DEPORTIVO LA CORUNA - BARCELONA
Barcelona travel without Messi, Alves, Milito, Iniesta, Puyol, Marques and a couple of others.
Obviously celebrations went on long into the night on Wednesday and again upon their return home. To play again just a couple of days later in a "meaningless" fixture is incredibly tough and to be honest, they need this game like another hole in their head. Hosts are very strong on home soil , where they are 10-5-3 and they have a very nice h2h record with the european champions here, winning six from ten starts. They started the season by beating last years champions Real and can end it by beating the newly crowned title holders. If any extra motivation was needed a win could also earn them a Europa League spot.
I like them very much to win this, but Barce do have a little to play for as they have an outside chance to become the all time high goalscorers in La Liga, if this has any appeal for them, this could develop into a very high scoring affair and we can take a little on a five goal plus thriller.
6.5 points Deportivo -1/2 ball 2.20 asian line.
2.5 points "over" 4.5 goals 4.70 exchanges.Good Luck.
