Date: Friday, 19 August, 2016
Start time: 21:00 UK
Deportivo La Coruna faces Eibar in the opening-game in Primera.
Deportivo La Coruna and Eibar will open the season with a game against each other. It looks that here we will see one really though 90 minutes for both of them. Deportivo is considered as a light favorite, which is explained by the home factor. There’s no doubts that “Riazor” will be on fire, waiting for the first win through the season. Home fans are “hungry” for wins and they will show their support to the local team. Deportivo made a really nice pre-season preparation and they recorded good results in the friendly matches. They started with 10:1 against Negreira, but after that Celta beat them (2:0). A week later Deportivo came back to the winning streak, after beating Racing Ferrol (0:2). In the next 5 friendlies, they didn’t concede a loss and this fact will improve their self-confidence.
Eibar recorded poor results, including 2 draws and 4 losses. Beside of that, they won 3 of the friendlies – against Real Union, Lekhwiya, and Osasuna. Last year Eibar made a big success in the first 10 rounds and these amazing results helped them to stay in Primera. In this season they will try something like that, but Deportivo will try to please their fans and to take these 3 points.
5 out of last 6 matches in each other finished with under 2.5 goals and it looks that this is superb chance for this streak to continue. At the same time, both teams have little problems with missing players. Probably Deportivo will be without Colak and Fajr, while Eibar won’t use Jota and Lejeune. The last one is 100% out of this game due to yellow cards.
Tip: Under 2.5 goals @ 3/5 (1.60) with Bet365
