today as Real Mallorca play host to Deportivo La Coruna in a match that is widely expected to be close given the inconsistent performances of both clubs and their proximity to each in the La Liga standings.
Mallorca currently sit in 16th place in the table with a record of 3-7-3 (W-L-T). Right below them only a point away is Deportivo La Coruna with 11 points from 13 matches and that will not change as this is obviously a cup tilt.
With both teams realistically having no chance of rising high enough to make Europe for next season they will focus their energies on going as far as they can in the Copa Del Rey and most of the regulars are listed in each starting eleven, including Mexican international Giovani Dos Santos for Mallorca.
The hosts have three wins in six matches at home during league play and were able to net a crucial away goal in the 1st leg of the series back on Nov 1st when Pedro Tunon Geromel scored with 13 minutes left.
With Deportivo having yet to win on the road this year, Mallorca are naturally slight favourites with odds of 1.86 being offered at Uwin.com.
The draw result which is a high possibility can be taken at 3.40.
Expect Deportivo to come out gunning for a goal given the away goal rule and should they end up coming through on the road they would pay 3.90. The draw no bet result for a Deportivo pick is listed at 2.98.
The over/under sees payouts of 1.94 for the over 2.5 and the under is at 1.77, so bookies expect a tight and conservative result. If the 1-1 result of their last leg holds true again then the odds for that correct score are presently at 6.05.
