Deportivo continue their fight to avoid relegation against the wounded Real Madrid in this encounter.

Deportivo need nothing but a win if they want to survive the drop this season.

They are currently 16th in the league table, just 4 points above 17th placed Leganes, but they are 8 points off the relegation zone.

Their recent form has been woeful – they have won only 1 time in their last 6 games, losing 4 of those fixtures.

Their home form is not particularly bad, as they have managed to lose only 1 of their last 6 home games, although they have drawn 3 of those and managed 2 wins.

Real Madrid come into this encounter after a very disappointing home loss to archrivals Barcelona on Sunday.

They had hoped to open up a 6 points gap with a win in that game, but have now been brought down to second position on goal difference.

Prior to that loss to Barca, Madrid had won 4 of their last 5 matches in all competitions.

They now have 4 wins from their last 6 La Liga games.

Real Madrid are deadly when they play away from home, they have won 7 of their last 7 away matches in all competitions, and Deportivo look like their next victim.

Bookmakers strongly favour Real Madrid in this tie.
