Vini Junior opened the scoring, Joselo left his goal for the hosts and Benzema scored two goals in the last minutes.
The result makes Real Madrid oust Betis and lead the championship with nine points. On the other hand, Espanyol still does not know the meaning of winning the current season of the Spanish championship and has only one point in 16th place.
All went well: Chomini and his vision of the game
Chomini did not score any goals in the match, but the key passes that led to a dangerous play in front of the Lecomte goal came from him. The goal scored by Vini Jr., for example, came after a low pass through the entire opponent’s defense that arrived right at the feet of the Brazilian.
Too bad: David Alaba was bombed
A departure from the front of the scoreboard and the consequent decrease in the goalkeeper of the Real Madrid team injured defensive midfielder David Alaba, who witnessed his sector bombarded with attacks at the end of the first half. As a result, he was unable to follow plays or intercept the ball, which gave way to an equaliser.
Vinnie Jr embodies the danger
Not only did the Brazilian score the goal that opened the scoring. During the duel, the main opportunities of the Merengue team came from the feet of the left wing. The highlight of the show was right after the first goal, at 18′, as Vini Jr started from the left and shot inside the area for Lecomte to jump and throw a palm.
Not afraid of Espanyol
The hosts didn’t get discouraged in leaving the score behind and grew into the game. Highlighting Joselu and Sergi Darder who were the creative men and, on several occasions, played the role of the leading defenders, making it impossible for Real to advance across the field easily in the final stages.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side were more consistent in attacks and began to dictate the rhythm of the match, and it didn’t take long to swing the net, with Vinicius Jr. However, the sin was to lower the goalkeeper on the left side with Alaba and give Espanyol the opportunity to start playing and reach a tie. Carlo Ancelotti’s team showed the danger again only in the last minutes, with Benzema’s goal to save the night.
Meet flamingo cubs
Vinicius Sousa has found another player to be revealed at Flamengo: striker Vinicius Junior is a year younger than the midfielder and has become one of Real Madrid’s star players early on. On the other hand, the walks of both since the days of Ninho do Urubu are very different, but they converged again on the grass at Cornellà El Prat Stadium.
Goalkeeper and defender sent off
The referee showed a red card in stoppage time to goalkeeper Lecomte, who missed Ceballos in an intervention on the edge of the area. Having already exhausted the substitutions, defender Cabrera was forced to take over in the final minutes and ended up scoring with a free kick from Benzema.
