EIGHT RED CARDS ON THIS SEASON

05 Mar 2013
Deportivo have suffered six red cards within the last eight liga matches; the Galicians represent the team that needs less fouls in order to be punished with a yellow or a red card. Itís among the countless factors affecting the team on this season.

Carlos Marchena was sent off in the past game against Rayo Vallecano after committing two fouls in a matter of seven minutes at the end of the meeting disputed at the Riazor. Therefore Deportivo had to play with one less man during the final five minutes.

Still, it was a common scene for the Blanquiazul outfit, after all they have played with at least one less player in six of the last eight matches in la liga. It is another of the factors that has affected Deportivo throughout the current season.

The true is that it seems unfair taking in mind the number of fouls committed by Deporís players compared to the other clubs. And itís that Deportivo is the club at Primera that needs the lesser number of fouls in order to be shown a yellow card or a red card, this despite the Galician side is the third club at Primera with the lesser number of fouls (308).

The statistic leaves the impression that the referees are more severe with Deportivo than with any other team at Primera. Deportivo need 3.85 fouls to receive a yellow card and 38.5 for a red card; as a way of comparison RCD Espanyol, the club with more fouls in la liga (444), need 3.93 fouls to be shown a yellow card and 55.50 to suffer an expulsion.
