The 68th installment of the Teresa Herrera Trophy will be an exciting match for Deportivo La Coruna, as the hosts will face Real Madrid. 

The club, which was relegated a season ago after finishing 19th on the table with 35 points, is no stranger to Los Blancos. Real Madrid won the two La Liga matches between the clubs by a combined score of 7-2 last season. 

Deportivo La Coruna will hope to keep things a bit closer than that on Thursday evening. Let's break this one down.

Storylines To Watch

Participation in the Teresa Herrera Trophy is a nice gesture on Los Blancos' part, as the club is playing for free. 

From Marca:

That said, Real Madrid probably won't have many of their top players in action, with a La Liga match against Athletic Bilbao on Sunday. 

That's good news for Deportivo, which fell to Cordoba on Saturday, 1-0. A positive draw against Real Madrid's second team—even in a loss—would give Deportivo confidence as they continue on their Spanish Segunda Division campaign. 

For Real Madrid, it's a chance to trot out a few of the team's many promising youngsters, such as Alvaro Morata, Jese Rodriguez and Nacho Fernandez. 

 

Prediction

Whether Real Madrid unleash Cristiano Ronaldo, Isco and company on Deportivo or go with second-team options, Los Blancos will be favored to beat the Segunda Division side. 

Frankly, Real Madrid's reserves would beat most La Liga sides, so Deportivo La Coruna shouldn't come out of this match with a win. 

Still, the match against Real Madrid is a positive outcome for the club no matter what the result.

Real Madrid win, 3-0.
