Real Madrid battled their way to a 2-0 win over RCD Espanyol on Saturday. Alvaro Morata scored the opener in the first-half and it looked like Morata’s goal would be the difference between the two sides.

But, Gareth Bale, who came on in the latter stages after a long injury layoff, marked his return with a superb sprinting goal to provide the comfort margin and ensure a comfortable win at the end.

Gareth Bale’s impact on his return was hailed on Twitter as the Welshman scored in trademark fashion.

But, it was Isco who earned the plaudits from the Los Blancos faithfuls as he chipped in with two crucial assists that saw Real Madrid continue their charge atop the league table.

But, it was another day when Real Madrid shattered a record while their ability to keep the opposition at bay would surely please Zidane.

Overall, Real Madrid fans were happy with the result but felt like their team deserved more goals for their efforts on the day. But, the highlight surely was Ronaldo’s nutmeg on the day, which was an outrageous piece of skill by the Portuguese superstar.
