DEPORTIVO IN 2012

26 Dec 2012
Positive balance for Depor in the year that’s ending, though the first half of the year, with the Galician team at Segunda División, is the one allowing this positive stat. 21 wins in 43 games and a goal average of +5 is the resume of 2012.

Deportivo La Coruña played 43 official games during the year 2012 (24 at Liga Adelante, 17 at Liga BBVA and 2 in Copa Del Rey). The balance is 21 victories, 9 draws and 13 defeats, with 69 goals in favour and 64 goals allowed.

The biggest win of the team coached by José Luis Oltra was a 3-0, score repeated twice: at the Riazor Vs. CD Alcoyano (March 17) and visiting CD Numancia (May 12). Both games played for Segunda División. The biggest defeat was the 0-6 at the Calderón stadium visiting Atlético Madrid, this time at Primera (Dec 9).

Depor’s matches with the biggest number of goals were the thrilling 4-3 hosting Elche CF for Liga Adelante (Apr 22) and the 4-5 at the Riazor hosting FC Barcelona (Oct 20), while there was only one goalless game, which was last week’s home meeting before Real Valladolid playing for Liga BBVA.



The most important goal in 2012: The 2-1 over SD Huesca scored by Xisco and that brought the promotion to Primera (May 27).
The balance is positive, but also misleading, because there are two different stages with very different outcomes, and the barrier between both is marked by the promotion to Primera. In the first half of the year Deportivo played 24 matches at Segunda, and clinched an impressive mark of 19 victories, and1 draw only suffering 4 defeats.

Meanwhile, the second part of the year was totally dark. Deportivo returned to Primera División and in 17 matches, Oltra’s men only added 2 victories and 6 draws, while they suffered 9 defeats, staring the worst start of season in the history of the club.

The best way to understand the big differences between both halves in the year can be perceived analyzing the goals allowed. And it’s that Depor allowed 24 goals in the 24 matches played at Segunda, and with five games less at Primera the Blanquiazul outfit ended leaking 15 more goals (39).
