Deportivo vs Real Madrid 21/8/2017
Real Madrid seem unstoppable at this time and will be looking to get their title defence off to a great start at Deportivo. Los Blancos have won all eight previous meetings with Deportivo, including an emphatic 6-2 win here back in April. For once, the spotlight will be on the rising talent Marco Asensio, who has shown his fortitude in scoring long-range goals. He scored two of those in Real’s 5-1 aggregate
demolition of Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup. Cristiano Ronaldo will not feature as he serves the second of his five-game ban for a push on the referee in the first leg of the Super Cup.
