TWO YEARS WITHOUT A COMEBACK AT PRIMERA

19 Mar 2015
Deportivo are about to complete two years without a comeback in the score during a Primera match; on this season the team has only rescued two points after been in disadvantage in sixteen opportunities.

It was April 06, 2013; Deportivo were battling to achieve the permanence at Primera during the season 2012/13. The resurrected team coached by Fernando Vázquez was coming after clinching two straight wins and was hosting Real Zaragoza at the Riazor.

It turned to be an intense game with five goals. Depor claimed an early lead, but by minute 35 they were already trailing 1-2. But Carlos Marchena scored the equalizer before half-time and an own goal in the second half allowed to clinch a 3-2 victory.

That was the last time in which Deportivo won a Primera game in which the Galicians were in disadvantage in some point of the meeting. On this league campaign the team coached by Víctor Fernández has been in disadvantage in sixteen opportunities and was only able to rescue two points.

The first opportunity was matchday 02 hosting Rayo Vallecano (August 31); the Madrilenians were winning 1-2 and a last-minute penalty scored by Isaac Cuenca allowed the Galicians to add their first point on the season.

And there was a second opportunity in which Depor added a point despite been losing in the score at some moment, though this time it didn’t leave a good taste in the mouth. It happened again at the Riazor as the Galicians were hosting Granada CF for matchday 20 (January 25).

An early goal scored by Piti lit the alarms, but Depor were already winning by half-time thanks to the goals of José Rodriguez and Lucas Pérez. However Rober Ibáñez scored the final equalizer three minutes before the final whistle (2-2). Depor were dropping two important points and extended the feeling of been a team that suffers a lot when sees itself in disadvantage.
