STILL SEARCHING FOR A TOP-SCORER

10 Dec 2009
Deportivo is one of the three teams at Primera División that’s missing a real top-scorer, currently six Depor’s players are tied with two goals in their tally, three of them are the strikers Lassad, Adrián and Riki.

Lotina’s Deportivo is completing a solid season in the Spanish la liga, but still suffering the same old problems related to be scoring the goals. The Galician team is currently tenth in terms of goals scored and is one of the three teams at Primera División that doesn’t have a front-man leading the scoring department.
 
Giant clubs Valencia, Barcelona, Sevilla and Real Madrid currently have the clear figure of a Pichichi that’s leading their attacking efforts, but even other clubs will lower aspirations are leaded by a real goal-scorer, that’s the case of Osasuna that has finally found a reference in attack with ex-Depor Walter Pandiani. Even troubled UD Almeria possesses a similar figure with Kalu Uche

The other three teams haven’t found yet a Pichichi at their squads, these clubs are Malaga FC, CD Xérez, and Deportivo. The first two are living in relegation, while Depor is targeting the Champions League zone. Midfielders Duda and Edinho are the best scorers at Malaga with two, while nobody at Xérez has scored more than one goal.

Meanwhile, Deportivo is having six players with two goals scored: Filipe, Colotto, Juca, Lassad, Riki and Adrián. That’s the key for Lotina’s team, because the high distribution of the goals is what’s helping Deportivo to be comfortably living in the European zone, but the situation also invites to think what would happen if Lotina could have a top-scorer at his squad.
