DEPORTIVO IN MARCH

06 Mar 2018
Three more games in March for Deportivo, three more chances to conquer the first victory in 2018 as the team tries desperately to avoid demotion.

Deportivo remain winless in 2018 and also remain in the drop zone, it has been a poor season for the Galicians and they will have three challenges in March in order to pave the road to salvation, if not they will continue to suffer.

The first match is the visit to Girona FC, one of the pleasant surprises on this liga season. The Catalans are currently seventh and with big options to take part of the next Europa League, an amazing fact taking in mind this is their first year at the elite. They have chained five straight wins at home, which included a clean sheet in each of these meetings; actually Girona FC haven’t allowed a goal at home in 2018.

The last five games by Girona:

Matchday 23 SEVILLA 1 GIRONA 0
Matchday 24 GIRONA 3 LEGANÉS 0
Matchday 25 BARCELONA 6 GIRONA 1
Matchday 26 GIRONA 1 CELTA 0
Matchday 27 VILLARREAL 0 GIRONA 2

The second game in the month is a against a direct rival for the permanence: UD Las Palmas visiting the Riazor. Paco Jémez is the new coach of the Canarians but the reaction isn’t coming as they have only added three of the fifteen points in dispute. A positive result will be important as Depor won the game in the first round, which means to secure the tie-breaker in case of ending the season with the same number of points.

The last five games by Las Palmas:

Matchday 22 LAS PALMAS 1 MALAGA 0
Matchday 23 ATHLETIC 0 LAS PALMAS 0
Matchday 24 LAS PALMAS 1 SEVILLA 2
Matchday 25 LEGANÉS 0 LAS PALMAS 0
Matchday 26 LAS PALMAS 1 BARCELONA 1

March will end for Deportivo with the visit to Atlético Madrid. After the first international break of the year, the Galicians visit the Metropolitano stadium, place where the Madrilenians remain undefeated on this season (7 wins and 4 draws). Atlético are currently the runners-up in liga and their recent defeat with FC Barcelona cut a streak of eight straight victories in all competitions.

The last five games by Atlético:

Matchday 24 ATLETICO 2 ATHLETIC 0
UEFA EL ATLETICO 1 COPENHAGEN 0
Matchday 25 SEVILLA 2 ATLETICO 5
Matchday 26 ATLETICO 4 LEGANES 0
