Negative pre-season for Deportivo. The team lost more games and allowed more goals, mainly in the second half. Meanwhile, Luisinho was the player with more minutes. Fariña and Toché were the top-scorers.

The general statistics of Deportivo on the pre-season were negative, the team played nine games and lost five times: 0-1 Vs. Independiente Santa Fé, 1-3 Vs. Deportivo Cali, 0-1 Vs. SC Braga, 0-2 Vs. RC Celta and 2-3 Vs. SD Ponferradina. The lonely draw was a goalless game against Acádemica Coimbra, while the remaining three games were victories: 2-0 Vs. Racing de Ferrol, 3-0 Vs. Nacional de Montevideo and 1-0 Vs. Sporting Gijón.

In the period the Blanquiazul team scored nine goals and allowed ten. It calls the attention that the major part of the goals were conceded in the second half (8) of the meetings and the major part were leaked when the team was defending the set-pieces.

About the players, 34 men had minutes during those nine matches. Ten of those players are current members of Fabril: goalkeeper David Gómez, defenders, Iago López, Róber, Jorge Fernández and Stefan Deák, midfielders Marcos Remeseiro, Jesús Cañizares ‘Cañi’, Álvaro Queijeiro and Miguel Cardoso, plus striker Dani Iglesias.

The other 24 men are the current players of the first team, including the eight signings made during the summer. It’s hard to obtain conclusions from the statistics of the players, because new coach Víctor Fernández had to improvise at times using even players that are expected to leave.

Only five of the players took part in the nine matches played during the pre-season and all of them are defenders: right-back Laure, centre-backs Pablo Insua and Albert Lopo, plus left-backs Luisinho and Roberto Canella.

So, it isn’t strange to realize that the four men with more minutes on the stage are defenders: Luisinho (581), Lopo (556), Insua (547) and Laure (546). Álex Bergantiños (529) completed the group of five players that had 500 or more minutes during the pre-season.

The three signings with more minutes were Canella (480), José Rodriguez (431) and Luis Fariña (392). The Fabril’s player with more minutes was Remeseiro, who performed for 203 minutes distributed in five games. But the B team player with more appearances on the pre-season was centre-back Iago López, who played in six of the nine games, though only accumulated 124 minutes.

Of the nine goals scored by Depor, six were netted between Toché and Fariña, both scored three goals during the pre-season. Midfielders Álex Bergantiños and Juan Dominguez were the other scorers, while there was an own goal in favour. Finally, to mention that 5 of the 9 goals were scored after seizing an error of the rival, for this reason there were only four assists: Luisinho (2), Juan Carlos and Lopo.
