Deportivo’s stats were really poor on the season 2014/15, what marked the campaign was the streak of fourteen straight games without a win. Luckily for the Galicians the other teams also failed.

Two negative stats are marking the latest season of Deportivo at Primera División. First to all the fourteen straight matches without victories and later the fact that the Galician side only clinched seven wins in the whole league tournament.

The winless streak is the worst in the centenary history of the club. Depor defeated SD Eibar 2-0 at the Riazor (February 6) and since then it had to wait three months to see the victory again (2-0 Vs. Levante UD, May 17).  This negative period forced the team to extend the fight to survive until the last stretch of the tournament as only seven points were added in that frame.

About the low number of wins, the seven victories represent the lowest number for Depor in any league tournament since the Primera season 1946/47 (5), at the time the league was only composed by fourteen clubs. What compensated this poor stat was the high number of draws (14), which was the highest at the club since the 15 of the Primera campaign 2004/05.

An interesting stat is that three year ago Deportivo went down to Segunda despite adding 43 points; no one before had suffered the demotion after adding that number of points. Now, on this liga campaign, eight teams made lesser points, including the Galicians.

Ironically, the 35 points added by Depor on this opportunity wouldn’t have been enough to clinch the salvation in any of the previous tournaments since the league was re-stablished into a competition of twenty clubs for the campaign 1996/97.

During the season there was a big concern regarding the number of goals scored by Deportivo. The Galicians only scored 25 goals, which was the sixth worst mark in the completion and the second worst at the club on this century (the worst was 31 on the campaign 2010/11).  This lack of goals corresponds to the low number of shots (401), the fifth worst at Primera, only above Córdoba CF (396), UD Almería (394), RCD Espanyol (381) and SD Eibar (355).

The mark of goals allowed was also negative. Depor allowed 60 goals in 38 matches, this is the second worst mark on this century for Depor, only above the 70 goals conceded during the Primera campaign 2012/13.  At the same time Fabricio clinched 11 clean sheets, the eight best mark in the league. It isn’t a contradiction, what happened in that Depor allowed a large number of goals in certain games, like the 2-8 Vs. Real Madrid or the 1-4 Vs. Sevilla CF.

Depor presented decent numbers in other stats. The ball possession average was 48%, the 12th best mark in the league (FC Barcelona were the best with 69.7% and SD Eibar were the worst with 42.5%).  Then the pass success average was 74.8%, again the 12th best mark in the league (FC Barcelona were the best with 88.2% and SD Eibar were the worst with 68.2%).
