Match Result: 2:1 WON!!!
|The early game on the final day of the La Liga (LL) season sees Champions League bound Valencia take on relegated Deportivo La Coruna. With nothing at stake in this final game, fans will hope for a few goals and an entertaining game.|
|After a disappointing campaign last season, Valencia have been one of this season’s surprise packages and fourth place will represent their highest finish since 2014/’15. Last time out, they snapped a five-game winless streak (D2, L3) with a 1-0 win at Girona.|
|Deportivo have had a season to forget. Officially relegated in round 35, the ‘Branquiazuis’ sit in 18th place and are winless in five (D3, L2) following their 4-2 home loss last week to Villarreal. They are, however, unbeaten in three away games (W1, D2). This will be their third relegation in eight years but they can take heart that they bounced straight back in the previous two.|
|Valencia have a fine recent record against Deportivo, losing just once in the last 23 meetings (W13, D9, L1) including a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture this season. The last time Deportivo won at the Mestalla was back in 2005.|
