Keylor Navas did not enjoy the best of games against Valencia last time out but the Costa Rican star is in no real danger of losing his spot as the number one goalkeeper at the Santiago Bernabeu.
That said though, Navas will be looking to make a good impression and keep a clean sheet against Deportivo in order to impress new manager Zinedine Zidane.
The Real Madrid backline performed very poorly in the clash against Valencia and arguably the two main culprits for Los Blancos was Pepe and Danilo.
With Raphael Varane fit once again, Pepe looks likely to be dropped to the bench while Danilo also finds himself under pressure due to the return of fitness for Dani Carvajal. Sergio Ramos is a certain starter for Madrid though, as is left back Marcelo.
Mateo Kovacic was handed a surprise start ahead of James Rodriguez during the 2-2 draw against Valencia but with the Croatian getting himself sent off, it looks for certain that James will be returning to the lineup.
Toni Kroos and Luka Modric both enjoyed good games at the heart of the Madrid midfield and it would be a major surprise if the duo do not retain their place in the lineup once again against Deportivo.
Karim Benzema performed wonderfully well against Valencia and Zidane is most certainly not going to drop his compatriot from the start while even Gareth Bale put in a good display.
Cristiano Ronaldo did not play to his best last time out though and one can be sure that the Portuguese star will be intent on making amends.
Real Madrid Probable Lineup: Navas; Marcelo, Varane, Ramos, Danilo; James, Kroos, Modric; Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale
