Real Madrid – RCD Espanyol [Recap]

The match between Real Madrid and RCD Espanyol from the Spanish Liga ended in an unbelievable and totally unexpected draw. This means that I’ve definitely lost the bet I placed on the victory of Real Madrid.

The first goal of the match belonged to RCD Espanyol, who broke with a quick counter attack as Verdu picked up Garcia with a terrific pass. The striker beat two men before he found the bottom corner of the net. That was for sure an impressive goal!

In the first minute of the first half’s extensions, Ronaldo added the first goal to his team. Khedira sent in a cross from the right and picked out Ronaldo in the middle of the box. The striker scored a clean volley, leaving Casilla breathless.

When everyone was sure about the result, the 88th minute came with a ravishing surprise. The corner of Espanyol left Real Madrid with no chance to clear it. It eventually fell to Albin who smashed it into the back of the net from close range.

All in all, I think RCD Espanyol made a very nice performance, certainly with the help of a bit of luck. Still, I can’t be happy for the lost bet.

Result: -10 units, bet lost

    Why on earth would Mourinho substitute Morata for Modric when­ Laka is available??

    This was the worst match I’ve seen in a while…the players were selfish and they weren’t able to do ten nice, small pases­ in a row…quite embarassing!
