Deportivo La Coruna vs Castellon Betting Tips: DEPO TO WIN

Both sides have sealed their promotion back to the Segunda Division (second tier) after, as mentioned, coming out victorious in their regular season groups, and they will now battle it out in the grand final to determine the Primera Federacion champion for the 2023-24 season.

Interestingly, these two rivals clashed last year in the Primera RFEF playoff semifinals, where CD Castellon proved to be the better side in the two-legged tie to knock out Deportivo La Coruna after nerve-wracking extra time 4-3 on aggregate.

As a result, the Galician club will be seeking ruthless revenge, and their recent strong form gives them reasonable chances of success here, as their unbeaten streak stretches back to an impressive 19 games (W15 D4).

Even more impressively, Deportivo enter the first leg of the Primera RFEF playoff final with their heads held high, as they've been unstoppable at their Riazor fortress since the turn of the calendar year, turning nine out of their 11 home matches into victories, with just two draws along the way.

Just narrowly missing out on promotion last season, falling to Alcorcon in the playoff final, CD Castellon have left no room for doubt about their comeback to the Segunda Division this year, as their impressive accumulation of 82 points has earned them the title of the best team in Group II.

Despite earning promotion to the second tier, Orelluts fell off the pace in the closing weeks of the season, as they've gone three straight league matches without tasting victory, only taking one point in a 1-1 draw with Algeciras, while losing to UD Ibiza and Sanluqueno during that time.

Considering they are a force to be reckoned with when playing at their packed Riazor, Imanol Idiakez's men should showcase their strength now when it's most needed, and we have full confidence in their ability to take a fine lead before the second-leg trip to Valencia, especially as they are desperately eager to serve up a ruthless revenge to the off-color Castellon.

Castellon team news

American goalkeeper Brian Schwake was given the opportunity to stand between the sticks on the final day of the Primera RFEF - Group II season, but his stint in goal was short-lived as he was shown a red card shortly before the end of the first half.

While first-choice goalkeeper Gonzalo Crettaz is expected to return between the posts, coach Dick Schreuder might also consider calling upon experienced Borja Granero in midfield after he was left unused as a substitute last time out.
