Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo scored against Deportivo during his first competitive game for Real Madrid in 2009.
The Portuguese star has some happy memories of his previous meetings with the Galician side. He scored from the penalty spot in his debut six years ago and has since met Deportivo twice at the Bernabeau in competitive matches, scoring a brace in 2010 and a hat-trick in 2012.
Furthermore, Karim Benzema and Marcelo also made their debuts against Deportivo (the Frenchman, in the same match as Ronaldo and Marcelo at the Riazor in 2007).
Real Madrid will be hoping that Ronaldo can continue to make good memories as they look to pick up the pieces following their embarrassing 4-0 loss to city rivals, Atletico Madrid, last weekend. The last time Real Madrid and Deportivo met was on 20 September last year, where Carlo Ancelotti’s men ran out 8-2 winners.
