Match Facts:

Sporting (18th, 22 pts):

- The Gijon outfit have prevailed just once in their last 15 LaLiga Santander meetings with Madrid (D2 L12). That triumph came back in April 2011, with Los Rojiblancos running out 1-0 winners at the Santiago Bernabeu.

- We have to go right back to October 1994 for the last time that the Asturians registered a home victory over Los Blancos. On that day, Mariano Garcia Remon and Jorge Valdano occupied the respective dugouts and witnessed the hosts secure a 1-0 success.

Real Madrid (1st, 72 pts):

- The Madrilenians are unbeaten in their last eight LaLiga Santander visits to El Molinon (W5 D3). What's more, Los Merengues managed to keep clean sheets in each of those outings.

- Cristiano Ronaldo has struck six times in seven league appearances against this weekend's opponents, however, only once has he netted on Sporting's patch.
