PRIMERA MATCH REPORT

Primera Week 38 - 20 May 2017 (18.00 UK)
Deportivo 3 - 0 Las Palmas
Andone 4, 28, Gil 39
Estadio Municipal de Riazor

Quique Setien failed to arrest Las Palmas’ run of defeats in his curtain call on Saturday as Deportivo La Coruna ran out easy 3-0 winners.

Florin Andone got the ball rolling when he angled a daisy-cutter across Raul Lizoain, although Davy Roef – in a rare start between Depor’s sticks – had to push away Hernan Santana’s powerful drive.

In one of the goals of the season, however, Andone powered through the islanders’ defence and chipped a finish over Lizoain.

Depor scored a third goal before half-time as Ola John’s cross from the left-hand byline was promptly put away by Carles Gil, and it could’ve got even better for them, had Andone hit the target for his hat-trick after he was away in the clear.

Roef, meanwhile, was kept on his toes by Roque Mesa’s half-volley, but Las Palmas ended the game with 10 men, Hernan booked a second time for taking out Marlos Moreno.

The Galicians end the campaign in 16th, a place worse than last season, and with six less points than their previous haul of 42.

On the other hand, a run of eight losses in their last 10 sees Las Palmas cling onto 14th – three lower than 2015-16.


Hernan sent off 79 (LP)
