Preview: Depor-Eibar

Deportivo La Coruna host high-flying Eibar on Saturday, still looking for their first win under Clarence Seedorf.

Depor boss Clarence Seedorf on his side’s mood going into the match: “I was thinking about changes, even before the game against Getafe.

“Mentally we’re like bulls. The team are eager and full of energy. Lack of goals? I’m not worried, we’ve been creating chances.”

Eibar boss Jose Luis Mendilibar on fitting both Fabian Orellana and Pedro Leon: “Good players understand each other.

“I didn’t really understand what Orellana was doing here when he first came because I thought he could play for a team with different objectives.

“Pedro Leon’s the same. After nine months out, it’s not easy to come back competing and do what he’s done.

“Only quality players can do that. We’re lucky to have them both.”
