PLAYER OF NOVEMBER: GUARDADO

16 Dec 2008
Andres Guardado is RCDLC.com's Player of the month for November, thus taking his second POM award this season. The Mexican received three Man of the Match awards (MOM) from the 6 games disputed during the month, as well as one 2nd place and two 3rd place awards. In this way, the Mexican featured in the top 3 of each game played in November

A November to Remember
After a torrid time in October, Deportivo started November in the best possible way: winning 3-0 away from home against Real Betis. Both Depor’s wingers, Lafita and Guardado, proved to be the best players in this game. Lafita won the MOM for this match, thanks largely to his impressive brace against the Andalusian club. Guardado came a close second in the game.

Guardado’s first MOM award came in the next home encounter against RCD Espanyol (1-0). It proved once again to be a game in which Depor’s wingers shone the most, this time Guardado took the gold and Lafita the silver. Guardado scored his first goal of the season in this encounter, a smart close range volley into the bottom corner, as well as Depor's first goal in a normal play in La Liga.

His second award came in the only defeat for Depor in the month: 4-1 Vs Atletico Madrid. It was a disappointing match for Depor, who seemed to be outclassed in all departments. Despite Guardado's efforts, Depor suffered a heavy 4-1 defeat against the Madrilenian team. Filipe got the late consolation goal in this game, his second goal for the club.

Guardado's final MOM award came in the impressive win at home against Feyenoord Rotterdam in the UEFA Cup. Guardado conquered the 3rd goal in a game in which the Riazor witnessed the return of Roy Makaay to La Coru?±a.
