BREAKING MARKS

03 Dec 2009
Depor could be imposing a new personal mark of points after thirteen liga encounters, but for that the Galicians have to defeat a Barcelona that’s coming after winning the treble.

This Deportivo of Miguel Angel Lotina is at the edge of achieving marks that not even the Superdepor or the Depor that won la liga were able to reach; the current squad was close to break the mark of points for a start of season (ten matchdays), but the setback at Valladolid blocked the attempt. Now, after the consecutive wins over Atletico Madrid and Racing Santander, Depor is at the verge of achieving an historic mark: 28 points added after 13 matchdays.

Currently, Depor occupies the 5th position thanks to its eight wins plus one draw (25 points), while it has only suffered three defeats. A new victory at matchday 13 will mean to add the 71.8% of the points disputed in the competition, an unthinkable mark, because not even the most optimistic fans would have thought of this scenario when the season was starting.

The current record of points after 13 matchdays is 27, which was achieved in four opportunities: 2000-01, 1999-2000, 1996-97 and 1992-93. What still far for been matched is the record of goals scored, because right now Depor has only scored 17 times, which is among the lowest marks of the last decade.

But in order to make history, Depor will have to defeat the all mighty Barcelona FC at the Riazor, the Catalan club achieved the treble on the past season and currently is the only undefeated team at Primera División. Without doubt a very complicate mission that would have an historic reward.
