Moreover, five of the last seven overall meetings had goals from both teams. They scored two or more goals in four of the last five fixtures and got on the scoresheet in nine of their last ten away ties. Finally, take into account the form Malaga is in, and itd be upset if they do not find the back of the net.

While they do have two away goals to their name, the team is trailing by two against Deportivo. Its pandemonium as of now in the Segunda playoffs, and favorites Malaga is looking at the imminent exit. As such, the hosts for this game will need a 2-0, or 3-1 win to advance, whereas if La Coruna manages two goals, then the home team will need a three-goal margin to make the final.

The 184-cm-tall midfielder then moved to Elche and after playing 25 games in La Liga for los Franjiverdes, he returned to La Coruna at the end of the 2014/2015 season, signing a deal with his boyhood club Deportivo. Pedro Mosquera has a contract with the Galician club which expires on June 30, 2021. His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as a defensive midfielder as well.

He was only appointed Malaga boss in mid-April following the sacking of Juan Muiz but has really hit the ground running steering the Andalusians to a 3rd place finish and the advantage of a home 2nd leg. Malaga are unquestionably the form team. They head into the play-offs following five straight victories (includes an awarded 1-0 over now defunct Reus). To add to the spice, as if any were needed, the mastermind of the turnaround in form has been none other than former Depor player and coach Vctor Snchez.

Malaga vs Deportivo La Coruna Prediction & Match Preview

That gives them a nice cushion to take to the Costa del Sol for the 2nd Leg of this tie as they aim to reach the play-off final and end Malagas hopes of an immediate return to the top flight. Despite twice falling behind with Javi Ontiveros instrumental for Malaga, they produced a terrific 2nd Half comeback to win 4-2 to the delight of the Riazor.

Finally, take into account the form Malaga is in, and itd be upset if they do not find the back of the net. They scored two or more goals in four of the last five fixtures and got on the scoresheet in nine of their last ten away ties. Moreover, five of the last seven overall meetings had goals from both teams.

Depor also sacked their coach in April with Jos Luis Mart taking charge to steer them over the finish line and at least give them a shot at securing an immediate return to the top flight. Depor have also ended the season pretty well though with their last 7 games producing 4 victories and only one defeat. They saw off Cordoba 2-0 in their final fixture at the weekend to ensure they pipped Cadiz and Oviedo to the final play-off spot.

Weve seen some miraculous comebacks in the Segunda Division play-offs in recent years. However Depor will be a tougher proposition than some of those sides and they showed enough last time out to suggest they are well capable of scoring at La Rosaleda which would make it very tough for Malaga to progress. Malaga will also take confidence from having scored 3 times in each of their last 3 home games, winning the lot and conceding a total of just one goal. This tie isnt over just yet.

Los Boquerones, on the other hand, are on a five-game winning run in the Spanish second tier, but they will have a big fish to fry in Wednesdays football match against Jose Martis troops. Deportivo La Coruna fans are likely to pack the stadium and that is the main reason why we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Galician team, who are desperate to return to Primera Division.

Highlighted Player (David Lomban):

Deportivo La Coruna play host to Malaga at their Estadio Abanca-Riazor in the first leg of the Segunda Division play-offs. Deportivo are a real force to be reckoned with at home and despite the fact that Malaga finished the regular part of the season in third position in the standings, we believe that home win should be considered. The Galicians recorded a routine 2-0 win over Cordoba on the last day of the regular season, with the team clinching their spot in the play-offs.

After making 62 appearances for the club, he signed a three-year contract with Granada on 10 August, 2015. Lomban played 31 games for los Granadinos in the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign, but he failed to find the net for the Andalusian outfit in the top flight. David Lomban played just one season for the Catalan outfit in Segunda Division and then he decided to take a bigger step towards a brighter future as he joined La Liga side Elche.
