DEPORTIVO IN OCTOBER

02 Oct 2019
Depor are already under pressure after a bad start to the league competition. The team faces two candidates to the first two places, plus consecutive meetings against the teams that were demoted with the Galicians two seasons ago.

Tough month for Deportivo, the Galicians will face five games on October, two against teams trying to be at the top, other two against tormented clubs that were recently at Primera and ends the period with a recently promoted club from Segunda B.

All starts this Thursday with Depor visiting Girona FC. The Catalans are one of the favourite sides to clinch the direct promotion, but currently they are at mid-table after a poor run of three defeats within the last four meetings.

The last four games of Girona:

Matchday 05 CADIZ 2 GIRONA 0
Matchday 06 ALMERIA 3 GIRONA 1
Matchday 07 GIRONA 1 LAS PALMAS 0
Matchday 08 HUESCA 1 GIRONA 0

Then, On Sunday, Deportivo return to the Riazor in order to face UD Almeria. The Andalusians suffered a radical change during the summer, a rich owner bought the club and now they are targeting the direct promotion. They suffered the first defeat of the season this weekend and are currently second at the standings.

The last four games of Almeria:

Matchday 05 LAS PALMAS 0 ALMERIA 3
Matchday 06 ALMERIA 3 GIRONA 1
Matchday 07 RAYO VALLECANO 1 ALMERIA 1
Matchday 08 ALMERIA 1 CADIZ 2

After these meetings, Depor will face the two clubs that were demoted with the Galicians two seasons ago. The first game is the visit to UD Las Palmas. The Canarians didn’t start well after a series of problems during the summer, but have won two of the last three games, though they are only two points above Depor.

The last four games of Las Palmas:

Matchday 05 LAS PALMAS 0 ALMERIA 3
Matchday 06 LAS PALMAS 1 SPORTING 0
Matchday 07 GIRONA 1 LAS PALMAS 0
Matchday 08 LAS PALMAS 3 ALBACETE 2

Then Depor host Málaga CF. It was a traumatic summer for Los Boquerones. The salary cap hit them hard and they barely have a competitive squad to face the league. The Andalusians have the same number of points than Depor and live the same streak as they don’t win since matchday 01.

The last four games of Málaga:

Matchday 05 MIRANDES 1 MALAGA 1
Matchday 06 RACING 4 MALAGA 0
Matchday 07 ALBACETE 1 MALAGA 0
Matchday 08 MALAGA 0 SPORTING 0

October will end with the visit to Racing Santander. The Cantabrians are back at the second tier after four seasons at Segunda B. They are only one point above Deportivo and have also only won one meeting.

The last four games of Racing:

Matchday 05 RAYO VALLECANO 2 RACING 0
Matchday 06 RACING 4 MIRANDES 0
Matchday 07 SPORTING 1 RACING 1
Matchday 08 RACING 0 NUMANCIA 0
