Deportivo vs Barcelona: Catalan giants to take title in style

Deportivo vs Barcelona: Catalan giants to take title in style

Kick Off: 1945, 29/04/2018

Stadium: Municipal de Riazor

TV: Sky Sports

Following last week’s Copa del Rey final romp against Sevilla, Barcelona can now wrap up a 25th LaLiga title by beating Deportivo at Riazor.

The Catalan giants suffered a surprise defeat at this venue last season but gained revenge with a 4-0 triumph at Camp Nou in December.

Paulinho bagged a brace in that match and could be value at 3/2 to score at anytime again in our Deportivo vs Barcelona betting predictions.

A Look At Deportivo La Coruna’s Betting Odds

Deportivo are unbeaten in their last four LaLiga games, but it all looks a case of too little, too little as they appear doomed to relegation.

Hopes of a great escape were raised by back-to-back 3-2 wins over Malaga and Athletic Bilbao, but goalless draws versus Sevilla and Leganes quickly burst that bubble.

Clarence Seedorf has instilled some fighting spirit since his arrival in February, but Deportivo lack the creative flair to challenge the big boys in Spain.

They have suffered five straight defeats against the top three in the table, conceding 15 times in those matches and scoring only once.

Looking at the Deportivo vs Barcelona odds, those figures make 35/4 for a 3-0 away win the percentage pick.

A Look At FC Barcelona’s Betting Odds

Barcelona still have plenty to play for in the last few weeks of the season, notably trying to become the first team to go through a LaLiga campaign unbeaten in 86 years.

The Champions League meltdown away to Roma remains a blot on this copybook campaign, but Jordi Alba summed up the mood after last week’s 5-0 drubbing of Sevilla.

“We’re having a great season, we’d all have settled for the league and cup double,” the defender told the club website. “Valverde is a great coach and the whole team are right behind him.”

Barca will be keen to put some sloppy away performances behind them, with 2-2 draws at Sevilla and Celta Vigo coming either side of the botched Italian job.

Let’s finish off our Deportivo vs Barcelona betting tips by taking 16/1 for Lionel Messi to strike first in a 3-0 triumph.

The Argentina ace is five clear of Cristiano Ronaldo in the Golden Boot race and six ahead of teammate Luis Suarez.
