THE MYSERIES OF DEPORTIVO

19 Feb 2009
Deportivo continues to show its worst face playing away from the Riazor. Lotina’s side has only won twice in Europe playing in this condition, while it has only achieved three liga wins so far. Actually the Galicians already suffered seven big scores only on the present season.

Definitely, Deportivo still in debt with its fans when the squad plays away from the Riazor. And it’s that Lotina’s team has only added three victories in la liga plus two in Europe playing as a visitor. But the worst thing is the impression left in those encounters, because in the major part of the encounters the squad seemed flat and lacking ideas.

To add that seven of the twenty matches played away from home on this season ended with humiliating scores, from the 0-2 at the Brann Stadion against Brann Bergen to the 0-5 at the Camp Nou against Barcelona, without forgetting the 0-3 against  CSKA Moscow, the 1-4 at Atl?©tico Madrid or the 2-4 at Valencia.

Mere exceptions are the exhibitions against Getafe at the Alfonso P?©rez coliseum (2-1) or the brilliant game against Real Betis at the Luis de Lopera (3-0). Actually, only the 34% of the points added in la liga (12 of 35) were achieved playing away from home, a simple fact that demonstrates that Deportivo still depending of the results achieved at the Riazor in order to keep its aspirations for the rest of the season.
