In the duel between the two in the first round, Dépor took the three points from Cerro del Espino thanks to goals from Quiles and Miku. Today neither of them will be available.

The abc of Deportivo – Rayo Majadahonda

  • Exploitation: Rayo Majadahonda is one of the teams that generates the least danger in this First RFEF. And yet, he already has 36 goals and occupies a creditable second place. The people of Madrid make the most of their arrivals in the rival area, which are usually generated with a direct and in-depth game.
  • Battle of ‘Hectors Hernandez’: Diego Aguirre’s injury ensures the presence of Héctor Hernández on Dépor’s left-back for another day. On the opposite side, a namesake of the herculean player will be one of the big threats. With 9 goals, Héctor Hernández del Rayo is the top scorer of his team. However, despite these figures, he does not have, far from it, a guaranteed place in Abel Gómez’s eleven.
  • Trust: In a vibrant game, with a comeback included, Rayo won the three points in their duel last day against Unionistas (4-3). “You have to continue on that line, the confidence when you win is much greater. The competition within the group is greater and it is important”, commented the visiting coach. In the blue and white case, it remains to be seen if Borja Jiménez’s men have forgotten the setback at Balaídos, which undoubtedly had an inverse effect on their confidence.
