Real Madrid's trip to face Málaga today sees captain Sergio Ramos return to the stadium where he scored his first La Liga goal for the club, just over ten years ago.

In a 2-0 victory for Los Blancos in December 2005, the defender gave his side the lead with a header from a corner kick, before Brazilian Robinho rounded off the scoring.

And who sent in the corner delivery? None other than legendary French midfielder Zinedine Zidane, now Ramos' boss at the Santiago Bernabéu.

Since getting off the mark for Real in the league, the Andalusian has found the net on 40 further occasions in the top flight, with 2006-07 and 2007-08 proving his most prolific seasons (five in each).

So far this term, the 29-year-old has one La Liga strike to his name, having fired in a spectacular effort in Madrid's defeat at Sevilla in week 11.

Against Málaga, Ramos has been on target a total of three times in the league for Real: after opening his account at La Rosaleda, he went on to score in that season's return at the Bernabéu, before also doing so in the closing stages of the 2014-15 campaign.
