Real Madrid are fielding a semi-weird line up as they take on 5th place (at the time of writing this) Espanyol. Everyone already knows we dropped two points last weekend and we really cannot afford to do that again so early in the season with tough games ahead, so this is a must win, in my personal opinion.

What do you think the scoreline will be, seeing that we likely not starting Bale? Think Benz will come through? Isco has been impressive lately, does he find himself on the score sheet? We have Courtois in the back of the net for what looks like a Courtois/league and Navas/Champions League rotation (which I commented on a previous post how I am not a fan of that approach). Will we come out with a clean sheet? Did I just use the words clean sheet on a Real Madrid match thread post?

Anyway, time to do our talking on the pitch - you know what’s next: HALA MADRID!
