Real Madrid open Zidane era with win over Deportivo

Zinedine Zidane’s reign as Real Madrid boss got underway with a 5-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna on Saturday evening.

Gareth Bale scored a hat-trick for the hosts, while Karim Benzema netted twice against a Deportivo team that entered the match having only lost three times in the league this season.

The victory has moved Los Blancos onto 40 points in the La Liga table, but they are still third behind Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, who both have a game in hand. Deportivo, meanwhile, remain in eighth position on 27 points.
