DEPORTIVO IN FEBRUARY

30 Jan 2016
A winless Deportivo in 2016 face an accessible calendar in the second month of the year. All the rivals are currently below the Galicians. Besides, three of the five games are played at the Riazor.

Things didn’t start so well for Depor in 2016, in January the team was eliminated from Copa Del Rey and only picked 2 of the 12 points disputed in liga. Now, in February, Víctor’s Deportivo have the big chance to redeem and recover the lost ground with five meetings, three of them at the Riazor, and all of them against teams currently in a worse position.

It all start on Monday with Rayo Vallecano visiting the Riazor. The Madrilenians just left the pit after beating RC Celta (3-0) and before a meritorious 2-2 at Valencia CF, but previously they spent two months without a victory and suffering big humiliations like the 2-10 at Real Madrid.

The last four games of Rayo Vallecano:

Matchday 19 LEVANTE 2 RAYO 1
COPA ATLETICO 3 RAYO 0
Matchday 20 VALENCIA 2 RAYO 2
Matchday 21 RAYO 3 CELTA 0

Then Depor visit a team in a similar situation: Sporting Gijón. The Asturians just clinched a big win hosting Real Sociedad (5-2), but before they chained four straight losses and a negative steak of only one point in six matches, for this reason they are currently in relegation and they desperately need the points.

The last four games of Sporting:

Matchday 18 SPORTING 1 GETAFE 2
Matchday 19 VILLARREAL 2 SPORTING 0
Matchday 20 REAL MADRID 5 SPORTING 1
Matchday 21 SPORTING 5 REAL SOCIEDAD 1

Real Betis is the third rival in the month, the second visiting the Riazor. Like the previous cases it is a team that clinched a good result during the last two weeks, but that before it had a terrible run. The just drew before Villarreal (0-0) and Real Madrid (1-1), but before they suffered four straight losses and misses the victory since December 2 (2-0 Vs. Sporting Gijón). They are four points above the pit, but Pepe Mel was already fired and his substitute is Juan Merino.

The last four games of Betis:

Matchday 19 GETAFE 1 BETIS 0
COPA SEVILLA 4 BETIS 0
Matchday 20 VILLARREAL 0 BETIS 0
Matchday 21 BETIS 1 REAL MADRID 1

Then Deportivo visit RCD Espanyol. Another team trying to avoid problems, Sergio was fired and Constantin Gâlcă was hired, but things haven’t changed as the team is winless within the last seven games (5 in liga and 2 in Copa Del Rey). Like the case of Betis, they are only four points above the pit

Matchday 19 EIBAR 2 ESPANYOL 1
COPA ESPANYOL 0 BARCELONA 2
Matchday 20 GETAFE 3 ESPANYOL 1

February ends for Deportivo with the home game against Granada CF. Again a rival with a big result lately, but that before it had a terrible run. The Andalusians are only two points above relegation and were trashed in Copa by Valencia (agg. 0-7). Coach José Ramón Sandoval was about to be fired, but his team won the last game before Getafe CF and, for now, he still in command of the team.
