Real Madrid v Deportivo Prediction & Betting Tips – 21st January 201819th January 2018 / lee
Real Madrid v Deportivo La Liga, 21st January 3.15pm
Real Madrid slipped again last weekend on league duty as they suffered a home loss against Villarreal. That leaves them with just the one point earned from their last three league matches and they are looking a little bit out of sorts, with rumours that Ronaldo wants to leave as well. Deportivo are struggling in the relegation zone at the moment in La Liga and that may afford Real Madrid the chance of a better afternoon on home soil. Real Madrid are 2/17 for the win at William Hill, with the draw at 17/2 and Deportivo are at 19/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 17th, 2018 at 6:58 p.m.)
Real Madrid v Deportivo Betting Tips
Another misfire for Real Madrid last weekend then as Villareal got the better of them 1-0 at the Bernabeu. That leaves them with a D1 L2 record in their last three games played and both defeats were at home without Real Madrid getting on the scoresheet in either of them. It leaves their home form at W5 D2 L3 for the season and surprisingly that is three times in their ten home games this season they have failed to hit the back of the net. Real Madrid have come up with 19 goals at home which is just under an average of two goals per game while they have conceded at a rate of a goal per game. Real Madrid have collected four clean sheets and as they are taking on a side struggling near the foot of the table then Real Madrid to win to nil at 11/10 odds at William Hill should appeal* (Betting Odds taken on January 17th, 2018 at 6:58 p.m.). Can the reigning champions get themselves going again and find a positive.
Madrid have actually won just one of their last five games in the Spanish top flight failing to score in three of those five games. It’s been a real drop off in terms of quality from them this season. Reports are coming out that Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to bail on them, but who knows how much truth there is to that. He is the outright favourite in the first goalscorer market for the game. Real Madrid collected a comfortable 3-0 away win over Deportivo earlier this season and they are on a positive nine-match winnings streak in La Liga against them. You can’t argue with that really and they have scored at least three goals in each of their last three against them and at least two in each of their nine. So there’s a decent chance that they will be comfortable and Real Madrid to win by a two-goal margin with William Hill carries some appeal.
Desportivo are having their troubles this season and they are in the relegation zone heading into the weekend. They have collected only the one point from their last four games played and as an indicator of what could happen in this one, they recently lost 4-0 at Barcelona. Deportivo have managed just the one away win all season long in a W1 D3 L5 record. Their away form is miserable as well as they have only collected one point from the last twelve available to them on the road. They have also conceded really heavily on their travels as well at a rate of over two goals per game in fact and that is likely to leave them in big trouble here. Going forward they have managed the ten away goals in their eleven games and that’s not likely going to be good enough to plaster over the cracks in their defence in this one.
Who will win – Real Madrid v Deportivo Predictions
Madrid have failed in their last two games at home against tougher opposition, but they should have it a bit easier here. Deportivo don’t look as if they have the kind of defence that is going to withstand an afternoon at the Bernabeu. Look for a home win to nil.
