Los Blancos are coming off a disappointing finish to the Champions League group stage. They blew a 2-goal lead against Borussia Dortmund, as the Germans fought back to draw the defending Champions League champs. The 2-2 score handed the group over to Dortmund, according to ESPN, as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, 27, and Marco Reus, 27, equalized the pair of points scored by Karim.
Because they finished second in the group, Real now faces five potential opponents when the Round of 16 draw takes place on Dec. 12 (according to CBS Sports): Arsenal, Juventus, Leicester City, Monaco, or Napoli.
Though they didn’t win the match with Dortmund, they didn’t lose it. Real has gone 34 games since their last defeat, losing to VfL Wolfsburg in the quarter-final of the 2015-16 Champions League. This ties the unbeaten streak set by Real in the 1988-89 season, and Los Blancos look to break the record with this game against Deportivo.
Though Deportivo is coming off a 5-1 victory over Real Sociedad, they’ve lost four of their last seven matches in La Liga, sending them tumbling down to 16th place. They’re just barely avoiding relegation at this point and another loss will surely put them at a greater risk of getting sent down to Segunda Division. Uh-oh.
Who do you think is going to win this game, HollywoodLifers? Will Deportivo suffer another defeat or will they be able to fight Real to a draw?
