Hope you  guys enjoyed this coverage. Make sure you join us for the midweek action as Barca play Atletico in clash of the titans!

...

Full Time: Espanyol 0-2 Real Madrid

...

90' Two minutes of added time as Madrid edge closer to history

...

86' Ramos' free-kick attempt straight at Lopez! One of the few chances he'll because once Bale and Ronaldo are back in the team he'll probably have to hold back his skills for the training ground!

...

84' Carvajal gets into the book for a late challenge on Duarte. He could have been sent off for dissent after he started to argue with the referee before Vasquez pulled him away!

...

83' Isco fouled after a tired challenge from an Epsanyol defender

...

79' Approaching the last 10 minutes of the game. It looks done and dusted and Zidane will equal the longest winning streak set in La Liga if his team don't do anything stupid in these last few minutes

...

75' SAVE FROM KIKO CASILLA! Kroos gives the ball away uncharacteristically in midfield and Baptistao finds Caicedo but Pepe sticks with his run and delays his shot for just enough time to rush it, which still needed a great save!

...

73' The good news for Espanyol is, it's not a cricket score like last season, the bad news is, it's still 3 points lost!

...

70' Sweeping move from Madrid, Carvajal found Vasquez on the overlapping run and he puts in a great cross for Benzema who gets ahead of his marker for a simple tap in! The defence went to sleep and that's probably game over!

...

BENZEMA SCORES!!! 2-0 !!! 

...

67' Madrid at the other end almost score with Benzema but some brilliant interception play kept the scoreline at 1-0!

...

66' GREAT COUNTER ATTACKING MOVE FROM ESPANYOL! Perez finds Baptisitao and he took just a little too long to get the shot away but he was in a  promising positon

...

Caicedo is on for Gerard Moreno

...

65' Felipe Caicedo is ready to come on! He is some physical presence and can be a handful in the box!

...

64 Marco Asensio brought down by Javi Lopez and another free-kick for Madrid! Proper Rugby tackle that!

...

60' Vasquez dinks a ball in and Benzema controls Asensio's set up on his chest turns and volleys  an acrobatic effort from close range which Lopez saves with an equally acrobatic stop! 

...

59' WHAT AN EFFORT FROM BENZEMA! WHAT A SAVE FROM LOPEZ!

...

55' Both sides struggling to get into a passing rhythm. The quality is slightly lacking

...

53' Getting a little niggly and physical in these opening stages of the 2nd half, as Diop is booked for a bad looking tackle against Vasquez

...

52' Espanyol claiming a foul in the box but after Pepe's strong but fair challenge

...

50' Madrid weren't at their fluid best in the first half but have slowly increased their influence over play, but Espanyol have started the brighter this half

...

48' The goal Espnayol conceded right on the cusp of half-time would have definitely hurt! Madrid should finish this game off when they have the advantage

...

We are back underway!!

...

Half Time: Espanyol 0-1 Real Madrid

...

Rodriguez squeezes past a couple of players and places the ball perfectly in the far corner from just outside the box! Brilliant finish from the Colombian! HE's BACK alright!

...

46' JAMES RODRIGUEZ SCORESSS!!!! 1-0 to MADRID!!

...

45' 3 minutes of time added on for extras and injuries

...

45' Espanyol ending the half the better, as Madrid are pinned in their own half!

...

42' SO CLOSE FOR ESPANYOL!!! Perez puts in a great cross and Baptistao's diving header just brushes past the post!! Kiko Casilla was sprawling towards his right but was always struggling to get to it had it been on target! 

...

39' Benzema puts it in the back of the net from an inch perfect Marcelo cross but it's offside!

...

38' KROOS FROM RANGE! Wide from the German after getting into a good position around 28 yards out

...

34' BRILLAITN PLAY FROM MODRIC! He almost single-handedly dribbles past the entire defence twisting them inside out and eventually wins a corner which is dealt with by the home side

...

32' MADRID ALMOST CATCH ESPANYOL OUT! On the break, Asensio tries to play James through with a jab pass between the split defenders but there is not enough weight on it and the defenders close him out quickly enough to prevent a shot!

...

31' Now Carvajal is holding his knee! He's battling on though

...

29' Madrid's attacks a bit toothless so far. Their crosses not causing too much trouble for this organized Espanyol defence

...

28' Espanyol not giving Madrid's defenders a minute's peace with their pressing but Pepe and Ramos dealing with the danger well so far

...

23' Madrid's attacks so far have been mainly through crosses, not yet penetrating with fluent passing

...

22' There was applause in the 21st minute in show of respect for former Espanyol man Dani Jarque. He sadly passed away too young and was a close friend to Andres Iniesta

...

21' Hernan Perez goes into the book for a foul on Marcelo
