After a three-game losing streak in the Spanish top flight, the Blues and Whites will hope to get back to winning ways on their turf

Estadio Municipal de Riazor will welcome Espanyol for their Primera Division match-day 25 duel against Deportivo La Coruna on Friday night.

Clarence Seedorf's recent appointment hasn't produced the desired results. However, the Dutch legend is hopeful to pull things back. A drop to the second tier might be unavoidable as there are 14 league games left this season.

Depor have two very capable forwards in the shape of Lucas Perez and Florin Andone whose qualities can spell doom for the men from Catalonia. 75% of the Galicians' home games has seen them find the back of the net this seasion. Bet9ja quoted a price of (2.42) for them as favourites. 

On the other hand, Quique Sanchez Flores' side have claimed 10 points from the last four league ties. Nonetheless, they have still lost on three of their last five trips to the Riazor overall and an offer for punters is available at (3.05) for the visitors to stun the hosts.

Seeing to it that the encounter ends after 90 minutes in a stalemate is priced at a chunky (3.20).

Both teams have found the back of the net in their last four games with different clubs. So, the presence of Lucas Perez and Florin Andone for the home team with the away squad's reliable striker in the shape of Gerard Moreno is convincing enough for them to score each other at odds of (1.83).

Just three of the last eight home games for Deportivo has witnessed under 2.5 goals. Also, three of Espanyol's last five away matches in all competitions have produced under 2.5 goals.

 The same betting firm is offering (1.67) to willing punters for less than two goals to surface in A Coruna.

A decent bet is offered at (3.25) with Bet9ja for punters to back Moreno, who has reached double figures for the second season running in La Liga for the White and Blue outfit, to score anytime.
