Real Madrid vs Espanyol takes place on Saturday at 1pm (UK time).

Real Madrid’s push to win back-to-back La Liga titles for the first time since 2006/07 and 2007/08 looked likely in the run-up to the World Cup, but a series of poor results has seen them fall seven points behind rivals Barcelona in the race for the top spot. Having lost the Supercopa de Espana final to Xavi’s men, Los Blancos will be determined to get the last laugh and finish above them and win their 36th league title this term.

Three reasons to watch Real Madrid online

Karim Benzema’s bid for a Pichichi double

In 2021/22, Karim Benzema’s dream of winning the Pichichi trophy finally came true as he scored 27 times in 32 La Liga appearances to become just the second player not named Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, to win the award since the start of the 2009/10 season after Luis Suarez. Since 1990, only Messi and Ronaldo have won the Pichichi in back-to-back seasons, and Benzema will be determined to add his name to the greats.

Despite injury problems this term, the Frenchman has found the back of the net 11 times in 15 league games and is just four goals behind Barca forward Robert Lewandowski, who currently leads the goalscoring charts. Having scored 17 times in his last 17 matches across all competitions, he definitely has to form to challenge the Pole and make history.

Fede Valverde 

Some of the Uruguayan’s performances at the start of this season were nothing short of sensational. The midfielder initially struggled for form after returning from the World Cup before registering four goals across his last eight appearances. The 24-year-old has also scored more goals from outside the box than any other La Liga player this term.

Real Madrid’s Brazilian talent

From R9 to Roberto Carlos, Los Blancos have always invested well in Brazilian talent and there is a wealth of it currently at the club. Eder Militao, Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior have forced their way into the side in recent seasons and despite Casemiro’s departure to Manchester United, they will be joined soon by another rising star from South America in Endrick.

Despite not joining the club until 2024, the 16-year-old is already making a name for himself in his native country, with legend Ronaldo already stating that Brazil should have taken him to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The teenager was a hot prospect in the summer, but chose Madrid due to fellow a Brazilian and a legendary goalscorer.

Real Madrid is a huge team, Vini had sent me messages and gave me hope. Cristiano is my idol and he played for Real Madrid, that’s why I chose them and I believe it’s the right choice. God has always been with me and he told me it was the right thing to do,” he told Marca.

“He’s (Vinicius Junior) given me different tips, but I will save them to myself. I have to say that he didn’t just give me tips for now but also for the rest of my life. He’s a very good friend of mine and I think this friendship will last for many years. I hope we can pass the ball to each other and score goals.”

“I spoke with Ancelotti, Rodrygo, Eder [Militao], with the Brazilians,” he said. “Right now I’m with Palmeiras but I will be supporting the team from far away. So I’m hoping that my friend Vini makes a great season, Eder, Rodrygo, so that Real Madrid can win more Champions Leagues and more La Ligas.”

As for the Samba stars currently on the books, Vinicius Junior once again tormented Liverpool as Real came from two goals down in February to haunt Anfield 5-2. Vinicius inspired the comeback with a brace to consolidate his status as one of the best attackers in world football at the minute — and Toni Kroos doesn’t believe he is anywhere near his peak yet.

Asked if Vinicius can continue to shine for Los Blancos in the long term, Kroos told ESPN: “Without a doubt. He hasn’t reached his limit. There are things he can still do better but what he gives us is already a lot.”
