The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h45.

Los Blancos dropped points for the first time last weekend, after they drew 1-1 with Athletic Bilbao at San Mames.

Heading into the clash, Julen Lopetegui's charges find themselves in second spot in the Spanish topflight, two points behind FC Barcelona.

Espanyol, meanwhile, returned to winning ways last weekend with a 1-0 triumph over Levante, which was their second win of the season.

The Catalan outfit will be without the services of Óscar Duarte and Javi Puado for tonight's clash.

When these sides met in this fixture last season, Los Blancos registered a 2-0 win before Espanyol claimed a 1-0 win in the reverse fixture.

Here's how they line up:

Real Madrid:  Courtois, Odriozola, Varane, Ramos, Nacho, Casemiro, Ceballos, Modric, Isco, Asensio, Bale.

Espanyol: Diego López; Javi López, Naldo, Hermoso, Dídac Vilà; Marc Roca, Darder, Granero; Piatti, Borja Iglesias, Hernán Pérez.
