Ramos the Real deal as Madrid stays unbeaten

A WEEK after scoring the late equaliser to earn Real Madrid a draw with Barcelona in El Clasico, Sergio Ramos has again rescued his team with an injury-time header in a 3-2 win over Deportivo La Coruna.

The captain's header in the 93rd minute sparked huge celebrations as Madrid, without the rested Cristiano Ronaldo, came back from 2-1 down to keep six points clear of Barca at the top of La Liga.

The comeback victory also set a record of 35 games unbeaten for Zinedine Zidane's team.

Former Real forward Joselu threatened to spoil the party after he scored twice to put Deportivo 2-1 up after Alvaro Morata's stunning opener on 63 minutes.

Real youngster Mariano Diaz scored his first league goal to level in the 88th before Ramos scored from Toni Kroos' corner.

"When you fight until the end things go your way. They penalised our errors but in the end when you work hard you get results,” Ramos said.

"I'm happy that I keep scoring goals and above all we keep completing our objectives.”

Barcelona won 3-0 at Osasuna thanks to two second-half strikes from Lionel Messi and an opener from Luis Suarez.
