Deportivo will play against SC Braga and CD Lugo in the first two games arranged for the pre-season. The Teresa Herrera will be a one-game tournament as la liga will start earlier than in the previous campaign.

The club confirmed the rival for the Teresa Herrera and also its participation in the Emma Cuervo trophy. These are the first two friendly games arranged for the pre-season stage. Deportivo is pending to define seven or eight more games for the pre-season.

Ribadeo FC (Tercera División) organizes the Emma Cuervo trophy, and for the 64th edition they have invited Deportivo and Segunda club CD Lugo. The game will be played on July 25 at the Pepe Barrera stadium (19h30 CET).

It should be the first or the second friendly in the pre-season for Deportivo, before the Galicians will start to train at Abegondo in the first week of July and later will complete a stage at Hotel & golf club Guitiriz between July 6 & 17.

About the Teresa Herrera, the 70th edition of the tournament will be played in a format of only one game. The rival is Portuguese club SC Braga (August 8, 20h00 CET). The reason why the tournament will only have two participants is that the kick-off in la liga has been advanced compared to previous years, actually this is going to be the last friendly game for Depor before the debut on the new campaign.

It’s the second straight pre-season stage with Deportivo facing SC Braga, last year the Galicians visited the AXA stadium and lost 1-0 (August 02, 2014), now The Minho Warriors will visit the Riazor. In the case of CD Lugo, the last meeting with the Galician neighbors during a pre-season stage took place on August 1, 2012 with Depor winning 0-1 playing at the Anxo Carro stadium.
