Starting XI: Espanyol vs Real

Espanyol will be hoping to pick up their first on of the season when they host Spanish giants Real Madrid at the RCDE Stadium – here are the starting line-ups.

Los Blancos have begun the season extremely well, having pick up three league wins on trot under manager Zinedine Zidane.

Real have reportedly made the La Liga title their main target this season as they have not won it since Jose Mourinho was manager of the club.

Espanyol are in all sorts of trouble at the moment as they have picked up only two points from a potential nine.

The 15th-placed side have failed to beat Real in the two teams' past eight matches and have also conceded at least three goals in their last five matches against the Spanish giants.

The Camp Nou club will want to hold on to their lead over their arch-rivals FC Barcelona on the log this weekend and to do that they will need to extend their run of 15 wins in La Liga.

Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo (Marshalls' odds: Ronaldo to score at 3.1) is expected keep up his impressive goalscoring ways this weekend.

In team news, Real will be without Keylor Navas, Fabio Coentrao and Isco for the trip, while Espanyol will be missing Javi Fuego through suspension.

Here are the starting line-ups:

Espanyol: Diego Lopez, J.Lopez, David Lopez, Duarte, Victor, Perez, Diop, Roca, Piatti, Baptistao, Gerard.

Real Madrid: Casilla; Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo; Casemiro, Modric; Vazquez, Rodriguez, Asensio; Benzema.
