Ramos sees red to equal inglorious La Liga record

Deportivo nearly managed to pull one back late on but Florin Andone saw his penalty kick saved by goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos, set an unwanted La Liga record during their 3-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday.

Seven minutes later, Real Madrid doubled their advantage as Casemiro converted a low cross from Marcelo, who had danced past a couple of challenges before putting the ball on a plate for his fellow Brazilian.

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.

Real Madrid wing-back Marcelo was happy with victory at Deportivo La Coruna.

Real killed off the game as Toni Kroos' shot went past Ruben, with the help of a deflection.

Guilherme then came close to reducing the arrears for Depor, but his effort cannoned off the crossbar, but then the hosts were handed an even better chance to score when Dani Carvajal brought down Bruno Gama in the penalty area.

But there was some frustration for Zidane, with Ramos, who had been fortunate earlier, dismissed in the second minute of added time after catching substitute Borja Valle with an arm in an aerial duel.

Real Madrid ended the game as a contest just past the hour when Kroos found the back of the net with a powerful finish after Bale had delivered a low cross into the German worldwide.

Ramos' red card: "I am happy with how the game panned out but not with what happened with Sergio".

- Casemiro has scored three goals in his last four starts for Real Madrid and all three in different competitions (CL final, UEFA Super Cup and La Liga).
