Captain Álex Bergantiños is aware of the difficulty of the upcoming meeting with CD Lugo, but at the same time the midfielder believes that Deportivo is able to win the remaining four games in the league.

Álex Bergantiños addressed the media before Thursday’s training, he started explaining his physical problems during the week, "I feel much better nw. We did a test due to a small puncture and today I hope to make part of the training session with the team, to see the evolution. Yesterday I didn’t train as a precaution and now we will see how I’m doing movements on the field and with the ball."

The midfielder is aware of the importance of the upcoming game with CD Lugo, "It's fundamental for both teams. For us it’s very important and we take it as a preliminary phase to reach that promotion playoff. I could not assess which team is playing for more. We are both in a borderline situation with different objectives. The sporting importance of the meeting is similar for both although the final goal is different."

The Galician player believes that the team is capable of winning the remaining four games in liga, "I see the team capable of achieving four victories in these four matchdays. We respect our rivals as much as possible and we know that it will not be easy, because this league holds surprises every week. We only think about winning in Lugo. We come in an ascending line after adding seven of the last nine points in play and we will fight to the end. After the game on Sunday we will see what our situation is at the standings. Being involved in playoff positions is a very important stimulus for us, but we can only think of Lugo."

He was thanking the fans for the massive attendance planned for the Anxo Carro, "It's a close and comfortable trip for our fans. It’s an important meeting for us and above all for those of us here. In my case I have very good friends in Lugo and I’m looking forward to face them and see your fans in a significant number in a match like that. "

Finally, Álex was warning of the characteristics of CD Lugo, "It’s a rival with good individualities. They are in the inertia of allowing more goal than they would like, but I think it may be because of the situation at the standings, and they have the ability to score goals and it’s a team with good players who can make a difference.”
