Tytoń, Rubén Martínez and Álex Bergantiños are pending to debut with Deportivo during the present season, while Lux and Albentosa are the only men that have disputed all the possible minutes.

With the fifth part of la liga already disputed, coach Gaizka Garitano has already used 20 of the 23 players at the first team. Two of the three men without minutes are goalkeepers: Przemysław Tytoń and Rubén Martínez, the latter is the only man at the squad that hasn’t been included in any roster.

The only field player without minutes on the season is Álex Bergantiños, who was the man with more minutes at the team some years ago and that now has lived a radical change as he was even out of the rosters in four matchdays, something that didn’t happen to him before this campaign.

Before the game with Sporting, Garitano explained the situation of the Galician midfielder, “It’s the position where the team is more reinforced. We have four very good centre midfielders, truly I am relying more in the other three. He is training well and his behaviour is exemplary and we all know that he will yield when we could need him. I’m content with Álex, but truly I am betting more in Celso, Mosquera and Guilherme. The season is long.”

Meanwhile, only two men have played all the possible minutes after the first seven matchdays: German Lux and Raúl Albentosa. There are also two men that have participated in all the games on the liga season: Florin Andone and Pedro Mosquera.

The striker was a substitute in the opening matchday with SD Eibar and was a starter in the following six games only been replaced once. In the case of the midfielder, he played the full 90 minutes in six games and entered as a substitute in the visit to Atlético Madrid.
