Real Madrid Romps to 3-0 Away Win over Deportivo

Marco Asensio scored two stunning goals in Real's Spanish Super Cup win over Barcelona

The central defender now joins former FC Barcelona and Sevilla defender Pablo Alfaro and Real Zaragoza legend Xavi Aguado as the players who have received the most red cards in La Liga history, with 18 each. I don't like seeing a player sent off, but it's something we can't change.

The central defender, famed for his hard-hitting style of play, was sent off in the closing stages of the game after collecting a second yellow card.

However, he tied a record for 18 red cards in La Liga with a second booking for an elbow on Borja Valle in the dying embers of the match.

Sergio Ramos had a moment of madness, as he got into an altercation over Fabian Schar and pushed the player into the ground. "Depor put us in difficulty and had their chances to score".

Deportivo nearly managed to pull one back late on but Florin Andone saw his penalty kick saved by goalkeeper Keylor Navas. Real has won five tourneys in the past four months: La Liga, the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and the Spanish Super Cup.

Vancouver officially in running to host 2026 World Cup matches
The stadium does meet the required threshold for group stage matches, though- which require 40,000 seats. The 2026 World Cup is set to be the first with a 48-team format, up from the current 32-squad setup.

There was no way back for Deportivo once Madrid took the lead on 20 minutes as Bale pounced on Karim Benzema's scuffed shot to fire into an unguarded net for his first goal of the season.

It was Real Madrid, who enjoyed 74 per cent of the possession in the opening half of football, that entered the interval with a two-goal advantage, however, courtesy of efforts from Bale and Casemiro in the space of seven minutes.

Earlier, Barcelona also got their league campaign off to a winning start as Ernesto Valverde's side beat Real Betis 2-0 on an emotional night at the Nou Camp.

The hosts rose to the challenge of raising the city's spirits as an Alin Tosca own goal and Sergi Roberto's strike ensured a comfortable victory.
