ONE WIN IN TWENTY MATCHES

20 Oct 2010
Deportivo has only won one match within the last twenty liga encounters; the Galicians don’t know the path of the victory and the situation is starting to be alarming.

The shadow of relegation still surrounding the city of La Coruña; Deportivo and Zaragoza are the only two clubs at Primera División that haven’t added yet a victory, and that fact explains why both teams are at the bottom of the table. This is the second worst start in liga in the history of Depor, the worst one occurred on the season 1966/67, moment when the team only had two draws after the first seven matches.

But the situation of the Galicians is more depressing, because the downward spiral is coming from the past season. More precisely since March, because within the last twenty liga encounters Lotina and his men have only achieved one victory, a poor statistic that shouldn’t be despised as some players are trying to make believe. The main problem is that the team has only scored nine goals in those twenty matches, which means an average of one goal each two hundred minutes.

In other words Deportivo needs 2.22 matches in order to score a goal; that’s a negative record in the centenary history of the Galician club. To mention that Deportivo La Coruña is the second worst scorer among the big leagues in Europe, only Portuguese CS Marítimo has scored lesser goals than Lotina’s Depor (two in seven matches).

It is true that the performance of the squad in the last meeting with Osasuna meant an improvement compared to the previous six matches on the season, but it is also clear that Lotina hasn’t found yet the medicine to cure the lack of goal, something that must fixed as soon as possible if the club doesn’t want to be involved in more serious problems.
