‘Deportivo a dangerous game’

Athletic Bilbao’s Ernesto Valverde isn’t letting Deportivo La Coruna’s 10 games without a win cloud his thinking. ‘It’s a dangerous game…’

Deportivo go to San Mames on Wednesday night without a victory since December 19, drawing six and losing four, but Valverde expects a difficult game regardless.

“Despite that bad run I see them playing well. They try to have possession and dominate the game, and do well on the counter-attack with fast players,” Valverde said, AS reports.

“Perhaps they’re not having the success they were at the beginning [of the season].

“Last year they came here with the utmost need and drew at the last second and at Riazor we took a step back because they pressed so much. That shows their resources, that it’s a dangerous game and we have to work well.”
