Deportivo Team News & Preview
Deportivo managed to pick up a morale-boosting 5-1 win over Real Sociedad in their last game, but it seems more like an accident at this point. The away side have been atrocious so far and have won just one of their last 19 away games in La Liga. They are 16th in the league table with just 13 points from 14 matches.
Having said that, Real Madrid cannot afford to take Deportivo lightly. The last match showed that football can be quite unpredictable. The away side will be relying on their attacking talents to pull off an upset here.
Bruno Gama and Laure are the only injury worries for the away side this weekend.
Predicted Deportivo Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): Tyton; Juanfran, Albentosa, Sidnei, Navarro; Borges, Guilherme; Gil, Colak, Babel; Andone
