Deportivo La Coruna and CDMirandes played goalless game at Riazor in a game that should have bring the needed peace to Deportivo after a mini serie with positive results.
I believe that several players at Depor are still in process of adaptation. Besides, we still miss players like Marchena who possess a lot of authority on the field. Arizmendi was missing this game, and we still wait to see capabilities of Antonio Nunez who should be ready to play after two weeks.
However, those players on the field should be able to beat Mirandes before a large crowd who came significantly cheer the locals. For now, it is sure that Depor performances depend on whether they play at home or away. At Riazor, it looks like the team does not have punch, it fears and misses good opportunities like the one of Juan Carlos who missed clear goal.
On the other side, CD Mirandes was well positioned and rocky them, who was able to look scarier at attack than the locals. Borja Baston had two opportunities in which he missed the target and it was not his best day.
Rudy was electric and always create trouble up-front, but his best play in which he eluded three rivals was missed by Juan Carlos who played just too bad for a team like Deportivo. Another good chance for Deportivo came through a set piece, in which Alex Bergantinos just touched the ball with his feed, and it turns to be an uncomfortable situation Dani Jimenez, the goalkeeper of Mirandes who touched the ball and then it hit the crossbar.
Mirandes always looked dangerous in this meeting, and could even won the game in the last minutes but the truth is that they were more focused on defense and succeeded in their intentions.
Nothing else could be said, in a gray day for Deportivo and well positioned rival, that a scoreless draw at the end.
