What a game at Riazor!
A crucial game to boost moral of the players and fans as well.
Deportivo La Coruna won the game against Sporting Gijon thanks to sacrafice and aim that the team had since the beginning of the game.
Not that Gijon weren't playing good, but they seemed satisfied with a point in their pocket since they scored and narrowed result in 66 minute.
The hero of the night was Ryan Babel
Babel came from the bench in 69 min. and replaced tired Marlos Moreno who also had a decent performance.
As time was going, it seemed that the game is doomed to another tasteless draw. Depor created chances, but the visiting defence and especially Ivan Cuellar, the visiting goalkeeper, were blocking all attempts.
And then in 92 just before the referee blowing the final whistle, Emre Colak passed a ball to Babel who firstly endured a rival and then fired a strong low shot from about 20 meters that hit the post and entered the goal.
It was complete game with a lot of opportunities, but at the end it was deserved.
Deportivo 2 - 1 Sporting Gijon
