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
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!
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!
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!
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!
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
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
