Deportivo la Coruna welcome the visitors Almeria in the Spanish La Liga 2 – Round 31. The match will be held on Friday, March, 22nd, at the Estadio Municipal de Riazor (La Coruna).
Only last of Deportivo la Coruna’s recent 5 fixtures saw them win. Before, the team registered 3 draws and 1 defeat (to Las Palmas). This unsuccessful run drove the hosts back to the 4th place. Now they sit 5 points off the 2nd tier that provides for an automatic promotion to the elite division.

2 rounds back, Almeria broke their 4-match winning streak by a loss to Sporting Gijon, but in the last encounter, they drawed against the vice-leaders Granada. The visitors are presently 9th in the standings, running 4 points behind the playoff spot that gives a chance for progression. Still, there are 12 more fixtures to play, so, the handicap is very doable within this time, unless it is increased though.
Well, it is very possible that Almeria will increase their point deficit tomorrow. Despite the bad-luck series, Deportivo are still among the table toppers and main Primeira claimers. Also, they present one of the strongest homesides in the league. On their soil, Deportivo attained 8 wins and suffered 1 loss in 15 encounters, which is fourth-best division’s record.
On Almeria’s side, the opponents ended level this campaign. Now the hosts will not be fine with a draw. If they register a stalemate tomorrow, they will have to solidify their top-six place instead of catching up with the 2 heavyweights – not the best prospect indeed. Deportivo were winless against Almeria in 4 recent head-to-heads, so, the coming clash might be a good opportunity to register a victory. The hosts’ squad are more powerful and better-knit. They demonstrate a rather confident performance in front of their fans, while Almeria lost in 5 outings, including the one but last to Сordoba. Their previous trip was also losing. The homeside will not feature an easy win, but they will play their best to end victors. Going by the opponents’ record, Deportivo will overcome the guests.
Prediction for the match: Deportivo la Coruna to win home.
