With both teams having excellent results in week two of La Liga with home side Deportivo coming back from being two goals down to Valencia at the Mestalla, and were unlucky not to have nicked the winner in stoppage time with Brazilian goalkeeper Alves parrying a low shot from Gama.
The Galician’s are back in the top flight determined to make their presence felt. Meanwhile in the suburbs of Madrid, Gatafe pulled off the shocker of the week beating the Champions Real Madrid 2-1 with Jose Mourinho refusing to speak to his players about their deserved loss.
The Azulones manager Luis Garcia Plaza said that his team went into the match with a game plan, and pulled it off.
I am not too sure what kind of plan he has for Saturdays match at the Riazor but there could be a hiccup if they lose Venezuelan striker Miku before the transfer deadline on Friday having already turned down a 4 million Euro offer from Turkish side Trabzonspor.
Swansea’s Michael Laudrup knows that Getafe need to sell players, and would like to pick up the £8 million rated player on the cheap.
Fresh with cash from the Joe Allen sale to Liverpool, and what looks like a done deal for Sinclair to City my prediction is that Miku will be on his way to South Wales rather than the North of Spain come Saturday.
Bet on Deportivo’s 23-year-old Portuguese striker Pizzi to score the opening goal at in what should be an easy win for the home side.
