DID YOU KNOW?

  • On-loan Ruben Perez of ‘Super Depor’ is not allowed play against his owners Atleti. His importance for Deportivo can be judged by the fact that Deportivo have failed to score in all five matches that he has not figured.
  • Deportivo La Coruna have a superb recent home record as they have collected 13 points out of possible 21.
  • “Super Depor” have one of the worst scoring records in La Liga having failed to score in 18 games out of 33 games.
  • Sergio ‘Kun’ Aguero is on a red hot streak right now and after netting against Levante, he has scored in 6 consecutive matches. With this he equalled Pedro’s record and is one step away from equalling Forlan’s record of scoring in seven consecutive games.
  • Atletico Madrid do not have a very good record at the “Riazor’ as they have collected only eight points out of a possible 39 in their last few visits.
  • Los colchoneros have only lost one of their last 10 league games and this has brought them back firmly into contention for European spots.

Players to watch

Adrián

Position: Attacker

Games: 0

  • 0
  • 0
  • 0

Adrian has scored five goals and assisted another five. It might not seem like much, but that is more than 33% of the goals that Depor have scored this season in La Liga. Atletico will most probably score and for Deportivo to stay up, they need Adrian to fire more than ever.

S. Agüero

Position: Attacker

Games: 0

  • 0
  • 0
  • 0

With the start of the second half of the season, Aguero has become the nightmare of defenders in La liga. With eight goals in seven matches he has been vital in Atletico’s push for Europe and despite a relatively easy run in, it is vital that he retains his scoring touch.

Editor's Prediction

Deportivo have a magnificent recent home record and and Atletico traditionally have not done too well at the Riazor. With Aguero in top form and Deportivo in short supply of goals a low scoring draw seems likely.
