29 Mar 2016
Deportivo will try to secure the permanence in the penultimate month of the season, but it wonít be an easy task as 3 of the 5 rivals in April are currently lying among the top five positions, including leaders FC Barcelona.

The moment of the definition has arrived as Deportivo need two or even only one more win to secure the permanence, but it will be a hard challenge to achieve in April as four of the rivals in the month are in the first part of the standings, with three of those clubs lying among the first five positions.

And the month starts with the Galician derby, RC Celta had problems in the middle of the season, but now they regained their best form. They have practically secured a spot in the Europa League and are even dreaming with the Champions League been only six points under fourth place Villarreal CF.

Then Depor face a crucial meeting hosting UD Las Palmas, the Canarians are the only rival in the month thatís currently below the Galicians at the standings (3 points away), but it doesnít mean that it will be easy, because they are living their best moment on the season after winning four of the last five games and after clinching three straight away victories.
