RCD Espanyol v Real Madrid CF - LaLiga Santander
Madrid face Espanyol in La Liga on Saturday.

Real Madrid host Espanyol at the Santiago Bernabeu in La Liga on Saturday (March 11), looking to return to winning ways following a series of disappointing results.

After thrashing Liverpool 5-2 in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first leg, Los Blancos have struggled for form, drawing with Atletico Madrid and Real Betis in the league.

Interspersed between the two stalemates was a 1-0 home defeat to Barcelona in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals.

Within a span of few days, their campaign has threatened to go off the rails. The reigning Spanish champions are now nine points behind the Blaugrana in the race.

A victory at the weekend would a huge boost of their confidence, especially with Liverpool set to visit Madrid on Wednesday (March 15) fot the second leg of their European tie.

Espanyol, meanwhile, are down in 13th place in the standings with 27 points from 24 games. Following back-to-back wins over Elche and Mallorca, Los Periquitos lost 2-1 to Real Valladolid on Sunday (March 5).
