Perhaps rumours of Real Madrid’s demise were a little hasty. They put Basel to the sword to the tune of 5-1 in the Champions League last week. For an encore, they went just a little bit bonkers on Saturday and smashed 8 (eight) past hapless Deportivo La Coruna.
13 goals in 2 games would hint that Real Madrid are starting to gel, after a jittery, stuttering start to their campaign. If that was the end of their hiccup, what a great time to have it. Finally, not to toot our own Vuvuzela, but check out what we suggested as a bet for this game in our weekly La Liga preview.
