Real Madrid 3-2 Deportivo La Coruna

So that's 35 matches unbeaten in all competitions for Real Madrid - a new club record.

To mark the occasion, I've been asking you all evening for your team's greatest feat. I've saved the big one until last.

How they stand

Real Madrid 3-2 Deportivo La Coruna

Victory restores Real's six-point lead at the top of La Liga before they head off to Japan for the Club World Cup. Zinedine Zidane must be feeling pretty chipper right now.

Real Madrid 3-2 Deportivo La Coruna

Or, to be more precise, what a second half. To be honest, you could have spent the opening 45 minutes posting selfies on Snapchat and not missed a great deal. The second 45, though, was terrific.

FULL-TIME

Real Madrid 3-2 Deportivo La Coruna

No... Guess who's back to clear the ball? Alvaro Morata. Proposed to his girlfriend during the week, opened the scoring tonight, and has the last word. What a game.

Deportivo win a corner, though. One last chance?

Real Madrid 3-2 Deportivo La Coruna

What a turnaround that is. Real looked beaten with six minutes left. But they found a way. And Zinedine Zidane's selection - which has looked questionable at times tonight - has been vindicated.

GOAL - Real Madrid 3-2 Deportivo

Sergio Ramos

Told you there was a twist in this. And what a twist. It's Sergio Ramos again - the man whose late equaliser at Barcelona seven days ago preserved the unbeaten record. The captain rises to power in the corner with a terrific header, and history is made. Surely it is.

A painful moment for keeper Przemyslaw Tyton, as he flies to tip away Alvaro Morata's header, and collides with the post. He's OK after treatment, but it's a corner...

Real Madrid 2-2 Deportivo La Coruna

Five minutes of stoppage time. Still a twist in this yet, you know.

Real Madrid 1-2 Deportivo La Coruna

In amid all of that, Sergio Ramos was booked. He will miss Real's next La Liga match, which will not be until the New Year.

Real Madrid 2-2 Deportivo La Coruna

Drama! Sergio Ramos climbs high to meet a cross at the far post, and Przemyslaw Tyton has to fling himself across goal to push the ball away. There's a collision in the aftermath of that, and then suddenly it's 2am outside the kebab shop as Alvaro Morata tangles with Sidnei, and everyone else piles in. In the distance, a voice shouts: "Leave him, Alvaro, he's not worth it!"

GOAL - Real Madrid 2-2 Deportivo

Mariano Diaz

And they do equalise! What a moment that is for the young Dominican forward Mariano, who rises to glance in Lucas Vazquez's right-wing cross for his first La Liga goal. A big moment for the striker, who has scored four times for the club in the Copa del Rey this season. Big finish in store now. Chaaaaaaaarrrrrrrge!

If Real Madrid scramble an equaliser here, breaking a club record by getting out of jail, again, would be pretty appropriate for this run.

On that note, Babel leaves us, and Turkish midfielder Faycal Fajr is on to try to help Deportivo see this out. Marcelo has replaced Danilo for Real.

Real Madrid 1-2 Deportivo La Coruna

Deportivo on the break, and it's Ryan Babel charging forward. Danilo slides into the challenge just outside the penalty area and does not get the ball. The referee feels that the former Liverpool man goes to ground too easily, and gives nowt. Last 10 minutes.

We've been asking you for your team's greatest feat as Real Madrid try to set a club record of 35 games unbeaten - but are Deportivo about to deny them?

Real Madrid 1-2 Deportivo La Coruna

And a change for Deportivo too. Pedro Mosquera, a defensive midfielder, is on for Florin Andone, a striker. Think we can see what the visitors' game plan is from here. And who can blame them?

Zinedine Zidane tries to mix things up a little for Real. Isco is taken off, and Mariano Diaz is on in his place.

Real Madrid 1-2 Deportivo La Coruna

It's getting physical out there now. Alvaro Morata is clipped off the ball by Raul Albentosa, gets frustrated and gives the former Derby man a shove. Then he confronts Sidnei as well, and gives him a little push in the chest. The referee, unimpressed by such histrionics, shows a yellow card to the Real striker, who is a much grumpier man than he was 20 minutes ago.

Vieira151: Putting the "mad" in Madrid... That's Real calamitous defending.

Real Madrid 1-2 Deportivo

Chance for Toni Kroos to equalise straight away as the ball is played to him 15 yards out. Sidnei, the Deportivo captain, is in the right place to block. What a final quarter we have in store here.

GOAL - Real Madrid 1-2 Deportivo

Joselu

You wait ages for one, and then two come along at once, that's what. It's the Stoke loanee who scores again. Pepe and Sergio Ramos are all at sea at the back, and Jose keeps his head to turn into space and slot beneath a shocked Keylor Navas. Real Madrid, consider your 34-match unbeaten run on the line.

GOAL - Real Madrid 1-1 Deportivo

Joselu

A moment of brilliance at the end of a chapter of accidents. Deportivo survive a scare at one end as Raul Albentosa almost turns a Toni Kroos cross past his own goalkeeper.

Within seconds, the visitors are level. Casemiro is punished for some almighty faffing about 30 yards from his own goal. Florin Andone nips in to rob in, and the ball is worked left for Joselu to score his first goal for Deportivo. And do you know what they say about London buses...?

Real full-back Danilo is briefly on the floor in agony here, having slipped as he tried to turn away from trouble, but is soon back on his feet.

Joselu, on loan from Stoke, comes on up front for Deportivo in place of Emre Colak. His team-mate Raul Albentosa, meanwhile, is booked for an agricultural challenge on Nacho.

Real Madrid 1-0 Deportivo La Coruna

Real free-kick. Toni Kroos floats the ball in, the newly engaged Morata heads back across goal, but Deportivo's defenders block the danger. What response do the visitors have here? (To going behind, that is, not to Morata's marriage proposal.)

And if can come up with a wackier tale of a marriage proposal than that, then you really should get in touch.

Alvaro Morata

Now that's more like it. Alvaro Morata gathers the ball from Isco, cuts infield on to his right foot and bends a 25-yard cracker into the corner.

Morata celebrates by going down on bended knee, as he did when he proposed to his girlfriend Alice during the week - after being called up on stage at a magic show. No, really.

Real Madrid 0-0 Deportivo La Coruna

It's not as if Real can afford to take it too easily in the league, either. Yes they started the day with a six-point lead at the top, but Barcelona cut that to three with a straightfoward 3-0 win at Osasuna in the early game.

Real Madrid 0-0 Deportivo La Coruna

No great step up in pace from Real in the second half's opening moments. It's patience without punch at the moment. Perhaps they're trying the old Muhammad Ali "rope a dope" trick...

KICK-OFF

Real Madrid 0-0 Deportivo La Coruna

Real all in white, Deportivo all in black. Appropriate, really, because it's been a bit of a chess match so far. Who has the decisive move up their sleeve? We shall see in this second half.

Real Madrid 0-0 Deportivo La Coruna

Wondering why we have hardly mentioned Alvaro Morata tonight? Because the Real Madrid forward has hardly had a sniff. He has touched the ball 14 times - only his keeper Keylor Navas touched the ball less in the first half.

We're marking Real Madrid's bid to set a club record of 35 games unbeaten by asking for your team's greatest feat. Was it the time they knocked a Premier League side out of the FA Cup? A dramatic comeback? A win against the odds? Let us know.

Real Madrid 0-0 Deportivo La Coruna

Deportivo have come the closest to scoring in the opening 45 minutes, with Celso Borges' header against the post. Zinedine Zidane's decision to make so many changes has not paid off so far. Wonder if he's regretting it? He would argue that the chance to get a trophy in the cabinet, with the Club World Cup, is too good to miss.

HALF-TIME

Real Madrid 0-0 Deportivo La Coruna

It's fair to say the home fans are a bit miffed by what they've seen so far.

Real Madrid 0-0 Deportivo La Coruna

Deportivo have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last 10 competitive games. For a team just one point above the relegation zone at the start of play, it would be a real morale booster if they could get one here. They're almost halfway.

James Rodriguez tries to reverse a pass towards Danilo, who goes to ground under Deportivo captain Sidnei's challenge, but the referee gives nothing. You remember those Road Runner cartoons in which Wile E Coyote runs over the edge of a cliff, keeps going over thin air for several seconds, then eventually realises where he is and plummets? That was what Danilo did.

Real Madrid 0-0 Deportivo La Coruna

Real win a series of corners in quick succession. The defence clear the first, and visiting keeper Przemyslaw Tyton flies through the air to fist clear the second. A third is taken short, and Isco darts in from the left, but Guilherme puts it behind. The fourth lands in a forest of Deportivo players, and is thumped to safety. Proving a tricky night for Real so far, this.
