Not too much conclusions from the friendly game played at Vista Alegre, Víctor Fernández tested two formations mixing starters and substitutes. Borja and Cardoso scored the goals.

Since there is no game on the weekend due to the international break, Deportivo arranged a friendly game against Tercera club SD Órdenes. The match took place on Wednesday at the Vista Alegre field. Coach Víctor Fernández mixed normal starters with the presence of substitutes, including centre-back Borja Lopez, who hasn’t debuted yet in liga.

Also unusual was the starting formation: a 5-3-2. There were three centre-back, including Manuel Pablo, who joined Insua and Borja. Laure and Canella covered the sides, while Fabricio was the keeper. Juan Dominguez was the lonely centre midfielder. Lucas and Hélder Costa attacked by the flanks, while Cuenca and Toché were the attackers.

The pace was low as it was expected from a friendly game; Depor had the initiative in the first part and enjoyed two clear chances within the first 30 minutes. Both were opportunities for Juan Domínguez, his first shot hit the post and the second was saved by local goalie Dani Pérez. Toché had another opportunity, but he sent the ball wide.

For the second half Víctor made four changes, three of them were to allow the entry of the Fabril’s players picked for the game. In this way Álvaro Queijeiro, Miguel Cardoso, David Gómez and Oriol Riera replaced Lucas, Pablo Insua, German Lux and Toché.

The changes meant to switch the draw into a 4-2-3-1. The first goal in the game came in a corner-kick action, Cuenca released the cross and Borja López found the ball inside the area to score from close range. The second goal arrived soon as Cardoso fired a rocket from the edge of the area that went in. Juanfran and Álex played for the final fifteen minutes, frame in which the locals held on before a Depor without a hurry..

(5-3-2) Lux (David Gómez 46’) - Laure, Insua (Cardoso 46’), Borja, Manuel Pablo (Juanfran 75'), Canella – Lucas (Queijeiro 46’),  Juan Domínguez (Álex Bergantiños 75'), Hélder Costa - Cuenca, Toché (Oriol Riera 46’)
