Miss a plenty Depor!!
Racing de Santander (PrimeAran) 0 – 0 Deportivo La Coruna (Kazit)
First game of the ryman season saw both managers taking an unusual offensive approach to the game, although it was deportivo that created the first real scoring opportunity only for the racing keeper to make what could be save of the season already. Now it seemed that depor would really rue that opportunity with racing making chance after chance only for some terrible finishing to deny them. Going into injury time depor was finishing strongest and nearly stole all 3 points when the last chance of the game clipped the top of the racing crossbar and in turn leaving manager PrimeAran grateful to come away with a point. So with terrible finshing from both sides a 0 - 0 draw was played although both managers agreed that finishing is something they will both need to work on if they are to progress this season!
A kick in the right direction for Racing!
Deportivo La Coruna (Kazit) 2 – 4 Racing de Santander (PrimeAran)
Second game of the season and both managers were out to prove a point, this time deportivo lined up differently using only one striker, manager kazit trying to confuse Racing after their first game, and it totally backfired within 20 mins deportivo went 2-0 down to a rampant Racing only for captain Valeron to latch onto a scrapy corner and get his side back in the game. However this was shortlived as Racing added a third and should have added 2 more as deportivo struggled to get a grip on the game, even when manager kazit reverted to his old formation with two up top, with 30mins left on the clock instructions were given to deportivo to attack, attack, attack. Which truley seemed to work as Rikki topped off a fine move to make it 3-2. With Racing now on the edge deportivo sent wave after wave although could not find that equalizing goal. Entering the last few mins Rikki missed a fantastic opportunity to pull his side level although still seems a bit rusty from pre-season. Then the deportivo keeper Aranzubía decided to take matters in his own hands and went up for a deportivo corner disobeying manager kazits instructions, only for it to backfire and hand Racing the glorious opportunity to wrap up the game and take all 3 points.
