HUNTING THE BEST START IN LIGA

11 Oct 2009
The era of the Super Depor seems unrepeatable, but the true is that Depor’s current numbers are following a similar path. If Lotina’s side defeats Sevilla, it will be the second best start after 7 games. Depor also targets the best start after 10 games.

Deportivo is bringing positive sensations to its fans in this start of season; Lotina’s side has already added twelve of eighteen possible points, which means the second best start of the Galician club after the first six matchdays in la liga. Now the target is to follow the same path. A victory in the next game will mean to add fifteen points in seven encounters, which will be the best mark since the 2003/2004 campaign, tournament in which Depor had an incredible mark of six wins within the first seven matchdays.

It will also mean the second best start in the history of the club after seven games, tied with the one achieved back on the season 1996/1997. However, it won’t be an easy task, because the next rival is Sevilla FC, club that’s having an impressive start, both in liga as in Champions League.

 The current Deportivo also chases the mark of the best start after ten liga games, which was achieved on the seasons 1996/1997 and 2003/2004 (22 points); to notice than during the 1996/1997 campaign Depor was still undefeated after ten matchdays. In order to break those marks, Lotina’s Depor will need to add four straight victories. It sounds difficult, but it should be noticed that after the encounter against Sevilla, Deportivo is facing more “affordable” rivals: Real Valladolid, Sporting Gijón and Getafe.
