The first match of the 22nd round of the Spanish Primera Division encounter two teams in completely opposite positions in the standings, but with close points. Deportivo La Coruna takes the 14th position with a total of 21 points, while SD Eibar are eighth with 27 points collected. Both teams won their participation in the Primera Division after they finished first and second in the Segunda Division. The odds for the game offered by the leading bookmaker bet365 are as follows: 2.15 for a home win, with a draw at 3.25 and 3.60 for the victory of the guests. Deportivo and Eibar already played against each other in the autumn, when La Coruna won as a guest with minimum 0-1. Their last meeting here finished with a draw of 1-1 and in 2013 SD Eibar took the victory with 2-1. The two teams are new to the league, but it is Deportivo with far more experience here and that is why their victory is considered as a likely outcome of the meeting.
Deportivo La Coruna must urgently begin to earn points, because although on the 14th position, the team is very close to the danger zone. In the last round the players of Victor Fernandez won three points against Rayo Vallecano, but very difficult and a penalty at the end of the second half. One of the main strikers of the team Helder Postiga still not recovered from injury and midfielder Luis Farina is punished. The new arrival of Deportivo - Celso Borges was marked by good game against Rayo Vallecano, where he scored both goals. Oriol Riera is another new player in the team and he will probably replace the injured Postiga.
SD Eibar made a surprisingly strong performance in the league. They managed to stay in the top half of the table. However, from the New Year there is a crisis in the team and for three consecutive rounds SD Eibar has no victory, recording a draw and two defeats in a row. Gaizka Garitano can`t be able to rely on Manuel de Mora, which is with surgery, but basically this is the only problem player on the team.
We expect interesting and equivalent match in which the visitors have to win.
Prediction Deportivo La Coruna - SD Eibar: 2
Odds: 3.60 at bet365
