Interesting game is the one that awaits us at the Estadio Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz), when Alavés comes to sentence the series against Deportivo La Coruna, in play corresponding to the round of 16 of the King’s Cup in Spain.
There is still everything to play in this game back, after the tie 2-2 in the first leg at Riazor last week, in a game where Alavés won a 2-0 lead in the first half and fortunately For the supporters of Deportivo, the marker could be quickly equalized.
Those led by Argentine Mauricio Pellegrino come from drawing 0-0 in their visit to Athletic Bilbao in their La Liga match, to add their fourth game without conceding goals in their last 5 matches.
The current moment for them is good, they have not lost since the end of November, adding an unbeaten 8 games in all competitions, where they won 4 and tied the remaining 4 and the best is that it is so hard in defense, to the point that In six of those eight games received no goal, to be placed in the 12th place in the table with a distance of 10 points from the drop zone.
For their part, those led by Gaizka Garitano can say that is also having a good time, the cast of Deportivo La Coruna, comes from tied a goal in his visit to Espanyol and with this, extended a streak of four games unbeaten in All competitions, the theme is that despite this, they remain complicated with the theme of the descent, as they are only 5 points from the drop zone.
However, the tie 2-2 in the first leg at the Riazor was the third consecutive draw between these teams and the numbers are even, since playing as local Alavés, in the last five games, each adds two wins; But it must be said that Alavés is taking a good advantage to this game back after scoring two goals in the first leg, and with that, a goalless draw or a goal puts him in the quarterfinals and for a change Deportivo La Coruña is A team that has not won a visiting party in all competitions this season.
For a change, Alavés defense is much better, have conceded only twice in their last 8 games, unlike a Depor, who has only kept the unbeaten bow in a timeline of his last 16 games.
Therefore, the alternative of No Draw in favor of Alavés, we believe that is the best, since in case of equality in the score, we are returned the bet.
