Partido; Real Madrid - Deportivo
Estadio; Santiago Bernabéu
Relax Madridistas... this mach is not at the Riazor.
Our record at home to Deportivo is as immaculate as it is heinous in the north-western region of Spain. I can't think of two teams which better give a concrete form to the nature and concept of "home field advantage".
We've matched our longest winning streak of the season (four wins), keeping three clean sheets out of four in the process. Juande has made a very good start so far but we still need to make a significant improvement in the coming weeks with the Champions League resuming next month. At the moment Barca has no rival but we know that in football everything can change in a week, in a solitary moment, in a single result. All we can do is to keep winning our matches all the while we wait for their mistake.
Lassana and Gago are in perfect sync, with Robben and Higuaín playing spectacular football... Sneijder and Raul need to buck up their ideas though; otherwise VdV and the Hunter deserve their chance.
