Storylines

Espanyol: The hosts failed to score in their last match, a 2-0 loss at home to Rayo Vallecano, putting just one of their 13 shots on frame. But it was a Sergi Gomez red card 30 minutes in that put their backs against the wall. A more composed start will be needed here, and they must prioritize defending. As a team that could be in the relegation battle, any point against a top side feels like a win. They’ll need to make it ugly to have a chance.

Real Madrid: Life without Casemiro has fully begun. So far, it’s been Aurelien Tchouameni starting at defensive midfield, replacing the departed midfielder, who now plays for Manchester United. The French international seems like a natural fit despite still being a tad raw. But his comfort level is increasing with his new side. With Espanyol liking to press a bit in the midfield, he’ll need to be quick to get the ball off of his feet, and if he can do that with passes forward to more creative players, Real should roll.

Prediction

Karim Benzema gets his first brace of the campaign as Los Blancos remain perfect on the season. Pick: Real Madrid 3, Espanyol 0
