DEPORTIVO IN MAY

01 May 2019
Four of the last six games on the season are played in May, two against direct rivals and the other two against teams trying to avoid demotion.

After a couple of bad months, Deportivo are now out of the promotion zone and need a solid reaction in May in order to return to the first six places. It will have a good chance in the month as two direct rivals visit the Riazor.

And, at the same time, it will visit two teams that are trying to avoid demotion. The first one is Real Zaragoza. The Aragonians have chained two straight victories and are now seven points above the pit, so they need a couple of wins in order to certify the permanence. They are the fifth worst local team in the league with 24 points added in 18 games at La Romareda.

The last five games by Zaragoza:

MATCHDAY 32 ZARAGOZA 3 GIMNÁSTIC 0
MATCHDAY 33 CADIZ 3 ZARAGOZA 3
MATCHDAY 34 ZARAGOZA 0 ALCORCÓN 2
MATCHDAY 35 ZARAGOZA 1 REUS 0
MATCHDAY 36 CÓRDOBA 0 ZARAGOZA 3

Then, Deportivo host Cádiz CF. The Andalusians are currently three points above Depor and are strong on the road, they have added 25 points in 18 away games. It’s the fifth best mark in the league. They also carry with a 3-0 advantage from the first round, so it’s highly probable that they could win a possible tie-breaker with the Galicians. They are also dragging a mark of seven straight games without defeats.

The last five games by Cádiz:

MATCHDAY 32 REUS 0 CADIZ 1
MATCHDAY 33 CADIZ 3 ZARAGOZA 3
MATCHDAY 34 LAS PALMAS 0 CADIZ 3
MATCHDAY 35 CADIZ 2 NUMANCIA 1
MATCHDAY 36 MAJADAHONDA 1 CADIZ 1

Then Depor visit CD Lugo. The Galician neighbors are currently in relegation after only been able to win one of the last nine games. They are the third worst local team in the league with 23 points added in 18 home meetings

The last five games by Lugo:

MATCHDAY 32 ALCORCON  0 LUGO 0
MATCHDAY 33 LUGO 2 OSASUNA 2
MATCHDAY 34 CORDOBA 0 LUGO 4
MATCHDAY 35 LUGO 1 GRANADA 2
MATCHDAY 36 LAS PALMAS  4 LUGO 1

May will end with RCD Mallorca visiting the Riazor. The Majorcans are currently four points above Depor and are in a good form after chaining back-to-back wins, but they have only won four times on the road, their 19 points added playing in this condition is only the 12th best mark in the league.

The last five games by Mallorca:

MATCHDAY 32 CORDOBA 3 MALLORCA 2
MATCHDAY 33 MALLORCA 1 REUS 0
MATCHDAY 34 NUMANCIA 1 MALLORCA 1
MATCHDAY 35 MALLORCA 2 MAJADAHONDA 0
MATCHDAY 36 MALAGA 0 MALLORCA 1
