Ramos sees red to equal inglorious La Liga record

Real Madrid's defender Sergio Ramos clashes with Deportivo La Coruna's Swiss defender Fabian Schar.

The Spain defender was sent off in the closing stages of the game after picking up a second yellow card, after he caught Borja Valle with an arm during an aerial duel.

- Sergio Ramos has equaled Xavi Aguado and Pablo Alfaro as the player with the most red cards in La Liga history (18).

However, it was also the 23rd overall dismissal of Ramos' career, meaning he still has some way to go to break the all-time world record set by infamous Colombian bruiser Gerardo Bedoya, who was sent off 46 times in career that spanned 20 years between 1995 and 2015.

Possibility of players being loaned out: "Nobody has asked me if they can leave; this is exactly the squad I want and I hope it doesn't change although as we know, anything can happen up until August 31st".

"It isn't an easy place to come and they had chances to score".

Keylor Navas saved two Florin Andone shots while Zakaria Bakkali missed from six yards.

- 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).

It was 2-0 just seven minutes later when an unmarked Casemiro tapped home Marcelo's pinpoint cross.

- Gareth Bale has ended a run of 10 games in all competitions without scoring for Real Madrid, his longest drought for the club.

Bale turned provider for Real's third just after the hour mark as Kroos's deflected effort from the edge of the box found the top corner.

In Barca's first home match since a pair of terrorist attacks killed 14 people and wounded around 120 in Barcelona's bustling Las Ramblas boulevard and the nearby seaside resort of Cambrils, Barcelona players wore black armbands and shirts with "Barcelona" replacing individual names on the back.
