...
53' Ronaldo slips Marcelo through on the left channel, and the Brazilian hammers in a low cross that narrowly evades Mayoral sliding in. Real Madrid firmly on top at the moment.

...
50' WHAT A CHANCE! Kroos sends a superb diagonal over the top to Carvajal, who controls brilliantly and then sends a low cross. Schar and Ronaldo are on hand to contest for the tap-in but CR7 fouls the Depor defender instead of focusing on the ball.

Typical of his season.

...
48' Edu Exposito comes on to replace Pedro Mosquera who limps off holding his hamstring.
...
47' Florin Andone is down yet again as he chases a long ball with Varane challenging. He gets about, doesn't he? Depor have a free-kick on the left, anyway...
...
46' AND WE'RE OFF! Real Madrid get us underway, kicking off from right to left
...
The players are back out - kickoff in the second half is moments away!
...
For all the abuse he's received, Marcelo is now the first Real Madrid player to have two assists in the same game all season. He did well for Nacho's goal, but calling his cross for Bale's golazo is a bit of a stretch.
...
Gareth Bale: Has scored more La Liga goals (5) than Cristiano Ronaldo (4) this season despite playing 678 minutes less action
...
Gareth Bale scores his 7th goal in 6 La Liga appearances against Deportivo- has only scored more v Rayo Vallecano (9 in 6 games) He in now Real Madrid’s top La Liga scorer this season, with 5 goals

...
42' GOOOOOAL GARETH BALE!!!
...
40' Great work from Ronaldo as he tracks all the way back to pick the ball of Mosquera's feet, but Bale's return pass to send the Portuguese star through is overhit.
...
38' Florin Andone goes into the book for a poor foul on Casemiro - studs very much up, which causes Marcelo to have a couple of strong words with the Depor striker.

As Arsene Wenger, would say, that looked 'orange'
