Gonzalo Higuain has praised Deportivo after Real Madrid had to come from behind to beat the Turcos.
The capital club left Riazor with all three points after late goals from Kaka and the Argentine goalscorer.
But the former River Plate man has admitted that his side had a 'difficult game'.
“In the second half we had to go all-out and win,” he told reporters. “It was a very difficult game that put us on the back foot.
“It was important to win, and luckily we've done so. We are pleased to have gotten this victory.”
