Real Madrid beat Espanyol 2-0 last night to seal their first victory at Santiago Bernabeu in the La Liga this season.

Real Madrid subjected Espanyol to a 2-0 defeat last night to secure their first home win of the season in La Liga so far. Cristiano Ronaldo helped Isco begin their goals tally with a neat finish after the first half hour. Espanyol were extremely wasteful as they did not make use of several chances to equalise in the second half.

In fact, at one point, Los Blancos seemingly loosened their grip on the game but Isco initiated a stunning counter-attack to go ahead and score his second goal with 20 minutes remaining on the clock. Madrid now sit in the fifth place in the league table, and are seven points behind arch-rivals Barcelona.

However, Real Madrid’s calibre in front of the goal continues to be a worrisome prospect. Zidane’s side had 22 shots on goal and yet converted that into only two goals. THT takes a look at some of the best tweets regarding the match.

One player who grabbed headlines besides Isco was 18-year-old Achraf Hakimi who was quite impressive on his debut.

Last but not least, fans heaped a lot of praise upon Isco for his stunning brace.

Cristiano Ronaldo also was a name found frequently among tweets as fans remained divided on his performance.
