Barcelona vs Deportivo Prediction 17 December 2017

Tournament: Sapnish La Liga
Location: Camp Nou Stadium
Match date: 17.12.2017 at 19:45

On December 17 2017 at 19:45 at the Camp Nou Stadium the local Barcelona are playing against their guests Deportivo in the upcoming 16th game of the Spanish Primera Division.

A lot of fans and experts said that Barcelona would be in a serious crisis this season after the appointment of their manager Valverde. They were supposed to be in some kind of a crisis and yet they didn’t fulfill these expectations. Barcelona easily made it to the Round of 16 of the Champions League, to the Round of 16 of the Copa del Rey and they are also on the top of the table of the national elite division.

They don’t tend to be very efficient, they choose to be effective with the new manager. They win due to the difference in class as they manage to score 2 or 3 goals and keep that advantage. In the latest eight games they only had one game where they scored three goals. It may be not connected with the fact that they have a new manager but with the fact they lost one of their important forwards and another one is not in his best conditions.

As for Deportivo, they outplayed Leganes in the latest match and it let them get three points above the relegation zone. That was a very important victory for them and they may be in a good mood before the upcoming match against the favorites of the league.

Deportivo lost half of their matches already played and yet they mostly did it with not such a big goal difference. They only lost to Real Madrid with 0:3 score and to Espanyol 4:1. In the rest of the games they lost with maximum two goals difference.

Of course, Deportivo will be trying to avoid less in the upcoming match and draw will be the best result they can expect. They will probably concentrate on defense. They may even manage to score in their counter-attacks. There is also one interesting fact we would like to mention. Deportivo often appear to be really difficult competitors for Barcelona at the Camp Nou Stadium. In the latest five games Deportivo lost twice and drew three times at the Camp Nou Stadium.

Barcelona don’t seem to be ready to score four or five goals, it’s much more important for them to get three points than to make their fans happy. That’s why we don’t think that they will easily deal with the teams which will choose to protect their goal with all of the squad.
