Hello from Madrid
Welcome to our live coverage of the La Liga clash between Real Madrid and Espanyol at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real could seal the league title today as a single point with four games remaining would be enough for them.
However, Los Blancos are likely to focus more on Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Manchester City at home.
Because of this, coach Carlo Ancelotti was able to rest some of his best players, including starman Karim Benzema, who has been struggling with some injury problems this season.
That means Ancelotti could opt for an attack consisting of Rodrygo, Marco Asensio and Vinicius Junior while Mariano Diaz also returns to the squad.
Casemiro and Luka Modric could also be rested, meaning Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde could replace them in the middle of the park.
The same can be said for Ferland Mendy but Ancelotti is struggling with a defensive crisis with Nacho and Eder Militao suspended, while David Alaba is struggling with a hamstring injury, meaning Jesus Vallejo and Dani Carvajal could be used at centre-back.
Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic are also out with a calf injury and a dental problem respectively, while Gareth Bale is left out of the squad after recently picking up his seventh injury of the season.
Meanwhile, Espanyol coach Vicente Moreno will be without Keidi Bare due to a knee injury.
However, top scorer Raul de Tomas is available for the guests in this difficult game
