Our match prediction:
Estadio Municipal de Riazor will host Monday’s game between Deportivo La Coruna and Las Palmas. With only one point separating the two teams in the La Liga standings, there is every chance we will see a close encounter in Galicia. Victor Sanchez’s men head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Celta Vigo in the local derby and you should have in mind that los Branquiazuis failed to keep a clean sheet in previous sixteen games in all competitions. Las Palmas, on the other hand, moved one step closer to securing the top flight survival at the weekend, with the team beating Valencia in front of home fans. Los Amarillos recorded five wins in last six league games and we predict that the visitors will grab something from Monday’s mid-table clash. When the two sides met at Estadio de Gran Canaria Deportivo recorded a 2-0 win over Las Palmas, but the newcomers were totally out of form back then.
