Real madrid Midfielder Marco Asensio move Real madrid to the top of laliga table after giving Real Madrid a 1-0 victory over Espanyol. Asensio scored from an angle shortly before the break was sealed,  Julen Lopetegui rested Gareth Bale, a goalscorer in midweek.
Isco missed Madrid first opening when his mis-timed shot flew the wrong side of a post in the fifth minute. 

Espanyol then spurned a gilt edged chance soon after as Hernan Perez and Pablo Piatti combined inside the box, only for the latter to pull his low effort wide of Thibaut Courtois left-hand post.

Real were tidy in possession and hogged the ball for most of the next 20 minutes, but Espanyol were relatively untroubled. Casemiro headed Isco’s corner narrowly wide, but the visitors carved out the best chance of the half in the 35th minute.



But Espanyol continued to appear dangerous when given half a chance. Borja Iglesias’ shot was kept out by Courtois and a minute later the Espanyol forward struck the crossbar with another effort from outside the penalty area.
