Real Madrid with new transfers

Everyone was waiting to see Real Madrid in action with their new and expensive players. How they will performance was always a question mark during pre-season, because they didnt seem like they became a team, sure it is hard for a club who sells and buys too many players. And their pre-season performance wasn't the only thing that was questioned, also how much money they spent this summer was always criticized. They bought Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United for 94 million €, Kaka from Milan for 86 million €, Raul Albiol from Valencia for 15 million €, Benzema from Lyon for 35 million € and Xabi Alonso from Liverpool for 35 million €. With other transfers like Arbeloa and Granero, they totally spent about 273 million €. Of course, this situation damaged the club and team balance, and they had to sell some players to decrease the number of players to 25 (as a rule for La Liga clubs).
As a solution for this problem, Real Madrid chose their Dutch players to sell. Robben left Madrid and made his move to Bayern München, Huntelaar moved to Milan and Sneijder moved to Inter. How much Real Madrid won? Sure, not even as much as they paid for Ronaldo. Then, would you prefer Ronaldo to these three players? Well, everyone has own opinion..
Match day came, and the new expensive stars was on the pitch. Not only football stars, because it was Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt who kicked-off the match.

Ronaldo scored on his debut

Match: In the first minutes, Real Madrid dominated the match and Deportivo looked like they were playing a defensive kind of game. Real Madrid forwards had difficulties to find free space between Deportivo defenders. But in the 25th minute of the game, French forward Benzema hit a powerful shot between defenders, but the shot came back from the post. Raul picked up the ball and scored the opener.
After four minutes Deportivo won a free kick and Riki made the score 1-1 with his header.
To take the lead again, legendary Madrid player Raul was on the scene, he helped his team to win a penalty, and Ronaldo scored his first league goal for Real Madrid and Galacticos took the lead again in the match.

Deportivo tried to make to score level again, and they got what they wanted with Valeron's shot from outside the box and made the score 2-2.
But Lass didn't let Deportivo to get 1 point from Bernabeu with his terrific shot from outside the box, and gifted 3 points for his team.

First matchs are always harder, but honestly Real Madrid defense didnt give too much confidence in this 90 minutes. Maybe things will get better when Ramos will take his place in first eleven but it is sure that if Madrid cant find harmony, a tight season is waiting for them.
