Los Che were recently held by Sporting Gijon, while Deportivo have been involved in draws with Atletico Madrid and Real Betis of late.

Both teams have been leaking goals in recent weeks too, but have been capable of finding the target themselves.

Therefore, another stalemate and both teams scoring can be backed at a highly promising 4/1 with BetVictor.

Rodrigo Moreno to strike again anytime

Spanish hitman Rodrigo will look to add more goals to his season tally.

There have been many past greats to lead Los Che’s line through the years.

Waldo Machado, Mario Kempes and Mundo are club icons.

Meanwhile, in more recent campaigns, Fernando Morientes, John Carew and David Villa have taken on that role.

It’s currently the club’s record signing Rodrigo Moreno that leads their attack.

The 26-year-old Spain international has six goals on all fronts this term.

He also netted the vital equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Deportivo last year.

Rodrigo can be backed at a potentially prosperous 13/8 with Paddy Power to net again anytime.
