Deportivo La Coruña once again pulled themselves above the drop zone with today's 1-1 draw against Real Betis. Their margin is slim though with only a single point between themselves, Celta Vigo and Real Zaragoza.
Depor have not lost in their last six matches -- four wins, two draws -- a run that has moved them from the very bottom of the league back into survival contention. Betis remain in a likely European spot in Malaga remain banned, but are four points out of a guaranteed place.
Riki fired Depor ahead just seven minutes into the match receiving a pass from Bruno Gama and sending a shot top corner past Adrián. Depor continued the pressure and came close twice to doubling their lead but Adrián denied RIki on a shot from the edge of the area and Gama sent a good chance over the crossbar.
Jorge Molina pulled the visitors even just four minutes after the halftime break, beating Daniel Aranzubía from short range.
