Our football match prediction:
After dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with Villarreal, Atletico Madrid will be looking to return to winning ways in La Liga when they take on Deportivo La Coruna at Estadio Municipal de Riazor on Matchday 11. Los Rojiblancos are eight points behind league leaders Barcelona ahead of Saturday’s football game, meaning that they face a must-win situation against the Galician outfit. Diego Simeone’s troops are after their fourth away win of the season and it has to be noted that they are after their third consecutive clean sheet on the road. Deportivo, on the other hand, aim to move away from the danger zone, but seeing that los Rojiblancos do not suit the Galicians, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the capital club. You should bear in mind that Deportivo La Coruna recorded their last win over Atletico Madrid back in 2009.
Highlighted Player (Pedro Mosquera):
Born in A Coruna, Galicia on April 21, 1988 Pedro Mosquera is a Spanish midfielder who plays for Deportivo La Coruna. After finishing his youth career at Real Madrid, he started playing for RM Castilla at senior level and he made no less than 98 appearances for the club from 2006 to 2010. In the summer of 2010 Pedro Mosquera joined Getafe, but he played only 39 games for the capital club in the league. In 2012 he returned to Real Madrid B, scoring five goals in 58 appearances for the club in his second spell with the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium outfit. The 184-cm-tall midfielder then moved to Elche and after playing 25 games in La Liga for los Franjiverdes, he returned to La Coruna at the end of the 2014/2015 season, signing a deal with his boyhood club Deportivo. Pedro Mosquera has a contract with the Galician club which expires on June 30, 2021. His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as a defensive midfielder as well.
Highlighted Team (Atletico Madrid):
Atletico Madrid are a Spanish team that plays in Primera Division (La Liga). Los Rojiblancos or los Colchoneros play their home matches at Estadio Vicente Calderon, which holds up to 54,960 spectators. Atletico Madrid have won 10 La Liga titles, but they have yet to lift the European Cup (Champions League) trophy. Los Rojblancos have won 10 Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup) trophies and it has to be noted that they defeated their bitter local rivals Real Madrid in the 2012/2013 Spanish Cup final. The rivalry between the two capital clubs is pretty big and El Madrileno is regarded as one of the most exciting derbies in the world football. Atletico Madrid played two Champions League finals under Diego Simeone, but they failed to beat Real Madrid in the title games (2013/2014 and 2015/2016). However, the Argentine tactician helped Atletico Madrid win the La Liga trophy in 2014 and, no doubt, he is one of the most successful coaches in the history of the capital club.
