Real Madrid 7 Deportivo La Coruna 1
An emphatic display, this afternoon, by Real Madrid, has given their support hope that a corner has been turned.
Although, here at Vital Real Madrid, we`re realistic enough to accept that our hopes of retaining the La Liga crown are between slim and zero, with Barcelona so far ahead, a return to form augers well for the Champions League crown the club are hoping to defend.
Against Deportivo this afternoon, Real Madrid fell a goal behind when Adrian Lopez scored and all those fears that it was going to be another of those days surfaced.
However, Real Madrid produced an emphatic response.
Nacho levelled the game up soon after Real Madrid had fallen behind before Gareth Bale, getting back to his best form, put Real Madrid ahead with a superb goal.
The Welshman then added his second of the game, making it 3-1, with a header.
The onslaught was relentless, with Luka Modric making it 4-1 with a shot from distance before Cristiano Ronaldo got back to scoring ways with a brace of his own.
With Deportivo reeling, it was left to Nacho to score his second goal of the game making it a magnificent seven for Real Madrid.
