On Friday evening at the stadium "Mestalla", Valencia welcomes Deportivo La Coruna in a meeting of the 27th round of the Spanish Primera Division. The hosts occupy fourth place in the standings with a total of 54 points and Deportivo La Coruna are 16th with 25 points collected.
Valencia made a surprising defeat in the championship from Deportivo with 3-0 as guests and now will surely want revenge at home. "Bats" are in great shape and registered six consecutive successes at home and now are unbeaten in six matches in all competitions.
The hosts are the big favorites in this match, as the coefficient of their victory is within 1.40 to 1.50, while the success of Deportivo La Coruna is accepted on odds of 8.00.
Valencia has one goal - ranking in the top four and place in the Champions League, which will obviously happen. The team occupies the fourth position and is with an advance of 5 points ahead of Sevilla and 6 points ahead of Villarreal. In the last round of the league, "bats" had a tough game against a direct rival for the third place - Atletico Madrid. They don`t determine a winner and both teams shared a point. The important thing is that the distance between Valencia and Atletico Madrid is only one-point and Nuno Santo has even a chance for the third place. For the upcoming match against Deportivo La Coruna, Nuno Santo has no major problems and the only missing players in the composition are defender Shkodran Mustafi and midfielder Javi Fuego.
Deportivo La Coruna managed to win only one point for the last 4 meetings in Primera Division. The team is dangerously close to the relegation zone and only one point lead kept them out of it. The visitors have not won in four consecutive rounds, and for their last 9 games away from home fail to achieve victory. The coach Victor Fernandez has a little more trouble than his counterpart. For the heavy visit, specialist will not be able to rely on two of his main strikers in the face of the Portuguese Helder Postiga and Spaniard Toche and midfielder Diogo Salomao.
