Match Report

Having lost 1-0 in the corresponding fixture last season, Madrid were quick to ensure they did not suffer a similar fate this time around – Benzema ending a three-match scoreless run before Sergio Ramos, who later went off injured, doubled the visitors’ tally with his 50th headed goal for Los Blancos.

Leo Baptistao hauled Espanyol back into the contest, but Benzema had the final say of a frantic opening 45 minutes when he slotted in on the stroke of half-time.

Gareth Bale’s goal three minutes after his introduction added further gloss, only for Raphael Varane’s red card to make things complicated, but though Roberto Rosales’ stunning volley set up a thrilling finale, Espanyol could not muster an unlikely comeback.
