Deportivo La Coruna vs Eibar: Relegation threatened Depor welcome high flying Basques to RiazorMarch 2, 2018
Deportivo La Coruna and Eibar will do battle at the Estadio Riazor on Saturday evening with the hosts looking to move out of the bottom three against an Eibar side who currently sit seventh.
Depor are two points behind both Las Palmas in 18th and Levante in 17th and would climb above both if they can collect the three points against Eibar. Jose Luis Mendilibar’s men however have had a fantastic season and could potentially move level on points with Villarreal in sixth.
The two sides go into the game off the back of two entirely different results in midweek, Eibar were 1-0 winners over Villarreal while Depor went down 3-0 at the hands of Getafe.
When the sides met earlier this season it was a goalless affair at the Ipurua with both sides hoping for a better result this time around.
Guilherme and Fede Cartabia both miss out for the hosts with Eibar still missing Fran Rico and Sergi Enrich through injury while Ander Capa, Vukasin Jovanovic, Ivan Ramis and Yoel Rodriguez all left out by Mendilibar.
Deportivo La Coruna (4-3-3): Ruben; Boveda, Sidnei, Albentosa, Navarro; Muntari, Borges, Colak; Perez, Andone, Adrian
Eibar (4-4-2): Dmitrovic; Pena, Arbilla, Oliveira, Angel; Orellana, Diop, Jordan, Inui; Charles, Kike
