PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEP!

That's that as Real Madrid complete what was, in the end, a rather routine 2-0 win for Madrid. Ronaldo will be disappointed he didn't score, but his service was impeccable as ever and it means Real Madrid have finally won a game in the Bernabeu this season

That's all for me, Anirudh Menon signing out

Toodle-ooo!
...
92' OH HO! Ronaldo springs forward and stands up a lovely ball that Ramos, of all the people in white, meets - but surprisingly heads wide
...
91' Nothing happens 
...
90' Literally two minutes for young Borja. TWO MINUTES TO BE ADDED ON!
...
89' OH ISCO OH ISCO OH ISCO! The man plays football like ballerinas dance ballets; he spins Aaron with a lovely little pirouette forcing the defender to hug him to a standstill. Isco is then taken off - for a standing ovation - and Borja Mayoral gets his two minutes
...
87' OH VAZQUEZ! WHAT A CHANCE! Cristiano Ronaldo does brilliantly to work a foot of space on the left and fizz an absolutely lovely ball that lands at the feet Vazquez - who can only find Pau Lopez with his effort. Should have scored, that
...
84' The match is petering out to nothingness... despite Ronaldo's best attempts; Darder does ever so well to ensure the Portuguese' goal tally for the season, in the league remains at 0
...
81' Modric off, Dani Ceballos on as Zidane looks to give his youngsters a run-out
...
80' OH! VAZQUEZ! The corner is worked short and Isco does ever so well to control it on his chest and pass it to Vazquez - who's acrobatic scorpion kick only manages to see the ball deflect off Ramos' path
...
79' OW!!! Modric smashes one at goal and Diego Lopez puts in a brave challenge that means it;s just a corner
...
78' Achraf tries to pick out Ronaldo with a lovely little dink in behind the goal, but Ronaldo's first touch combined with heavy pressure from Hermoso means the great man can't do anything but see it roll off the park
...
77' Real Madrid's defence looks a bit shaky still, and Espanyol win a freekick as Casemiro smashes into Aaron with a ridiculous challenge that earns a deserved yellow
...
76' Isco tries to pick out Vazquez down the middle, but Lopez has read it and comes out to collect
...
74' Espanyol win a freekick ... but Granero wastes it by floating a useless ball out of play 
...
72' Moreno does well to win a corner off Ramos... CHANCE! Espanyol play the corner short before sending it in deep where Navarro is on hand to head well at goal, but Navas is behind it all the way
...
Ronaldo leads a supremely pacey counterattack and 4v3, he feeds it to Asensio. The Spaniard takes a moment, sees Isco drop away from the defenders and passes it to him... He, in turn, smashes it to the far post
...
71' GOOOOOOOOOOAL! ISCO!!!!!
...
70' OH MY! OH MY! RAMOS HAS A SLIP IN CONCENTRATION AND GIFTS THE BALL TO BAPTISTAO INSIDE THE BOX, BUT NACHO DOES SUPREMELY WELL TO GEt IN HIS WAY!
...
69' EI! EI! ASENSIO! Aaron nips away from three people before feeding the ball to Kroos who in turns plays it to Asensio - whose shot is deflected away for a corner. Zidane rolls his dice for the first time as he takes off Kroos for Vazquez
...
67' Oh, that's a blow! Sanchez is feeling his left knee and it looks like he'll have to be taken off... and former Madrid boy Esteban Granero is on!
...
66' Madrid are looking a touch testy now as Espanyol grow into the game... 
...
64' Baptistao almost latches onto a long ball, but Navas pulls off his best Neuer impersonation and clears the ball... Sanchez then ends up pulling Asensio back and that's a straightforward yellow
...
63' OH MY LORD! Baptistao plays a brilliant one-two with Navarro and the Brazilian has the legs to stream away from Varane. The Frenchman does well to keep up, though, and he does well to get his boot in the way of Baptistao's ball across to an utterly free Moreno
...
61' Javi Fuego and Aaron toy with Isco before they play the ball forward where Ramos does well to take the ball away from Moreno.... Madrid flow forward and Nacho sends in a decent-looking cross that Ronaldo volleys into the stratosphere
...
60' The belligerent Sergio Garcia steals the ball of Isco, bullies Modric away before the even more belligerent Casemiro steals it off him.... the Brazilian then does well to win a freekick off Moreno
