Carlo Ancelotti’s men have made a stuttering start to the season, going down 4-2 to Real Sociedad ahead of the international break before a 2-1 reverse against bitter rivals Atletico Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Full time at the Riazor! It has been goals galore here in this Spanish Primera Division clash ends 8-2 to Real Madrid away to Deportivo. A solid opening 20 minutes for the hosts mattered not as Madrid went into the break three goals up thanks to a Ronaldo double and a James Rodriguez wonderstrike. The hosts rallied after the break and grabbed a goal back through Medunjanin, but two from Bale, two from Javier Hernandez, and a hat trick goal from the Ronaldo sealed the comprehensive win. Madrid back in business in the league! I’m Martin Macdonald, thanks for joining us, see you next time!
