DEPORTIVO IN FEBRUARY

31 Jan 2019
Interesting month with Depor visiting two direct rivals for the promotion, while the two home meetings are against teams trying to survive at Segunda.

Deportivo will play four games in February, the interesting things is that the two games that will be disputed at the Riazor are against teams in the battle for the permanence, while the visits are against direct rivals trying to clinch the promotion.

All starts this weened with the visit of CD Tenerife to the Riazor. The Canarians  had a poor starter that led to the exit of Joseba Etxeberria; ex-Depor Oltra landed for the rescue there on matchday 06, he also had problems, but the team is starting to react after winning two of the last four games and is currently four points above the pit.

The last five games by Tenerife:     

Matchday 20 TENERIFE 1 GRANADA 1
Matchday 21 TENERIFE 2 ELCHE 1
Matchday 22 OVIEDO 1 TENERIFE 0
Matchday 23 TENERIFE 2 GIMNASTIC 0
Matchday 24 TENERIFE 0 MALAGA 0

Then Depor will visit Granada CF, the current leader of the league have spent nine games without losing and it’s vital for Deportivo to get something there, not only for been two point away from them, but also for the particular series after the victory in the first round. The Andalusians only lost once at home during this season (1-2 Vs. Sporting)  

The last five games by Granada:    

Matchday 20 TENERIFE 1 GRANADA 1
Matchday 21 GRANADA 1 ALBACETE 1

Matchday 24 GRANADA 0 EXTREMADURA 0

And from facing the first place, Depor will then host the last place at the standings. This since Gimnástic Tarragona visit the Riazor at the middle of the month. The Catalans have shown some signs of reaction with the arrival of coach Enrique Martín, but they remain as the last place despite winning two of their last six meetings in the league.
