NOTES FROM THE GAME VS GRANADA

07 Nov 2016
Granada CF put a personal mark over «olak and Deportivo fell down in offensive tasks, just as it happened in past matches. Andone scored and needed more time than Oriol Riera to net for the first time.

The five notes from the game vs. Granada CF:

1- Flat in attack: Eleven matchdays have passed and Deportivo continue to be a team with big problems to attack. Against Granada CF, the performance in the first half was really poor; actually the first shot on target for the Galicians came until minute 51. The game was more open later and allowed Depor to make four more shots, but the impression left is that it has many problems to create scoring chances.

2- The importance of Emre «olak: The weight of «olak in Deporís game has been growing fast in recent weeks. In this game Granada put initial pressure over him, for this reason the Turkish only touched the ball in 10 opportunities within the first 30 minutes and Depor suffered a lot. But the pressure started to fade away and «olak appeared to assist in the goal, he ended with 40 touches in 74 minutes and with the impression that Deportivo depends a lot on him.

3- The referees: Once again a decision of the referees affected Deportivo. The goal by Babel was killing the game for the moment it took place and the fact that it was disallowed only minutes before the equalizer was scored leaves a feeling of impotence. The worrying thing is that it was not even a though call as it was very clear that Babel was coming from behind before connecting the ball. The situation was pretty similar to the goal disallowed against Athletic Bilbao and that cost the defeat (matchday 03).

4- Low moment for Pedro Mosquera: Mosquera is the player with more minutes at Deporís team (922) and is only one of the three men that have played in all the meetings, but heís missing the same importance of last season as he is no longer determinant. He was the player with more touches for Depor in this game (69), but the major part of the touches were short passes without importance. He only gave one pass that ended with a chance created, itís one of the reason why his combination with Borges isnít working out. 

5- Andone finally scores Florin Andone scored his first goal at Deportivo after 864 minutes with the team. It'í a terrible mark as even a player like Oriol Riera needed less time to score for the first time with Depor (599 minutes). The hope is that the fact that the Romanian has already scored can reduce the anxiety and unleash the qualities that moved to make his signing..
