Extremadura Lorca Deportiva betting preview with odds an our tips

Lorca Deportiva have taken just one point from their last three Spain. Segunda Division B. Group 4 matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Lorca Deportiva are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Extremadura should prove no easy feat either – Lorca Deportiva haven’t won against any Spain. Segunda Division B. Group 4 leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Extremadura have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Extremadura dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Spain. Segunda Division B. Group 4’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Extremadura are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Extremadura and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Extremadura’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Lorca Deportiva are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Lorca Deportiva took a point away from Extremadura (1-1 draw).

Notably, Extremadura’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Extremadura have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Spain. Segunda Division B. Group 4 away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Lorca Deportiva, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Lorca Deportiva getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Lorca Deportiva are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Extremadura hold the best away record in the Spain. Segunda Division B. Group 4 (W8 D2 L1). Lorca Deportiva’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Extremadura’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Extremadurans could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Extremadura win at 15/2 with bet365.
