Juan Dominguez commanded several of the stats during the season, including better passing ratio and more minutes. Borja Bastón was the top-scorer, Rabello made more assists and the influence of Culio was still present.

33 players participated with Deportivo for the season that has just ended; of this list 30 men had minutes in liga and the remaining three players only performed in Copa Del Rey.  There were seven youngsters from Fabril that had minutes in official games: Uxío Marcos, Stefan Deák, Quique Fornos, Bicho, Paulo Teles, Cañi and Dani Iglesias.

The player with more minutes was Juan Dominguez (3,490) followed by Pablo Insua (3,463), both were also the men with more appearances in liga (39). It calls the attention that four of the five men that played 3,000 or more minutes on the season are ex-Fabril players, the other two were Álex Bergantiños (3,196) and Laure (3.128). Argentine keeper German Lux completed the quintet (3.280).

However and contrary to the expectations, the current Fabril’s players barely appeared with the team, only four youngsters had minutes in liga: Bicho (123), Uxío (101), Teles (89) and Dani Iglesias (13). The other three lads with official appearances in liga only played in Copa: Deák, Cañi and Quique Fornos.

Meanwhile, four players made ten or more liga appearances as a substitute. Striker Luis Fernández starred the list with 17 games coming out from the bench, he was followed by Antonio Núñez (15), Borja Bastón (13) and Juan Carlos (10).

It was a poor offensive season for Depor, with the Galician outfit only scoring 48 goals in 42 games, so it shouldn’t be strange to notice the poor individual marks in terms of goals scored and assists. The Pichichi of the season was Borja Bastón, the Madrilenian attacker netted 10 goals in 34 appearances.

Borja Bastón was the Pichichi on the season

It calls the attention that the second best scorer was the player with more appearances coming out from the bench: Luis Fernández (5). Then other three players ended scoring four times: Juan Dominguez, Toché and Diego Ifrán.

Another interesting stat are the assists, Bryan Rabello (5) was the leader in the department despite he only played five months at the club, Juan Culio, who only played until early in January, was second in the list with four assists.  Other three players contributed with four assists and spent the full season at the club: Luisinho, Juan Carlos and Antonio Núñez.

Regarding the shots, Borja Bastón clearly led the department with 72 shots, 22 of them on target (shooting accuracy of only 30.56%). The rest of players had very inferior numbers. Luis (37) was the second player with more shots, followed by Juan Dominguez and Luisinho (both with 28).  Culio (26) was also present in the list despite only playing half of the season at the club. Juan Dominguez was the second player with more shots on target (15) followed by Luis (14).

The stats of the passes are also interesting. Juan Dominguez was the player with more passes (1,995) and was also the man with the better passing ratio (85.9%). It should be a normal thing as he’s a centre midfielder, what’s surprising is that the second best passing ratio is for a central defender: Insua (84.2%).

Juan Dominguez led several stats, including best passing ratio

Only six players achieved a passing ration above the 80% (with at least 5 league appearances). The other four men on the list are: Cezary Wilk (82.7%), Laure (81.1%), Bicho (81%), and Álex Bergantiños (80.5%). Meanwhile, Diogo Salomão had the worst passing ratio (58%), followed by Antonio Núñez (62.8%) and the whole attacking line at Depor: Arizmendi (64.9%), Toché (68.5), Ifrán (68,7%), Borja Bastón (72.4%) and Luis (74.6%).

Juan Dominguez was the player that received more fouls (84) and was also the men that committed more fouls (50). Once again Culio is part of the stats as he was the second more fouled player together with Luisinho (79). Insua was the second man with more fouls committed (46) and was the most booked player at the team (13 yellow cards). Then four players were sent off on this season: Culio, Núñez, Juan Dominguez and Luisinho, the latter in two different opportunities.

In other stats, Culio was the player with more crosses despite his early exit (174), the Argentine man was followed by Luisinho (143), Laure (107), Núñez (59) and Seoane (57). Insua was the player with more clearances (199), followed by Álex Bergantiños (75) and Carlos Marchena (73). Finally, Lopo had the best ratio of duels won (66%) and aerial duels won (73.20%).

German Lux clinched 19 clean sheets on the season (in one game he shared the glory with Fabricio, 1-0 win at Córdoba CF). It’s the second highest mark at the club after the 26 clean sheets of Liaño during the season 1993/94.

About curiosities; Juan Carlos was the only player that scored a goal and also provided an assist in one single game (3-2 Vs. CD Hércules), while Rabello and Teles were the only players that provided two assists in one single match.

The Chilean did it in the 2-2 draw Vs. CD Lugo and the Portuguese did it in the Copa clash against Córdoba CF (2-2). Finally, there were no hat-tricks on this season, only three braces: Borja Bastón in two opportunities (0-3 at CE Sabadell CF & 0-2 at Hércules CF) and Toché (3-2 Vs. Hércules CF).
