Real Madrid will look to continue impressive league form when they host Deportivo La Coruna at the Santiago Bernabeu on 10 December.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm GMT. The game will be broadcast live on Sky Sports 3 HD.


Real Madrid threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Borussia Dortmund and finish second in their Champions League group in midweek. Zinedine Zidane's side are on a 34-game unbeaten run in all competitions, equalling the club record set by Leo Beenhakker's team in 1989.

Zidane has no fresh injury concerns. Gareth Bale remains sidelined with an ankle injury.

Deportivo La Coruna ended a seven-match winless run in all competitions by thrashing Real Sociedad 5-1 at the Riazor on 5 December. The Galician club have lost their last six meetings with Real Madrid in La Liga.

Laure and Bruno Gama are both sidelined through injury for the visitors.

What managers say

Zinedine Zidane: "I don't think La Liga is decided. We're playing and happy with the results lately but we know that the road is still very long. There are plenty of games to play, lots of things we have to do to achieve what we want to achieve. The six-point advantage doesn't mean anything. We're ahead right now but that doesn't mean we're going to win the league." [via ESPN]

Gaizka Garitano: "When you go to the Bernabeu, you have to go with the right attitude or you start to lose the game long before the match even starts. The truth is that Deportivo are in dire need of points, we have not won away from home of late and all that makes this game much more important for us than for Madrid." [via El Pais]
