Ridiculous performance by Deportivo. Yago Iglesias gave a masterclass with his tactic and Depor is living its worst moment ever been sixth in the global standing of group 1.

1- Masterclass by Yago Iglesias: The big winner of the game at the Riazor is Compostelaís coach Yago Iglesias. His planning was simply perfect. He presented a 4-3-3 draw with special orders, like putting a high pressure in large frames of the meetings, JosiŮo with the order to not allowing internal passes, Pablo Antas with a special mark over Rolan and with three left-footed players releasing attack by the sides (Miki, Bicho and Juampa). The only thing that fails is that they donít have a proper centre forward, and that lack of a reference is the cause of the lack of goals, because Brais Abelenda is good coming from behind, but not as a fixed forward. Even with this deficiency they deserved the victory and even a bigger score.

2- Big differences between both teams: The true is that outcome shouldnít b a surprise, because Compostela is a team with a long preparation, itís the base from last season and Iglesias has practically repeated the same starting eleven game after game, so they know what they are doing.  Meanwhile, De La Barrera has barely completed two weeks with the team and thereís isnít any defined style and neither a base, just to have in mind that the experiments of placing Erik Osede as a right-back and RolŠn as second striker. The act of pulling RolŠn out of the area probed to be terrible, because the Uruguayan loses his main ability and Beauvue is not the right man for the role of centre forward.

3- A worrying offensive line: Thereís an outrage surrounding Deportivo for how the season is going, and the main focus is in how terrible the offensive line is performing. Once again the team was incapable of creating opportunities, the only shot on target and therefore the only chance came after an error of Compostela that Beauvue couldnít capitalize (49í), the first goal of the visiting side came in the following play. Taking out that isolated play, Depor were simply inexistent in attack. Deportivo continue to be a terrible offensive line, and it isnít strange to realize that the team has remained scoreless in the four games played in 2021.

4- The changes made by De La Barrera: Itís hard to blame Ruben de La Barrera for the current situation, but the delay in the changes isnít a good sign. His team was falling down in the second part, and he only made changes until his team was having ten men on the pitch.

5- The influence of the referee: To admit that the referee influenced in the result wonít hide that SD Compostela deserved the victory after been the superior side on the pitch. But itís what happened at the Riazor. Referee Albert Ńvalos Matos should have disallowed the first goal after the clear foul of Bicho over Mujaid, and it had further consequences because Deporís centre-back was booked for protesting and was later sent off for a foul committed ten minutes later. He also showed yellow card to Deporís players just when he didnít want to show the cards to Compostela for committing similar fouls.

6- The worst situation in the history of the club: In the combined table at group 1, Depor is currently the sixth place. This means the worst situation in the history of the club. In the previous two opportunities in which Los Blanquiazules were at the third tier, their worst situation was to be fifth (October 26, 1980). Only a new proof of the dark times lived by the club.
