Captain Raul came off the bench to help Real Madrid claim a 3-1 win against Deportivo La Coruna and keep the reigning Spanish champions on top of the Primera Liga standings.

Raul began the game on the bench as part of Bernd Schuster´s rotation policy but, having replaced Javier Saviola in the 65th minute, he broke a 1-1 deadlock with 12 minutes remaining to put Real ahead.

Robinho then capped a roller-coaster week on a personal level with Real´s third in the closing moments to seal the win. The Brazilian had last weekend been dropped for the game at Espanyol - where Real suffered their first defeat of the season - after returning late from international duty, but he played a starring role in the 4-2 Champions League win over Olympiacos in midweek.
