Deportivo La Coruna v Barcelona Betting: Elated visitors can keep up their free-scoring run

Mar 11, 2017 10:00:14

With the champions' confidence sky-high, we think Luis Enrique's men will rack up another big win at a ground where they generally score lots of goals

It might seem like something of a comedown after the greatest ever combeack in the history of the Champions League, but Sunday afternoon sees Barcelona visit the Estadio Riazor to face Deportivo La Coruna.

The Blaugrana's 6-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain not only qualified them for the quarter finals, with the side duly instilled as favourites for the tournament once more, but it has also renewed a sense of belief among fans and players alike.

The is still a chance that Luis Enrique could bid farewell in the summer having secured another historic treble, yet the manager will be aware of how important it is to stay focused and not let his side get carried away by euphoria.

Their opponents on Sunday are a Deportivo side unbeaten in the three matches under new manager Pepe Mel, although the Galicians have an extremely poor record against Barca.

The Catalans have netted 20 goals in their last four visits to the city of La Coruna, with eight of those coming in the corresponding fixture last season. Paddy Power offer Barcelona at 1/4 (1.25) while Depor can be backed at 9/1 (10.00) and the draw is offered at 5/1 (6.00).

Given Barcelona's scoring record at the Riazor, plus their recent form in front of goal which has seen them net 17 goals in three games, backing the visitors to continue their scoring run makes sense and the price of 5/6 (1.83) for the Blaugrana to score three or more goals looks unmissable.

While Deportivo have been relatively solid at home defensively this season, a free-scoring Barca side should be more than capable of netting over 2.5 goals, with the Blaugrana the division's top scorers on the road.

Furthermore, the Catalans have no midweek game coming up meaning that Luis Enrique is unlikely to rotate his squad, and a first choice Barcelona front three will surely guarantee a high-scoring afternoon for the visitors.
