Deportivo La Coruña vs Girona Preview

The Friday night game in the Segunda División comes from Galicia and it sees the form team in Spanish football right now back in action as Deportivo La Coruña play host to Girona. The hosts have completely turned their season around under Fernando Vazquez and it should be another big Riazor crowd here for the visit of Girona.

Over 27,000 packed into the Riazor for Depor’s latest home game against Las Palmas, a huge crowd for this division. The reason being that Depor fans have reason to believe again after a remarkable sequence of results which has seen them respond to a 19 game winless streak in the league with 7 straight victories to lift them off the bottom and towards mid-table.

Fernando Vazquez has been the mastermind of this incredible transformation and there is now even talk of a possible play-off push and what would be one of the unlikeliest promotions in the history of this division. Depor still have a lot of work to do but they would move into the top half were they to pick up an 8th straight win here.

They take on a Girona side whose season has been spearheaded by Cristhian Stuani. The Uruguayan is the top scorer in this league with 20 goals, 59% of this team’s total. They come into this game following back-to-back victories, the most recent of which came via a last gasp Samu Saiz goal which saw off Huesca 1-0 at Montilivi.

Deportivo La Coruña vs Girona Predictions

Score Prediction: 1-0 Depor

Right now it’s impossible to go against Depor. Incredibly for a club that appeared broken only two months ago, there now seems to be a real unity between the players, coach and supporters and they will take enormous belief into this game. Girona still have the remnants of a top flight side but they’ve struggled on their travels this term, losing 8 of their 13 away games in the league and they may well end up with another defeat against their name here.
