Sports Mole previews Real Madrid's home encounter against Deportivo La Coruna.

Defeat for Real Madrid tomorrow evening against Deportivo La Coruna could potentially leave them 11 points behind title rivals Barcelona.

However, Los Blancos have not lost at the Bernabeu in their last 14 outings.

Coach Jose Mourinho has his entire squad at his disposal following the return of Fabio Coentrao from a four-match suspension.

Brazilian midfielder Kaka may also been involved in 18-man selection.

Loanee striker Nelson Oliveira is expected to start up front for visiting Deportivo in place of Riki, who recently sustained a broken nose.

They last won at the Bernabeu back in October 2004 have been beaten on their last six trips to the capital.

Recent form:

Madrid: WWLWW
Deportivo: LDDDW

Possible lineups:

Madrid: Casillas; Marcelo, Ramos, Pepe, Arbeloa; Xabi Alonso, Khedira, Ozil; Di Maria, Ronaldo; Benzema

Deportivo: Aranzubia; Pablo, Aythami, Marchena, Evaldo; Dominguez, Aguilar; Gama, Valeron, Pizzi; Oliveira

Sports Mole says: 3-1
