Real Madrid welcomed Espanyol at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium earlier today as they looked to collect maximum points at home in La Liga. Los Blancos made a poor start to the game and conceded the opening goal in the eighth minute when Joselu found the back of the net for the visitors. However, Vinicius Junior equalised for the Madrid giants in the 22nd minute before Eder Militao completed the turnaround when he got his name on the scoresheet just 17 minutes later. Carlo Ancelotti’s men went into the half-time break 2-1 up on the scoreline.

Marco Asensio put daylight between the two sides in injury time as Real Madrid ended up earning an impressive 3-1 win in front of their home fans.

Let’s take a look at how each Real Madrid player fared during the match against Espanyol.

GK: Thibaut Courtois – 6.5/10

Courtois made a couple of solid saves at the back but failed to keep a clean sheet today.

RB: Dani Carvajal – 6.5/10

He dealt with the danger when needed and engineered two key chances going forward.

CB: Eder Militao – 7.5/10

Militao cleared his lines when required and did enough to restrict the opposition to just one goal. He also gave Real Madrid the lead in the 39th minute.

CB: Nacho – 7/10

The Spaniard didn’t do much wrong at the back and was a lively presence on the ball. He has got an assist to show for his efforts.
