Deportivo La Coruna vs Athletic Bilbao
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 11 September 2016,
Kick-Off: 01:30 GMT+7
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Riazor, A Coruna.

Athletic Bilbao visit a Deportivo La Coruna side that has made a very bright start to the new La Liga season. Our betting tips suggest there will be a few goals in this game but there may be little to split the sides come full-time.

Reason For Betting Tips

The bookies make the hosts slight favourites on the back of their impressive form so far. Deportivo are 6th in the league and have only been defeated once so far this term and have taken 10 points from their last 5 fixtures.

Victor Sanchez has performed a minor miracle at the Riazor and they should have more than enough to steer clear of trouble this year, which would be a success given they were in danger of becoming Spanish football’s yo-yo club after a series of recent relegations and promotions.

While Depor fans will be more than happy with the start they have made, Athletic supporters will be anything but and already there is a sense of deja-vu in the Basque Country after the club made an awful start to last season too.

However things took a step in the right direction last time out when they beat Valencia 3-1 at San Mames thanks to an excellent comeback and even though there has been a long international break, the side should carry some confidence into this game, despite a tally of just 7 points from 7 games so far. Athletic aren’t the sort of side to sit back and play for a point on the road and they will come here looking for another win against a Deportivo side that will fancy their chances of doing likewise.

The result should be a relatively attacking game. Both teams have scored in 4 of the last 5 games involving Athletic Bilbao, while 5 of Deportivo’s 7 matches this term have seen both teams net. The hosts have the joint 3rd best attack in the league and therefore backing both teams to score in this one at 10/11 looks like the smart bet.

It is hard to call a winner though. The visitors are coming in off their best league performance of the season and will be hopeful of a return to their impressive form from the 2nd half of last season. Deportivo are a much improved side and it is hard to see them losing this so consider backing it to finish 1-1 at 5/1.
