Two sides that struggle to keep clean sheets meet on Saturday lunchtime, live on Sky Sports.
Deportivo La Coruna v Sevilla – Saturday 12:00, Sky Sports 5,
Deportivo entered the international break without a win in their last four games. Currently languishing in 16th place in La Liga (only two points above the relegation zone), they will be desperate for a win against Sevilla, who are very much in the hunt for a top-three place eleven games into the season.
A performance of mercurial genius from Lionel Messi denied Sevilla a famous win against Barcelona last time out, and Sevilla will take confidence from their performance there. That being said, their away record in the league is poor this season: they’ve won just one of their five fixtures on the road, and with playmaker Samir Nasri training on the fringes this week, they may lack attacking firepower as both Michael Krohn-Dehli and Carlos Fernandez are still out. Raul Albentosa and Marlos Moreno return to the back line for Depor, but the absences of Joselu (hamstring) and Laure (thigh) will be keenly felt by a side that has not won since the 1st October.
Each of these two sides has kept just two clean sheets over their last ten games, and with neither side keeping a clean sheet in this match-up since 2012, we’re going with Sevilla to win and Both Teams To Score.
