The worst month in the season for Deportivo, but Adrián seized the moment to score two goals and clinch three “man of the match” awards. Aranzubia still leading the global race, but Guardado is getting closer.

Depor played five games in the month of March and it was only able to add four points, reason why the European options are now so complicated. The team had some of its worst performances on the season and that was noticed in the votes as the Peña members didn’t have any preference in the month.

But there’s one exception: striker Adrián López, who wake up in March to score two goals and clinch three of the four man of the match awards (MOM). Starting with the encounter at Sevilla FC, occasion when the Asturian attacker scored the goal that mean the 1-1 and as he looked dangerous throughout the game.

The following encounter against Real Valladolid was one of the worst matches of Depor on this season, but the performance of Adrian in attack was enough to convince the voters, same goes for the visit to Sporting Gijón, match where the ex-Oviedo striker scored his second goal in a matter of a week, though Depor ended defeated after a polemic work of the referee (1-2).

This is the first player of the month award for Adrián. The other man that took advantage of March was Andrés Guardado, who was selected as the MOM for the clash against Tenerife; the Mexican scored a goal in that occasion and led the reaction than meant Depor’s last victory in liga. The ex-Atlas also ended second in the voting for the game at Sevilla FC.

In this way Adrian added fifteen points in March, while Guardado added eight.

Colotto and Antonio Tomás ended fourth in the month list with four points for each player.
