Spain: Copa del Rey - Zaragoza vs Dep. La Coruna

Zaragoza vs Dep. La Coruna Betting Tips and Preview

This is the second round of the Spanish Football Cup, and this is certainly one of the most interesting duels. Zaragoza has been in Segunda for years, and last season they played the playoffs for placement in La Liga, from which Deportivo was eliminated last season. The desire of both teams in the new season is to be at the very top of the table and for the moment they are doing a great job, because they are undefeated after four games. In their last mutual duel, which was played in 2014, Deportivo celebrated has celebrated in Zaragoza with 1-0.


Zaragoza has started the new season in a good way and they hope they can do at least as in the last season, which means qualify in the playoffs for placement in La Liga, if they do not get to be among the first two teams that go directly to a higher rank. They do not want to repeat the failure from the aforementioned playoffs, when Numancia eliminated them already on the first step, and as for the Cup, they probably do not have great ambitions.

From this season, they will be led by Imanol Idiakez from the bench and for now under his leadership they have not lost any matches. They have made two wins and two draws in the first four rounds, while their best match was last weekend when they played 4-0 against Oviedo. They remained without their best shooter from last season, Borje Iglesias, so the new goal getter should be Alvaro Vazquez from Espanyol.

Dep. La Coruna

After the last season’s elimination from La Liga, it was logical that the team from La Coruna would suffer big changes and that is what happened. Under the guidance of a new coach Natxo Gonzalez, they started their performance in Segunda with only one goal, and that is to expressly return in the elite rank of Spanish football. They were left without a large number of standard players, because they simply do not want to play in the lower rank, so they have lost the entire last line, Juanfran, Sidnei, Schar and Luisinho, as well as midfeidlers Guillherme and Borges and striker Andon.

There is a large number of newcomers in the team, and it seems that they have adjusted to the team well for now and that coach Gonzalez did a good job in rearranging them, since they did not lose any matches and have played three times as guests. Two draws and a victory over Extremadura, before the first home match and a triumph in a derby over Sporting Gijon. They have luckily scored three points in that duel, because the only goal was scored by Pablo Mari in the fourth minute of the injury time. They had more players in the finish, and before that midfielder Moreno did not achieve the penalty.


The championship fight for placement in La Liga is much important for both teams and the Cup is probably in the second round. Zaragoza is the host and they may be somewhat more motivated, but we are forecasting a tough match with a few goals.
