Real Madrid v Espanyol live stream

Carlo Ancelotti’s men are 15 points clear of Barcelona at the top of the table with five matches remaining this season meaning they require one more point to become Spanish champions again. Last time out Real ran out 3-1 winners against Osasuna at Estadio El Sadar to extend their winning streak to four matches.

As for Espanyol they suffered a 1-0 defeat against Rayo Vallecano at RCDE Stadium in their last league match, leaving them in 13th place on 39 points. Los Periquitos have scored 37 goals and conceded 45 through 33 matches.

Espanyol actually won the last meeting between the sides, triumphing 2-1 at RCDE Stadium in October. Raúl de Tomás struck first in the 17th minute. Aleix Vidal also found the net. Karim Benzema scored for Los Blancos in the 71st minute.

If they can avoid defeat Real will secure the Spanish championship with four games to spare for the first time since 1990, the signs are good as Ancelotti’s side have won eight of their last nine La Liga matches suffering one loss, having won just three of their previous seven in the competition (three wins and one draw) – they have suffered just one defeat in their last 26 home league games which includes 18 wins and seven draws. However they come into this weekend’s fixture suspended centre-backs Éder Militão and Nacho Fernández while Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic and Mariano Díaz remain in the physio room.

Expected to lead them as usual will be Karim Benzema who has been involved in 10 goals in his last 10 La Liga games against Espanyol (seven goals and three assists), including a goal and assist the last time he played against Los Pericos at the Santiago Bernabéu in December 2019. On top of that, Realhave won all three of their home games in all competitions against Espanyol under Ancelotti (two in La Liga and one in the Copa del Rey), keeping three clean sheets while scoring at least three goals in two of those three previous meetings.

Espanyol team news

Espanyol will seek to address a poor run of results on their travels this season with five draws, 10 losses, and just one win in league away contests. Los Periquitos are looking to end a six-match away winless streak (two draws and four losses). They haven’t won away since December 2021 against Valencia.

Vicente Moreno, who has a fully available squad to choose from, will be hoping Espanyol finish strong in the Spanish capital this weekend. The Catalan side have lost the joint-most points of any side via goals conceded in the last 15 minutes of games this season (11 which is level with Valencia), while Real Madrid are the only side not to drop any points from goals conceded in this period.

That being said, Sergi Darder has won nine points with his eight assists for Espanyol in La Liga this season, the joint-most of any player in the division this season along with Athletic’s Iker Muniain and Barcelona’s Jordi Alba.
