Deportivo La Coruna 0-3 Real Madrid

Real were without Cristiano Ronaldo, and will be for the next three games after his suspension in the Spanish Super Cup. Bale's spot was in jeopardy after great displays from youngster Marco Asensio at the right wing position.

After a hard opening five minutes, it was Deportivo that were looking the team more likely to make the breakthrough, with Guilherme just missing the crossbar with a strike from distance as the first period continued to gather pace.

Keylor Navas then saved Florin Andone's penalty, before Ramos was dismissed.

Real Madrid became their usual, ruthless self after these early scares, ensuring Deportivo would not get many more chances like this.

Real Madrid opened the scoring in the 20th minute, however, when Bale poked home from close range after Deportivo goalkeeper Ruben had parried a Luka Modric effort straight into the path of Benzema, who clipped across goal for his teammate to tap into an empty net.

Casemiro, in with Bale as two of four changes from the Supercopa de Espana second-leg victory over Barcelona, added to his UEFA Super Cup goal against Manchester United by capping a brilliant Madrid passing move to double the visitors' lead.

Just a few minutes later, a attractive move consisting of 44 passes led to Real's second goal.

A wonderfully worked team goal followed six minutes later as Real moved the ball all over the pitch before Marcelo's low cross was turned home by Casemiro. It was Gareth Bale popping up with the assist, capping off a good game for the Welshman.

Real Madrid's winning streak shows no signs of abating as the European champions began their defence of La Liga with a comfortable 3-0 win at Deportivo la Coruna.
