Deportivo La Coruna (8-18-11, 42 points) will be the last team Real Madrid (27-6-4, 87 points) will face in the attempt to claim the elusive La Liga title. They face each other at the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes on Saturday, May 14th for their final matches of the season.
To be named champions, Real Madrid must beat Deportivo La Coruna and hope that Barcelona fail to secure the win at Granada. While it appears to be improbable that Madrid will claim the title at the end of the match, the best Zidane can hope from his players is to finish the season with a win.
Zidane wants his players to concentrate on the match, and not worry about Barcelona match until the full time whistle is heard.
“I’m not going to find out what has happened (with Barcelona’s match) until the end,” Zidane said. “We don’t depend on ourselves, but we have to think only about our match and how we can win and get the three points. Then we will see.”
“We have faith. We have won 11 games (in a row) and we are within one point with one match to go. We have to believe until the very last second.”
The predicted result is a 3-0 win for Real Madrid to remain in the second place behind Barcelona for the 2015-2016 La Liga season trophy.
Deportivo La Coruna predicted starting lineup: Manu; Pablo, Vergini, Vigaray, Suarez; Medran, Lacen, Gomez; Leon, Vasquez, Sarabia
Real Madrid predicted starting lineup: Navas; Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo; Kroos, Casemiro, Modric; Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo
