Espanyol took the lead at the Bernabéu after 8 minutes thanks to a goal from the club’s top scorer, Joselu. Coach Carlo Ancelotti’s side quickly resolved the backlog before half-time.
The equalizer came midway through the first half. Vinícius Júnior came in from the left and kicked the ball into the far corner. Even before the break, Éder Militão headed a nice cross with the outside on the right of Aurélien Tchouameni.
In the second half, Rodrygo was close to 3-1, but he kicked the ball against the crossbar from a free kick. Marco Asensio netted Real Madrid’s third goal in injury time.
