Deportivo will play three liga games in October, all of them against rivals trying to survive in the league. The Galician team will also debut in Copa Del Rey.

October will be a tricky month for Deportivo, tricky in a double sense. First, because the team will be facing direct rivals for the permanence, something that could be a huge step forward in case of clinching positive results, but that can also end in the exit of Pepe Mel in case of continuing with the bad streak.

Secondly, because the games are packed in last stretch of the month. There’s no football in the first half of October due to the international break, but later the team will end playing three games in a frame of six days, thus due to the debut in Copa Del Rey.

The first meeting in October is the visit to SD Eibar. The Basque side is currently in relegation after losing five of the last six games in the competition. They and Real Sociedad are the worst defences in la liga after allowing 17 goals in 7 games.

The last five games by Eibar:

Matchday 03 SEVILLA 3 EIBAR 0
Matchday 04 EIBAR 1 LEGANÉS 0
Matchday 05 BARCELONA 6 EIBAR 1
Matchday 06 EIBAR 0 CELTA 4
Matchday 07 VILLARREAL 3 EIBAR 0

Then Girona FC visit the Riazor in the start of the busiest week. The newcomers had a decent start within the first three matchdays, but have only picked two of the last fifteen points in dispute, for this reason they ae currently one point below Deportivo.

The last five games by Girona:

Matchday 03 ATHLETIC 2 GIRONA 0
Matchday 04 GIRONA 0 SEVILLA 1
Matchday 05 LEGANÉS 0 GIRONA 0
Matchday 06 GIRONA 0 BARCELONA 3
Matchday 07 CELTA 3 GIRONA 3

October ends with a double meeting against UD Las Palmas; first the Canarians visit the Riazor playing for Copa Del Rey, three days later Depor will visit them playing in liga. They are also above Deportivo at the standings after clinching two wins that were followed by three straight defeats.

The last five games by Las Palmas:

Matchday 03 MALAGA 1 LAS PALMAS 3
Matchday 05 SEVILLA 1 LAS PALMAS 0
Matchday 06 LAS PALMAS 0 LEGANÉS 2
