Altetico Madrid Goes for Straight Win at Estadio Municipal De RiazorPublished October 30, 2015 by Florin P
Altetico Madrid strives to make it three in a row this Friday (7:30 p.m UK Time).
Back-to-back defeats overshadowed an otherwise impressive season start for Altetico Madrid but the former champions returned to their winning ways. They secured a point against city rivals and then won three games in a row, including an important Champions League fixture. They could leapfrog both Real Madrid and Barcelona and this Friday can claim the 1st place in Primera Division even if for only 2 days.
No Players Missing for Altetico Madrid
Not having home pitch advantage is always a problem for Altetico Madrid, a team that depends on the support of its fans. Recently they proved that playing away from home is not a huge obstacle and they can definitely prevail against Deportivo. With no players missing due to injuries or suspension, they can field a competitive starting 11 and they had plenty of days to rest since a narrow margin victory over Valencia.
The next important game is scheduled for Tuesday but they will be facing once again Astana and nobody doubts their ability to win in Kazakhstan. Anything short of outright victory would be regarded as a major setback for Altetico Madrid, so odds of ¾ offered by bet365 sports are definitely worth taking.
Deportivo Shows Signs of Weakness
September was a great month for Deportivo who won three out of four games, but the team has cooled off in October and is heading down a slippery slope. They brilliantly recovered against both Granada and Athletic Bilbao but their luck ran out when they took on Malaga.
The home side scored just once in the previous 8 games, yet they managed to find the back of the net twice against La Coruna. Tonight they have home pitch advantage, but the starting formation will be defensive minded and feature five defenders, as the goal is to avoid back-to-back defeats.
