NOTES FROM THE GAME AT CÓRDOBA

22 Oct 2018
Depor were inferior to Córdoba, but spend leading the score for almost the entire meeting. The Galicians never felt comfortable and suffered two new expulsions.

The five notes from the game at Córdoba CF:

1- Unbalanced game: Despite Deportivo spent 91 minutes leading in the scoresheet, the true is that Córdoba CF was much better in the game. The Andalusians completed 22 shots (the highest allowed by Depor on the season) against only 5 by the Galicians. The plan of Sandoval worked, he said one day before the game that the plan was to block the rival’s game and put pressure at midfield, just like Alcorcón did it in the only defeat of Depor so far. What he didn’t count was the early goal of Deportivo and that it was going to be very hard for them to transform their shots into goals.

2- Not seizing the counterattack: The fact that Córdoba CF were trailing the major part of the game forced them to assume risks in order to tie the score, constantly there were leaving big cracks at defence when they were attacking and Depor never seized those empty spaces. Actually, the only counterattack that ended in a clear chance to score was the one led by Quique González that ended with the crossed of Carlos Fernández that went close to the post (68’)

3- Depor have a goalkeeper: Once again Dani Giménez made a great game, he was the best player in the meeting, he was the main reason why the Galicians reached the final stretch leading in the scoresheet. He made 7 saves and the only spark was to not react quicker in the play of the equalizer.

4- Quique is the top-scorer at Segunda: The strikers at Depor remain on fire. Quique González returned from his suspension and did it scoring once, it’s his seventh on the season. He is now the top-scorer at Segunda tied with Extremadura’s Enrich Gallego.

5- Two new red cards: Pablo Mari and Borja Valle were sent off in this game, now Depor have suffered five expulsions and is the team at Segunda with more red cards. The irony is that the Galicians are the fifth team with lesser fouls in the league (127). Los Blanquiazules have been protesting the referees in this start of season; both red cards in this game were polemic calls, like the expulsion of Quique against Málaga CF.
