With 4 wins in their last five league games, Real Madrid will be looking to extend their good form when they host Espanyol at the Santiago Bernabeu in the 23rd round of the Spanish La Liga.
Real Madrid Looking To Stay At The Top
With two games in hand, the hosts are leading the Spanish top division with one point ahead of Barcelona. The team have lost once and won four time in their last five league games. Real Madrid have collected a total of 12 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in La Liga. Their last league match was against Osasuna away from home where they won 3-1.
Real Madrid are currently sitting in the 1st place in the league table. They have 49 points from 15 wins, 4 draws and 1 losses. The team scored 54 goals and conceded 18 since the start of the season.
Toni Kroos is available for league action once again after his ban, which will mean that Mateo Kovacic starts on the bench. Lucas Vazquez should be preferred to James Rodriguez out on the right-hand side against his former club. Sergio Ramos limped off after tweaking a muscle against Napoli midweek, but the Real Madrid captain could still start ahead of Pepe.
Espanyol To Bounce Back
Espanyol have collected a total of 9 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in La Liga. Their last league match was against Real Sociedad at home where they lost 2-1.
Espanyol are currently sitting in the 9th place in the league table. They have 32 points from 8 wins, 8 draws and 6 losses. They have scored 30 goals and conceded 29 since the start of the season.
Head To Head
Real Madrid have won 5 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2016 when the final score was 2-0 to Real Madrid away from home earlier this season.
