After all the drama witnessed in the off-season over their transfer deals, the player parades, the gazillions spent, it is time for the on-field action to begin in earnest for Real Madrid.
All eyes will be set on the 80 million man Cristiano Ronaldo as he looks to justify his world-record price tag. Giving him company will be Kaka, Karim Benzema and Xabi Alonso as the Madristas look to take Spain by storm. Thier first opponents: Deportivo La Coruna. Madrid have beaten Deportivo 3 times out of the previous 5 times these 2 teams have played each other, but suffered 2 losses as well. The world is watching, and so are their rivals.
