Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Nacho each netted a brace as Real Madrid overcame an early deficit and thumped Deportivo at the Bernabeu.

Real Madrid released a video of Cristiano Ronaldo's face cut on Monday, intimating it could have been much worse

Ronaldo was sliced extremely close to his left eye by a Deportivo La Coruna defender's boot while he was scoring in Madrid's 7-1 La Liga win on Sunday.

Ronaldo was diving to head in the ball from near the penalty spot for his second goal when Fabian Schar tried to hit the ball and ended up striking Ronaldo's face with his right boot.

Doctors attended to the Portuguese star but they could not contain the blood, and Ronaldo had to leave the game with about five minutes left, leaving Madrid to see out the game 10 men.

As he left the field and blood was spilling down his face and neck, Ronaldo asked for the doctor's cell phone to look at the injury. Using the phone camera as a mirror, Ronaldo checked the damage and was not happy with what he saw, shaking his head briefly.

And a day later, Madrid released video of Ronaldo's treatment, including just how close the cut came to his eye. While Madrid said the injury was not serious, it did not say if he was fit to play.

Madrid's next game is on Wednesday at home against Leganes in the second leg of the Copa del Rey. Madrid won the first match 1-0 using mostly reserves. It remains unclear if Ronaldo will be available for the second leg.
