Deportivo La Coruna 0-3 Real Madrid

Real Madrid appeal second booking in Ramos sending-off

Real Madrid appeal second booking in Ramos sending-off

Real has won five tourneys in the past four months: La Liga, the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and the Spanish Super Cup.

- Toni Kroos has scored three goals in his last four games in La Liga, one fewer than he had in his previous 94 (four).

The build-up for the second goal involved more than 40 touches: "That's what we want to do, and we have the players who can do that".

After a hard opening five minutes, it was Deportivo that were looking the team more likely to make the breakthrough, with Guilherme just missing the crossbar with a strike from distance as the first period continued to gather pace.

It was Depor who started the match on the front foot and forward Florin Andone had two good opportunities to give them the lead, but he was foiled on both occasions by Real stopper Keylor Navas.

Trump ending ObamaCare subsidies would send premiums soaring: CBO
A White House spokesman says Trump is "working with his staff and his Cabinet to consider the issues raised by the CSR payments". Senate Republicans have repeatedly tried, but failed, to pass legislation that eliminates or overhauls Obama's health care law .

Real Madrid became their usual, ruthless self after these early scares, ensuring Deportivo would not get many more chances like this. This was Bale's first goal in 392 minutes of football.

Real Madrid's defender Sergio Ramos (R) clashes with Deportivo La Coruna's Swiss defender Fabian Schar during the Spanish league footbal match RC Deportivo de la Coruna vs Real Madrid CF at the Municipal de Riazor stadium in La Coruna on August 20, 2017.

It was 2-0 just seven minutes later when an unmarked Casemiro tapped home Marcelo's pinpoint cross. Although he was only shown a yellow card, it didn't matter at the end because he was sent off anyway.

Just before the game ended, Andone had a weak penalty saved, adding to his frustrations.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has equalled the La Liga record for the most red cards received after his dismissal on Sunday night.
