Atletico Madrid vs Deportivo

Atletico Madrid are currently second in the LaLiga table, having 12 points less than the leader Barcelona and they need a miracle to win the titile this season even if Barcelona have lost 2 points in their last game against Sevilla. They have this game in hand and if they will win they can reduce the gap to 9 points but with only 9 games to go, they now appear to fight for the second spot with their rival Real Madrid and also for Europa League title.
Their home form has been impressive as they have won their previous 7 home games and they have only lost 2 games in their last 22 games in their field in all competitions. This is largely thanks to their strong defence that conceded only 14 goals in their last 29 goals, with 0.29 goals per games conceded on average at home in LaLiga and with 71% of thoses games have seen them keeping clean sheet.

For team news, the home team will miss Gimenez (20/1 d), Juanfran (11/0 d), Filipe Luis (17/1 d), Vrsaljko (16/0 d), Vitolo (7/1 m, suspended) and Griezmann (26/7, suspended).
On the other side, Dep. La Coruna are struggling in the bottom of LaLiga table, having 8 points less than the safety zone. Their recent record has been very poor as they are winless in their last 6 games (L4, D2) even if they haven’t played against the big 6 teams in Spain in this period. Their away form has been catastrophic as they have lost 7 matches in their previous 8 away games with very poor performance, for example they have lost against Real Madrid with 7-1, Real Sociedad with 5-0, Getafe with 3-0, Girona with 2-0. They have failed to score in their last 4 away games and in 50% of their of their away league game.
For team news, visitors will miss Fernando Navarro (11/0 d, suspended), Boveda (8/0 d), Cartabia 19/2 m), Valverde (19/0 m) and Borgos (26/3 m).
I expect a narrow win for the home side.
