Our football match prediction:
Wednesday’s football game at Estadio Municipal de Riazor pits together Deportivo La Coruna and Real Madrid. The Galicians aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Real Sociedad, while los Blancos are eager to recover from a heartbreaking defeat to Barca in El Clasico. Zinedine Zidane’s men dropped to second place in the La Liga standings, but it is well known that they have one game in hand. Real Madrid need to get back on course as soon as possible if they are to regain the domestic trophy and we predict that the Spanish giants will go all guns blazing at Deportivo on Wednesday evening. The Galician club are tough to beat at home, but given the importance of the match for the visitors, away win should be considered. Cristiano Ronaldo failed to impress in the 3-2 loss to Barcelona, but he is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders.
