Real Madrid thrash Deportivo 7-1

Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo both scored twice as Real Madrid came from behind to seal a thumping win over Deportivo La Coruna at the Bernabeu on Sunday.

The victory is Madrid’s first La Liga win since December 9, 2017.

Adrian Lopez tapped in the opener for Deportivo, but Nacho soon levelled with a clinical strike.
