DEPORTIVO IN AUGUST

04 Aug 2011
First month of competition for Depor at liga Adelante; The Galician team will have to play two matches in the period; the first one against one of the expected surprises in the competition and the other against the oldest club in Spain.

Depor debuts at Liga Adelante 2011/12 during August; there are two matches scheduled for this month. But before, the Galician team will end the pre-season with the friendly matches against Real Oviedo (today), Rayo Vallecano (August 6), Racing de Ferrol (August 8) and the Teresa Herrera match against Sevilla CF (August 14).

Then Depor visits FC Cartagena in matchday 01 at Segunda División. Cartagena is a Murcian club that ended 11th on the past Segunda season and that now it’s targeting to end among the top six clubs in the league. Right now they are the team with more signings at Segunda: 15. Among their arrivals are: defenders Josemi (RCD Mallorca), Manolo Gaspar (Málaga), Abraham Paz (Hércules), midfielder Álvaro Antón (Valladolid) and striker Iván Bolado (Racing)

New coach Paco López (former coach of Alcoyano) already knows that he will miss defender Chus Herrero (quadriceps) and midfielder Cléber Monteiro (knee ligaments) for the meeting against Depor. López has the tough task of finding the integration of all the signings made so far and also to find a replacement for striker José Verdú Nicolás ´Toche’, who scored 16 goals on the past season and that has signed for Panathinaikos FC.

Cartagena has played five friendly games on the pre-season and these were the results:

Then, Depor debuts at the Riazor hosting Recreativo de Huelva during matchday 02 of the competition. ‘Recre’ is the older club in Spain (founded in 1889), but it’s currently living a financial crisis that forced the Andalusians to go to administration. There are several doubts about the possible performance of the team in the new season, Recreativo has made nine signings, but has lost key players like Rafita, Raúl Cámara, Mora and Jesús Vázquez, this last one signed by Depor.

At the beginning the goal of new coach Álvaro Cervera is to achieve the permanence; among the signings made by the Andalusian club are: goalkeeper Manu Fernandez (Deportivo), defender Héctor Font (Xerez)
And Brazilian midfielder William Soares (Porto)

Recreativo has played three games during the pre-season and these were the results:
