Deportivo La Coruna Look to Dodge Relegation in Final Three Weeks of 2014 – 2015 La Liga Play
In many ways, the Spanish La Liga is the only major football division left that is still providing excitement and unpredictability. Other leagues are all but foregone conclusions at this point. Chelsea are guaranteed victors in the English Premier League; Bayern Munich are headed toward their third straight title in the German Bundesliga (and their 25th overall); Juventus will claim the Italian Serie A; PSV Eindhoven will win the Dutch Eredivisie; even the French Ligue 1, which isn’t quite decided yet, is strongly expected to end with Paris Saint Germain on top. The 2014 – 2015 La Liga, though, is still ratcheting up the tension, whether you’re fan in a Real Madrid shirt, an FC Barcelona kit, or a Deportivo La Coruna jersey.
Indeed, the Spanish top flight division is still a place where anything could happen—even with just three games left to go until the end of the season. Barcelona and Real Madrid are doing battle at the top of the table, separated by just two points in the standings: either could win the 2014 – 2015 league title. The bottom of the table is equally undecided, with Deportivo La Coruna sitting on the edge of the red zone and aiming to avoid relegation with strong performances in these final three weeks of football.

2014 – 2015 La Liga Standings
Regardless of which Deportivo La Coruna jersey you choose, you’ll want to grab yours soon. The next three weeks will be pivotal to determining whether the Blue and Whites play next year in the Premier Division, or in the Segunda Division. Who knows? By rooting for the soccer squad today, you might be able to push fate in the former direction.
The La Coruna squad certainly need a bit of fan support at the moment. Right now, with 35 games played, the football club is in 18th place on the standings table. They’ve won 6 games, drawn 12, and lost 17, for an overall point total of 30.
Needless to say, that’s not a great record—especially in a division as competitive as the Spanish La Liga. The good news, though, is that the wearers of the Deportivo La Coruna home shirt 2014 – 2015 still have hopes of escaping the red zone. The club is only one point behind Eibar on the standings table, and only two points back from Almeria. With a few wins to close the soccer season, the Blue and Whites could easily leap into 16th or 17th place and dodge the relegation bullet.
The Blues and Whites kept themselves alive this past weekend by avoiding a loss against Villarreal. Likely to finish the 2014 – 2015 season as the sixth best team in Spain’s top flight, Villarreal were strongly favored to beat Deportivo at Saturday’s home game. After all, the last time these two teams met—in a December 21st away fixture—fans in the Deportivo La Coruna jersey were forced to watch their team suffer a 0-3 defeat.
But when the Blue and Whites donned the Deportivo La Coruna home shirt 2014 – 2015, they looked like a different team than they had in that December game. With the home field advantage on their side, the La Coruna squad actually beat Villarreal in terms of possession time, and put together a number of impressive offensive surges.
The away side still scored first, with a 48-minute goal from defender Jaume Costa. However, Deportivo’s Celso Borges equalized the score just two minutes later, giving home fans a reason to cheer. It was enough to earn the Blue and Whites a surprising draw in the game, and a single point in the La Liga standings.
Deportivo La Coruna have still gone 13 games without a win, a trend they will have to break in the next week or two if they are going to escape the red zone. The soccer club’s remaining matches this season include an away game with Athletic Bilbao, a home fixture against Levante, and a season-ending match at Barcelona. The Barca game will almost certainly be a loss, so wins against Bilbao and Levante are essential.
