Impressive back-to-back win for Deportivo, the first one during the season. Racing was a tough rival that instead of searching the draw, it gave a lot of troubles with the combination Zigic-Jonathan Pereira. The Cantabrians were leading, fairly, 2-1 at half-time. But then a perfect storm called Depor appeared in the second half to score four times within twenty four minutes. The secret was the change of strategy as the Galicians switched the jammed attacks by the centre during the first half for the unstoppable plays on both wins during the second part. Also important was the entry of Riki, player that scored two goals in his comeback.  Other important men were Lafita, Valer??n or the same Lassad

Bu the game will be remembered for the number of goals; actually it’s already entering into the records book. This is the first time that Depor scores five goals in a single encounter since the 5-1 over Atletico Madrid back on the season 2003/2004 (October 4th 2003). It’s also the first time in which Depor witnesses eight goals in a single match since the 2-6 loss with Compostela back on the season 1997/1998 (May 10th 1998). The only bad news of the game is the new injury case at Depor: Lopo. The Catalan suffered a Lumbalgia case before half-time and further scans will determinate the seriousness of the problem.
