Valencia look to make it five wins from six when they take on Deportivo La Coruna. The Mestalla has been a fortress for Valencia with just one loss on the season a 1-0 loss to Barcelona with a 93rd minute Busquets winner. Valencia are one of the form teams in the league with six wins from their last eight games and they will fancy their chances against a struggling Deportivo side on Friday night. Valencia have struggled to get goals at times but with Piatti and Negredo they seem to have come upon a partnership that will work. Valencia to me are one of the bankers of the weekend but at the prices quoted I will be looking to go smaller on the handicap.
Deportivo are in shocking form and have lost three of their last four. They are in real danger of slipping into the relegation zone though will be fighting tooth and nail to try to avoid that. Reliant on Toche, Perez and Riera for goals the side has struggled majorly this season and have scored the fourth least in the league this season.
I cant see anything but a comfortable Valencia win here and I am going to take Valencia -1 on the handicap and will spread a little on Valencia -2 as I think they may end up winning this one 3 or4 nil.
