Real Madrid Vs Espanyol Live Online Commentary
Real Madrid are currently leading the Spain Top Fligt table having 49 points to their name while they have 2 extra matches at hand, they are already a point ahead of their arch rivals FC Barcelona who are directly behind them. Los Blancos are currently on a 3‑match winning spell in the La Liga and are expecting to extend the streak in this match. As regards Zidane’s men team news ahead of this match: German international Toni Kroos returns from a ban and should partner Modric and Casemiro in the heart of midfield. While Lucas Vazquez is expected to start on the right flank on the right against his former club. Sergio Ramos picked up a knock against Napoli but could still start.
On the flip side, the Catalan side Espanyol were beaten at home last weekend by Real Sociedad, the match ended 1–2. They are in the 8th spot at the moment and are 4 points behind Villarreal who are in the 6th place. A victory in this fixture will pull them closer to 6th spot depending on outcome of other matches. But of course it still seems unlikely. Touching injury news: Pablo Piatti is a doubt with a fractured skull. Marc Navarro is out so Diego Reyes may have to shift across to right-back with Oscar Duarte making a rare start in central defence.
