Sevilla vs Deportivo La Coruna predictions-While there are some obvious flaws in this Sevilla team, particularly at the back, they are still having a pretty good season, continuing to challenge at home and abroad. They will have one eye on their decisive final Champions League group game against Maribor in midweek but will be hungry for three points here and should get them against a Depor side that is weak at the back.
It’s a game that should deliver several goals. Sevilla may rotate their team slightly but they do have plenty of attacking options in reserve and one of the biggest squads in La Liga. They had the likes of Nolito, Jesus Navas and Ben Yedder on the bench last weekend as they staged another rousing comeback to come from 2-0 down and win 3-2 at Villarreal.
Assistant boss Ernesto Marcucci is likely to be in charge here with Eduardo Berizzo having undergone surgery this week and he will send his side out to try and boss this game. Sevilla have been scoring plenty of goals of late with 2 or more scored in 7 of their last 8 matches in all competitions. Their recent matches have been full of drama with all of their last 10 competitive games seeing over 2.5 goals scored in total.
Depor matches have also tended to be high-scoring affairs. 77% of their league games this term and 83% of their away matches have produced over 2.5 goals in total and in Lucas Perez they have someone who could ask serious questions of an unconvincing Sevilla defence. The former Arsenal man has fired in goals in 5 of his last 9 appearances for the club and his pace will make him a danger on the break here, with Depor likely to adopt a counter-attacking approach. Given that, backing Lucas Perez to score anytime looks like a solid bet.
Their record of 1.5 goals per away game is very good for a struggling side but they have let in 1.92 goals per game overall, the 5th worst defensive record in the division. Sevilla have all the creative tools to exploit that so there should be a few goals in this for the hosts, which makes backing Over 2.5 Goals look good.
Meanwhile going for Sevilla to Win & Both Teams to Score is also worth considering with the Andalusian side averaging 2.67 points per home game, the 2nd best record in La Liga. Do you agree with this Sevilla vs Deportivo La Coruna predictions article?
