Vital Preview - Deportivo La Coruna v Real Madrid - 20-8-17

The 2017-18 La Liga season continues with the latest round of games. Among this upcoming schedule is one for Real Madrid against Deportivo La Coruna at Estadio Riazor on Sunday, having a 9:15pm kick off.

What will happen in this one though? Cast your vote so we know if you think it'll be all smiles or disappointment for Los Blancos come the full time whistle.

Real Madrid's defence of the La Liga crown, won for the first time since 2012 last season, begins with a trip to Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday evening.

Having defended the European Super Cup - beating Manchester United - and secured the Spanish Super Cup - obviously overcoming Barcelona - Real Madrid bid to start La Liga with a win at Deportivo.

Nothing can be taken for granted but the reality is Real WILL be expected to kick of the domestic campaign with three points as Zinedine Zidane, who seems to have the Midas touch, looks to continuing his trophy laden start to his coaching career - the Frenchman has already bagged plenty of silverware in less than two years in charge at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Based on the results, when it really mattered recently, against United and Barca, it would appear Los Blancos will again be a force to be reckoned with and take some stopping this term.
