Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Tuesday’s football game at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero pits together Elche and Deportivo La Coruna, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the season finale. Elche are eyeing promotion to La Liga, while Deportivo are eager to secure the Segunda Division survival. Los Franjiverdes proved their worth in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Girona, with Daniel Esriche scoring the only goal of the match, but they should not stop now.
Elche are eight points behind automatic promotion places, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win situation for them. The Galicians, on the other hand, played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Rayo Vallecano at the weekend. Deportivo La Coruna obviously struggle at the back, and seeing that important defender Peru Nolaskoain misses the Elche game through injury, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
