DEPORTIVO IN APRIL

28 Mar 2017
The busiest month in the season, it could mark the salvation of Deportivo, or instead it could end extending the drama to May if the permanence isn’t achieved in the next seven games.

Tricky month for Deportivo, first for the number of games to be played and later for the frequency. Seven games are played in April, three of them in a matter of six days after returning from the break, then only one is played at the middle of the month, and then things turn to be packed again with the last three meetings played in a matter of seven days.

The actions start with the visit to Valencia CF; Los Chés started to react with the arrival of coach Voro, but they have only picked one of the last nine points in dispute and are only three points above Depor, so it’s a direct rival trying to sort the permanence as soon as possible.

The last four games by Valencia:

Matchday 25 VALENCIA 1 LEGANES 0
Matchday 26 ATLETICO 3 VALENCIA 0
Matchday 27 VALENCIA 1 SPORTING 1

At the middle of the month, Deportivo play another game against a direct rival: Málaga CF. The Andalusians visit the Riazor and are having a terrible 2017, they lost four of their last five games in the competition, reason why they are currently tied in points with Depor.
