Espanyol took the lead after more than fifteen minutes from a nice attack, which was completed from close by Raúl de Tomás (ex-Real Madrid): 1-0. After an hour, Aleix Vidal doubled the margin. Captain Karim Benzema then narrowed the deficit for the again disappointing Real with an effective shot, but the Madrid equalizer did not come. Benzema has already scored nine times this season in the Spanish League.
Real Madrid are still in the lead in La Liga with 17 points. City mate Atlético Madrid has the same number of points, but a less goal difference. The title holder was 2-0 too strong for Barcelona on Saturday, which is in the middle with 12 points.
Real Sociedad (16 points) can take the lead on Sunday evening in the away game against the still scoreless Getafe.
