Deportivo doesn’t show that impressive results in recent season like they did in the beginning of century. Former Champions League regular spend most of their time in the mid-table of Spanish Primera and even got relegated not that long ago. The team finished previous season on 15th position with 42 points. The hosts of the match played seven sparring this summer, taking five wins, two draws and one defeat. Deportivo signed up Florian Andone this summer and hope the footballer will become their leader this season. Deportivo finished last season with four home defeats in a row with 1-15 on aggregate.

Eibar finished previous season one place ahead of today’s hosts, on 14th place with 43 points in 38 matches. The team had intensive pre-season, taking part in 12 club friendlies. However, they managed to win only three of them, drew five and lost four friendlies. As to the away record of the team, the most recent away win was taken back in the beginning of January. Following 11 games on the road got the team only two draws and nine defeats.
Deportivo avoid defeats in their last five head-to-heads with Eibar, taking three wins and drawing ither two matches. Considering this record together with awful away results of Eibar, we can say that the hosting side gets impressive opportunity to end their disappointing streak at home and take victory on the opening match of the season.
Prediction for the match: Deportivo to win.
