Deportivo La Coruna – Barcelona
Deportivo La Coruna faces Barcelona in a game from the 35th round of the Spanish La Liga. Let’s have a look at this match at the Estadio Riazor in La Coruna.
Barcelona need just one point from this game to become champion. They could even do it without playing, if Atletico Madrid makes a mistake against Deportivo Alaves before that. One thing is for sure – Barca are going to be champions. The only quesiton is when.
So far Barcelona are unbeaten in La Liga – 25 wins and 8 draws from 33 games played. They have 83 points won so far and they are dominating the league since the season began. They deserve to be champions and they will be.
In their last five matches Barcelona won three times and made two draws. In this period of time, they lost points only against Sevilla and Celta – both matches ended with 2-2 draws.
Of course, Barcelona are still hurt by the way they were eliminated from the Champions League by Roma. It was a shocking performance by the Catalans, who didn’t look like themselves against the Italian team. Ernesto Valverde took a lot of criticism because of this performance, but soon after this Los Cules won Copa del Rey with a magnificent 5-0 win over Sevilla in the final.
Deportivo La Coruna on the other hand are very close to relegation. They are 18th in the league with 28 points and trailing on 11 points behind the 17th Espanyol. It’s clear now that Clarence Seedorf’s team won’t be able to save itself. Deportivo will play in Segunda Division next season.
In their last five matches Deportivo have some positive results, winning twice, doing two draws and losing only once. But it’s going going to be enough for them.
This is our take on the La Liga game between Deportivo La Coruna and Barcelona.
