Deportivo and Coruxo will play today in O Vao (12:00 hours) a match against the dog. A duel marked by the needs of each other to take off before the airport closes. The hosts only add ten points and a loss would be a firm step towards an early conviction. Even less margin have the Coruña, involved in a free fall after accumulating six games without winning and four without seeing the door. Terrible data for a team whose only goal is to move up and who visits Coruxo with the rope around his neck. Now or never for a Deportivo that saw the owner, Abanca, at the close of the market, begin to lose faith by putting an end to the free spending bar.
Rubén de la Barrera, who has not known victory since his arrival, focuses his efforts on transmitting the well-known message of ‘match by match’. An attempt to focus their players so that they do not get distracted by looking up, because the horizon indicates that the only safe path for Deportivo is to achieve a plenary session in the remaining six days. The coach from A Coruña will seek to take the first step against Coruxo by betting on the block that tied against Unionistas (0-0) with the only novelty of Mujaid. Against the leader, the Blue and Whites improved their game and deserved something more, but without bragging. This tiny green sprout needs to be watered with dots, because it is still unclear if that was a collective step forward or the simple fact of recovering Keko and Uche Agbo.
Factor O Vao
Deportivos’ extreme need will not be the only factor that Coruxo will have to try to punish the Blue and Whites. Míchel Alonso’s men have their best weapon in their stadium, as it certifies that all the points that have (10) have been added as a local. A strength also endorsed with a streak of three consecutive victories (Guijuelo, Pontevedra and Salamanca). All a warning for a Deportivo that can find this morning with a grass very damaged by the last storms. In fact, today heavy rain and strong wind are expected at the time of the game, something that can significantly influence the match and even the approach of both technicians. The fresh legs of the people from Vigo will be in the signings. That of the Coruña, on the bench with Diego Villares and Rayco.
