Real Madrid Beat Espanyol Behind Isco Brace

Real Madrid Beat Espanyol Behind Isco Brace

Espanyol would have themselves to blame for losing the match against Real Madrid as they wasted many chances which would have resulted to goals for them.

"We would love to play all our games here at the Bernabeu", he said.

The global break may be seen as well-timed for Real in that regard, giving Zidane a fortnight to reassess their start to the campaign ahead of their trip to Getafe on October 14.

"We'll have to see whether he's involved tomorrow", Zidane said.

"We have to prove ourselves again every day".

In his debut half-season at the helm it was a 6-0 victory against Espanyol that brought purring in the Spanish press over Zidane and his reinvention of a side that had been listless and leaderless under Rafa Benitez, who never really fit the company profile despite his sterling work at Castilla.

Wales face two enormous games in World Cup qualification during the worldwide break. Espanyol aren't much better off, though - Javi Lopez, Oscar Duarte, and Adrien Lopez are all sidelines, and they lack the quality of depth that Madrid have to deal with those injuries.

Meanwhile, Marco Asensio and Isco joined Cristiano Ronaldo in the final third as Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema missed out through injury.

Speculation over Ronaldo's future at Madrid will not affect the club top goal scorer's performances, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has said.

Ramos was next to come close as the Real Madrid skipper met a Ronaldo cross at the far post, and his header brought a wonderful save from Pau Lopez. However, they have improved with a 0-0 draw in Villarreal and a 4-1 hammering of Deportivo la Coruna and with strikers Gerard Moreno and Leo Baptistao both in good form, Real Madrid will have to dig deep if they want to finally send their fans home happy. With Gareth Bale a doubt as well, things will revolve around Ronaldo and he simply has to deliver - a situation in which he thrives.

Sanchez Flores succeeded Benitez at Real Madrid's reserves and his work there garnered similar plaudits, leading to admiring glances from Getafe and later Valencia, who he guided to two consecutive Champions League qualifications.
