FULL TIME: Real Madrid 6-0 Espanyol
...
...
...
...
90': Ronaldo almost scores his fourth but Isco's through ball is just out of reach!
...
86': GOAL! Jese does well to advance into the box and his cross is unfortunately turned in by Duarte for an own goal!
...
...
84': Casemiro goes into the book for a nasty foul. Espanyol have a free-kick but Navas dives low to his left to make the save!
...
82': GOAL! Cristiano Ronaldo gets his hat-trick with a header from close range! Good work by James on the touchline who releases Jese and his cross is powered home by the Portuguese forward!
...
80': Another chance for Espanyol, another comfortable save for Navas. The visitors are getting into good positions inside the box but are just not making their chances count.
...
78': Ronaldo has another free-kick in a similar location to the last one but this time he opts to cross it in. Ramos tries to get to the end of it but falls to ground - the referee is not interested!
...
...
74': SUBSTITUTION - Karim Benzema comes off to applause from the fans and Lucas Vazquez takes his place
...
73': SAVE! Keylor Navas to the rescue again! Espanyol counter-attacked this time and Navas spreads himself on a 50-50 ball to block the shot.
...
71': Incredible, Real Madrid were on the counter but the 'keeper comes out of the box, tackles Ronaldo and clears the danger!
...
69': RONALDOOO....OOOH! A free-kick is sent over the wall but doesn't dip enough and the ball kisses the roof of the net as it goes over. Ronaldo can't believe it himself!
...
66': How did Benzema miss that? Marcelo finds Ronaldo in the box and he lays it on for the French striker who misses by miles!
...
63': Modric comes off to a standing ovation. He's done well in midfield today to move the ball forward. Jese Rodriguez comes on for the Croatian midfielder.
...
62': BENZEMAAAA... SAVED! All of Ronaldo's skills on display as he lobs the ball into the box but Benzema's header is straight at the goalkeeper!
...
61': BLOCKED! Ronaldo tries to set up Isco but his shot from outside the box finds a defender and the attack comes to nothing.
...
...
55': SAVE! Keylor Navas is tested by a Sanchez shot from distance but he is able to block the effort.
...
51': Espanyol have started the second half better than they did the first. Yet another free-kick is floated into the box but the header is soft and Navas collects it easily.
...
...
...
46': Espanyol have a free-kick but the header is wide of the target. They should have scored there, it was a free header in the box!
...
SECOND HALF kicks off!
...
...
...
...
45': GOAL! Real Madrid counter, Ronaldo sidesteps a defender, avoids another and takes a shot with his left foot that beats the 'keeper! 4-0!
...
45': SAVE! Espanyol get their first real chance and Keylor Navas rushes out to deny them!
...
42': Another foul, this time James is brought down on the right flank by Mamadou. That's their third Yellow Card!
...
40': Luka Modric is brought down with a high boot. Espanyol have been pretty physical ever since conceding. Marcelo has also not been spared.
...
34': Ronaldo skips over the free-kick and James takes it instead but the ball sails well over the bar.
...
33': Marcelo makes a mazy run into the box but his eventual cross is cleared before Carvajal is fouled outside the box - in Ronaldo territory!
...
29': Ronaldo is livid with the referee thinking he has been whistled for a foul when in fact he was offside - just inside Espanyol's half. Ronaldo cracks a smile and walks away.
...
28': Real Madrid really playing like a team at the moment, trying to get their teammates involved as much as possible.
...
...
...
...
...
16': GOAL! James Rodriguez's shot from outside the box makes it 3-0 via a deflection. The Colombian may have been marginally offside though when he received the ball.
...
14': It's all Real Madrid at the moment with Espanyol unable to get out of their own half.
