The betting lines favor Espanyol to beat Coruna on Friday, and that online sportsbook betting favoritism may have a lot to do with the fact that the match is going to take place at RCDE Stadium. The home team has won seven of the last ten games between these two teams. Moreover, the away team has failed to score in the last nine of those ten games. Since September 19th, 2009 when Espanyol defeated Coruna 3-2, the home team has only failed to win twice – two 0-0 draws in October 26th, 2014 and March 22nd 2015. In spite of that, Coruna fans can still expect the team to create scoring chances with attacking set pieces, attempt crosses and take a lot of shots in order to try to make the best of Espanyol’s lack of ability to defend against attacks down the wings.
