Riazor, a good place to take off in La Liga


Real Madrid haven’t had a good start to their La Liga season, but they’ll have a chance to redirect their path next Saturday as they visit a stadium that has been favourable for them in the last years: Riazor.

Traveling to La Coruna used to be a nightmare for Los Blancos. In fact, the Madridistas had a terrible run of 18 years without beating Deportivo in their stadium in La Liga.

However, since Real broke that run in 2010 with a 1-3 victory, they haven’t lost again at Riazor. That was the season when many of the current stars of the team arrived to the Spanish capital, such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.

Statistics show Los Merengues have well adapted to play at La Coruna. Nevertheless, they have taken points from Deportivo’s stadium in their last four visits –three in La Liga and one in the Teresa Herrera Trophy– earning three victories and one draw.

A key for that improvement when playing at Riazor has been the good defensive performances. Los Blancos have only conceded two goals in their last four games there. Thus, their visit to Deportivo on Saturday seems like a great chance for Real to take off in La Liga.
