Cordoba vs Deportivo by JerryDrake
Two different situations for this game: on one side Cordoba started 2014 with 2 wins and 1 draw and obtained 7 points out of 9. On the other side Deportivo drew the first two games in 2014 and lost at home against Las Palmas 1-2. With these results Cordoba are the best team in their league in this first weeks of the year.
Cordoba today will try to win and reach Deportivo in the table, now leading together with Sporting Gijon with 36 points. I am confident that Cordoba will be motivated while Deportivo could suffer the fact that the President has resigned after 25 years, the longest mandate in Spanish football history.
Deportivo will miss two defenders: Marchena 15/2 and Manuel Pablo 19/0 together with striker Arizmendi 15/1. Cordoba will have two players back (Caballero and Luso) while Pedro Sanchez is injured and not avaible.
At the beginning of November Cordoba were in a similar situation when they hosted Sporting Gijon and played a good game which they were leading 2-1 until the last minute when Sporting scored the equalizer. I think that this time Cordoba will get the three points and reach the first places of the table.
Cordoba: Saizar 22/-24, Campabadal 6/0, Iago Bouzon 15/1, Raul Bravo 14/0, Samuel 17/0; Nieto 2/0, Luso 19/0, Abel 21/3, Lopez Silva 21/1, Caballero 21/5, Xisco 17/7.
Deportivo: Lux 22/-16, Laure 19/0, Kaká 10/0, Insua 20/2, Luisinho 15/1, Alex Bergantiños 21/0, Nuñez 10/0, Juan Carlos 18/1, Juan Dominguez 21/2, Rudy 18/0, Luis Fernandez 22/5
Out: Pedro Sanchez (Cordoba), Marchena, Arizmendi, Manuel Pablo, Toché (Deportivo La Coruna)
