Our football match prediction:
Villarreal were more than fortunate to pick up one point from Sunday’s football game against Barcelona. The Catalan giants failed to turn their dominance into more goals (1-1), but thanks to the draw with Luis Enrique’s men the Yellow Submarine extended their unbeaten run in the league to four games. Villarreal aim to retain to top four in the La Liga standings and they are certainly capable of beating Deportivo La Coruna at Estadio Municipal de Riazor. Fran Escriba’s team outplayed Sporting Gijon in their last away game in the Spanish top flight, but they recorded only one victory in previous six matches on the road. Deportivo La Coruna played out a 1-1 draw with Espanyol in Catalonia and they are eyeing their third straight win at home. Seeing that both teams will go for a win in Saturday’s clash, we predict that both Deportivo and Villarreal will find the net in the Estadio Municipal de Riazor game.
