Our match prediction:
After failing to impress in a 1-0 loss to Espanyol at the weekend, Deportivo La Coruna will be aiming to record their first win in La Liga since 19 December when they take on rock-bottom Granada at their Estadio Municipal de Riazor. Los Brancoazuis are eager to overcome the crisis and it remains to be seen if they are capable of putting an end to their 11-game winless run in all competitions. Anyhow, given that Victor Sanchez’s men have been misfiring of late, we are not tempted to put our money on the hosts. Granada have been struggling to find their form in recent weeks as well; los Granadinos are on a four-game losing run in the league and, taking everything into account, we predict that the two teams will play out a goalless draw on Sunday evening. The two sides shared the spoils in the reverse fixture (1-1).
