Very intense first half with much running but also aggressive fouls by both sides. The first goal came in minute 23, as Murcia scored fantastic goal after a free kick from the right side. Instead throwing the ball for head shot, Murcia’s player pass the ball to the edge of 16 meters where Dorca shot it on a volley and scored a goal. 0:1 for Murcia.
Next minute, Murcia goalkeeper Casto made parade and hardly save the goal.
In minute 30, there was a doubtful situation in Murcia penalty area after Culio was fouled and it was clear penalty but the referee stayed soundless. 37-minute fast attack of Depor but Borja Baston missed the target. Depor had several opportunities at the end of the first half. Firstly, it was Borja who headed a ball from Culio, but it misses the target. Than Bergantinos made a shot from 16 meters and the last chance was a free kick but Casto had his day at Riazor.
The second half, Deportivo La Coruna had the ball possession, but they missed ideas and never found a crack in Murcia defense. In 59 minute, there was a big chance for Insua to score his second goal for this season, but he miss the target after an action of Arizmendi and precise throw. In 78 minute, second chance for Borja but it was not his day.
In the last minutes of the game, Depor pushed hard but Murcia was well placed and never gives a chance to gray Depor to find the equaliser. Conclusion Deportivo is still not playing its game as it did on away meetings. They have ball possession at Riazor, just like the game with Cordoba, but never find a way to score goals.
6 points for Depor in 4 games. The next game will be played against Cordoba in Copa Del Rey.
