Real Madrid to win to nil @ 5/4 with Paddy Power

Real Madrid are approaching full-on crisis mode ahead of this weekend’s tie against Deportivo. Toni Kroos admitted that their La Liga objective now has to be securing a Champions League spot after succumbing to a 1-0 defeat at home to Villarreal a few days ago.


Now 19 points clear of their bitter rivals, Barcelona no longer have to worry about them threatening their lead. What they and will do is enjoy the deterioration of a Madrid side tipped for big things after convincing wins in the Super Cup back in August. Things could certainly get worse before they get better.

Madrid managers have been sacked for a lot less than the offerings of Zinedine Zidane this season. The French legend has rightly been cut slack because of all he’s done for the club, as a player and as a coach. But he can’t live on former glories forever. Ultimately, his future will hinge on next month’s Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain. Assuming he’s steadied the ship by then, Zidane will be expected to overcome one a huge contender for the trophy.


While there are quite a few matches between now and then, Madrid would be expected to win their next match – even on current form. They’ve won all five of their last encounters with Deportivo – netting at least three goals in four of those wins – and the visitors, nesting in the relegation zone, will arrive at the Bernabeu expecting another hiding.

The Spanish media report that Cristiano Ronaldo wants a new contract in the wake of details of Lionel Messi’s contract with Barcelona leaking. The Argentine genius is as clever in negotiations as he is on the pitch and is raking in more than €100 million annually. Ronaldo wants Madrid to match that but is in no position to be making demands considering he’s got four La Liga goals.

Expect him to find some joy this weekend.
