Deportivo - Betis: Rescheduled Match
Deportivo and Betis play their rescheduled fixture tonight in LaLiga. The original fixture was postponed due to the appalling weather conditions in A Coruña, on the same weekend that Real Madrid's game against Celta Vigo was also called off.
The Galicians precariously hover above the relegation zone. The recent arrival of Pepe Mel as manager has led to an upturn in form. Since the ex-West Brom coach took the reigns, Depor secured a 1-1 home draw against Atlético Madrid, and battled to a 0-1 victory at Sporting Gijón.
Real Betis sit three places and four points above their opponents for tonight. Nevertheless, Victor Sánchez' team will be looking nervously over their shoulders at the relegation zone, and will want to secure a positive result in A Coruña in order to establish a more comfortable buffer. Keep an eye on Dani Ceballos, Betis' fleet-footed young midfielder who, as a youth player, was released by fierce rivals Sevilla due to a chronic bronchitis issue.
