10 YEARS OF THE CENTENARIAZO

06 Mar 2012
Today Deportivo La Coruña celebrates ten years of the historic ‘Centenariazo’, the second Copa Del Rey title of the club celebrated during the centenary birthday party of Real Madrid.

Deportivo is celebrating today ten years from one of the major successes in the history of the club: the second title in Copa Del Rey, a triumph that was bigger as it was achieved, against all the odds, playing before the mighty Real Madrid, at its own stadium, and during the celebration of its 100 years. That’s the reason why this match is remembered as the Centenariazo.

The best part is that Depor deserved the victory as it was the better side before a Real Madrid that seemed intimidated by the triumphalist atmosphere at the Santiago Bernabéu. It were also the golden years of Deportivo, period in which the team of Javier Irureta was a leading force at the Spanish la liga and even showed itself at the UEFA Champions League. This is a little tribute to all the players, coaches and fans that lived that moment.
