Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Deportivo La Coruna play host to Malaga at their Estadio Abanca-Riazor in the first leg of the Segunda Division play-offs. The Galicians recorded a routine 2-0 win over Cordoba on the last day of the regular season, with the team clinching their spot in the play-offs. Deportivo are a real force to be reckoned with at home and despite the fact that Malaga finished the regular part of the season in third position in the standings, we believe that home win should be considered.
Los Boquerones, on the other hand, are on a five-game winning run in the Spanish second tier, but they will have a big fish to fry in Wednesday’s football match against Jose Marti’s troops. Deportivo La Coruna fans are likely to pack the stadium and that is the main reason why we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Galician team, who are desperate to return to Primera Division.
