FC Barcelona vs Deportivo La Coruna 12 December 2015: La Liga Preview and Predictions

Barcelona are back in action this weekend and although normally putting money on the Spanish giants in La Liga has no value, this match may be a game where the bookmakers have made mistakes and there is value. Leo Messi and his team will be at home this week and they will be playing a Delportivo, a team who has been doing surprisingly well in the league this season.

 FC Barcelona come of a bad midweek performance where they failed to win away from home in the Champions League. Although this result had very little impact, this team want to win every game and they will not be very pleased with a 1-1 draw. They will be even more concerned with how they played since they were not very convincing and as a result of this they will be desperate to put on a good performance at home this weekend. A few things will be troubling Barcelona this weekend and that will be injury scares to their key players in Neymar and Leo Messi. Although it is not confirmed whether they will play and the team will decide on match day, this side is very good and I think that they have what it takes to win either way.

Deportivo La Coruna have been playing some really good football this season and they will be pleased with the fact that they are sitting in sixth place in the La Liga table. This match is going to be very tough for them but in recent times they have exceeded many expectations and this was shown as they managed to get a point against both Sevilla and Atletico Madrid. This side has impressed me an I think that this match will be an easy win for the league leaders.

Barcelona will win this game and the odds show this clearly since they are at an insanely low price. That being said there is still value in this game. The handicap for this match is set at 3 goals and I think that is too high. Barcelona are a good team but their opposition have heart and I think that the result will be a 1-0 or 2-0 win to the defending champions. Betting on Delportivo +3 is a good bet in my opinion and there is value so it is where my money will be on.
