Atletico Madrid vs Deportivo La Coruna 02/04/18
At the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, Atletico Madrid will be facing Deportivo La Coruna, which might be considered just another day at the office for Diego Simeone’s team given the fact The Blues and Whites have failed to win a game in La Liga since December’s 1-0 victory over Leganes at home. Los Colchoneros intend to extend their impressive 5-game winning streak in front of the home supporters, against the team who lost seven out of previous eight away matches in La Liga with a miserable -23 goal difference. Deportivo have to avoid defeat against the side who have beaten them eleven times in a row in Madrid if they want to keep their chances of staying in the top-flight alive. Atletico Madrid have once again proved they have one of the toughest defenses in Europe, as they’ve only conceded just fourteen goals this season, and they’ve also kept a clean sheet in last seven games at home.
The Mattressers’ team is decimated by injuries suffered by Filipe Luiz, Victor Vitolo, Juanfran, and Thomas Party. Jan Oblak is ill, while Antoine Griezmann accumulated five yellow cards and won’t be in the squad for the weekend. Clarence Seedorf is also in trouble as Luisinho, Michael Krohn-Dehli, Eneko Bóveda, Federico Cartabia, and Florin Andone are all dealing with injuries, while Fernando Navarro won’t be available due to a yellow card suspension.
