Real Madrid have one of the most deep rosters in European football and they will have to prove that when Deportivo visit the Bernabeu today. Coach Zidane left Modric, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema out of the squad list so it's time for the reserves to step up and show they can take care of business at home.

Real Madrid Starting XI: Keylor; Danilo, Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Nacho; Casemiro, Isco, Kroos; James, Morata and Asensio.

Deportivo Starting XI (To Be Confirmed): Tyton, Juanfran, Albentosa, Sidnei, Navarro, Guilherme, Borges, Gil, Colak, Ryan Babel, Florin Andone.

In the end, Real Madrid are making rotations but they are clearly the better team and should have a comfortable match against Deportivo La Coruña. Even though this starting lineup will most likely need some minutes to learn how to play together, Los Blancos should prevail and get all three points available before heading to Japan to play in the FIFA Club World Cup.
