Espanyol vs Real Madrid

Espanyol players are bracing for a Cristiano Ronaldo backlash when they host Real Madrid on Saturday in La Liga.

The Portuguese international is looking to score his first goal of the season after being shut out in Real's first two games.

In all, Ronaldo has not scored in his past seven games - five for Real and two for Portugal.

``It's true that he hasn't had the start we are accustomed to but he is a very ambitious player who can decide a game in no time,'' Espanyol midfielder Victor Sanchez said to Marca. ``I don't think that goal drought will affect him.''

The 30-year-old Ronaldo is in his seventh campaign with Real and coming off one of his best seasons since his arrival in 2009 from Manchester United.

He scored 61 goals in all competitions in 2014-15, 48 of which came in 35 league games, to finish as the top scorer in La Liga for the third time in his career.

Despite Ronaldo's impressive numbers, Real finished the year empty handed.

Rivals Barcelona won the Primera Division, Copa del Rey and Champions League.

``He will be hungry and determined to silence the critics,'' Espanyol defender Ruben Duarte said to Marca.

``He has not scored for Real or his national team and will want to rediscover the feeling and the joy of beating a rival.

``But in any case, we are working so that this does not happen.''

Espanyol won their league opener 1-0 against Getafe but lost 3-1 at Villarreal the following weekend.

History suggests that Sergio Gonzalez's side will struggle because Ronaldo has scored in 10 previous games against Espanyol.

Moreover, Real, who began their campaign with a goalless result at promoted Sporting Gijon, showed their goalscoring power in a 5-0 win over Real Betis prior to the international break.

Los Blancos, however, will not be at full strength.

Real Madrid right-back Danilo is out for a month because of a foot injury while on international duty with Brazil, while midfielder James Rodriguez will be sidelined for four weeks with a thigh injury picked up while playing for Colombia earlier this week.

Real coach Rafael Benitez is expected to hand Spanish midfielder Isco a start in place of Rodriguez while Dani Carvajal will take Danilo's position in defence.

Real are two points adrift of Atletico and Barcelona, who have had perfect starts to the league and face each other at the Vicente Calderon stadium on Saturday.

``A draw between Atletico and Barca would be a a very good result for us,'' Real Madrid president Florentino Perez said to the Spanish press. ``But we don't fear anyone.

``We have a great coach and a fantastic team.''

Real's Keylor Navas, looking to keep a clean sheet for a third successive game, will start in goal for the first time since his failed transfer to Manchester United.

Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann is expecting a thrilling encounter when his team hosts defending champions Barcelona at the Estadio Vicente Calderon on Saturday.

Barca won the four meetings between the sides last season but the Rojiblancos strengthened their team this summer and Griezmann says his side can upset the visitors.

Both teams go into the contest after winning their first two La Liga games.

Atletico opened their season with a 1-0 victory over Las Palmas before clinching an impressive 3-0 triumph at Sevilla.

``We had a great pre-season and we have started the campaign well,'' Griezmann told his club's official website.

``This is a great game for us and we will come out determined to give everything we have and win this match to make it three wins in a row.

``Barcelona always try to hold possession and we need to press them forward, be strong at the back and try to score.''

Griezmann is likely to lead Atletico's attack with Fernando Torres while Jackson Martinez is expected to start on the bench.

Brazilian defender Filipe Luis has recovered from a muscular injury and will start for the first time since returning to Atletico this summer on a permanent transfer from Chelsea.

The ESPN FC crew answer your tweets about who will win the match between Barca and Atleti, first one to win a title and the best-coached team in Europe.
Atletico won the Primera Division title two years ago and finished third behind Real Madrid and Barcelona last season.

The Rojiblancos, under coach Diego Simeone, have won just one of their 13 encounters in all competitions against Barca.

One of those was a 1-0 home triumph in April 2014 in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

A Lionel Messi goal gave Barca a 1-0 triumph at the Vicente Calderon in the league in May, the last time the two sides faced each other.

Barca coach Luis Enrique expects another level encounter in Madrid.

``It's always difficult to play against them,'' he said in Friday's press conference.

``It's always a very level game and a complicated one.

``We are two winning sides and Simeone has proved he can win titles and so have I. But we hope to bring home a victory on Saturday night.''

Messi, who has yet to score this season for Barca, became a father for the second time on Friday morning and missed his team's last training session before the game but should start against Atletico.

``The club gave him permission not to train for personal reasons today but he is on the list and he is available,'' Enrique said.

Barca will not be at full strength for this weekend's game with Chilean goalkeeper Claudio Bravo set to miss out with a calf injury that he picked up in training this week and Germany international Marc-Andre ter Stegen is set to make his La Liga debut for Barca this weekend.

``I have full confidence in all of my goalkeepers,'' Enrique added.

``I see Ter Stegen well and ready.''

Brazilian defenders Dani Alves and Douglas are also out injured while Gerard Pique is suspended.

Barca begin their Champions League title defence at Roma next week while the Rojiblancos start their European campaign at Galatasaray on September 15.

Espanyol 0-6 Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo scored five goals and became Real Madrid's all-time top scorer in the Primera Division as he inspired Los Blancos to a thumping 6-0 win at Espanyol.

The Portugal forward's impressive haul saw him move ahead of Alfredo di Stefano and Raul in one afternoon to amass a total of 229 goals in 203 matches - one ahead of Raul, who needed 550 games to reach his tally.

Ronaldo, who had failed to score in either of Madrid's opening league games, needed just seven minutes to open his account against Espanyol, having bagged a treble here last season. He promptly scored again from the penalty spot and then completed his hat-trick on 20 minutes with the help of a cross from Gareth Bale.

Karim Benzema added a fourth before the break, and then in the second half Bale again laid on the pass for Ronaldo to strike for the fourth time and make Real Madrid history. But he was still not done, converting again from inside the area on 80 minutes.

With Madrid's Champions League campaign kicking off against Shakhtar Donetsk next week, coach Rafael Benitez rotated his side by benching Toni Kroos in favour of Casemiro, while injuries to James Rodriguez and Danilo forced him to bring in Isco and Dani Carvajal.

Although they would end the afternoon humiliated, Espanyol made an encouraging start, with Felipe Caicedo forcing Keylor Navas to tip his shot around the post in the opening minutes.

But Madrid soon made the vast disparity in quality show, as Luka Modric looped the ball over Espanyol's defensive line to release Ronaldo, who tucked the ball into the far bottom corner from six yards.

Soon after, Benzema slid the ball into Bale's path in the box, where he was tripped by Alvaro Gonzalez. Ronaldo slammed the spot-kick into the bottom corner, just beyond the reach of Pau Lopez.

Bale and Ronaldo combined again just three minutes later, with the Wales international crossing from the left wing towards the back post, where Ronaldo was waiting to volley into the net.

The former Manchester United man then turned provider for Madrid's fourth goal, receiving the ball from Bale and then laying it across the box for Benzema to tap home at the far post.

The Frenchman nearly hit a fifth for Madrid a minute before half-time but struck the post instead.

Madrid were less rampant in the second half but Espanyol still failed to trouble them. The Catalan side's hapless afternoon was summed up when Salva Sevilla failed to convert from an open goal after Navas had parried Gerard Moreno's header.

But, even in second gear, Madrid and Ronaldo proved ruthless. On 61 minutes, this time from the right, Bale squared to the Portuguese, who calmly rolled in his milestone goal.

And with 10 minutes remaining he struck again, this time turning in a low pass from substitute and former Espanyol player Lucas Vazquez.

He even could even have hit an unprecedented sixth goal in the final few minutes, but struck a half-volley just beyond the far post.

   Atlético Madrid   1   -   2   Barcelona

Lionel Messi came off the substitutes' bench for Barcelona to secure a 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid in La Liga.

Messi, who celebrated the birth of his second son on Friday, did not start the game but replaced Ivan Rakitic on the hour mark and proved the difference.

Fernando Torres was presented with a chance to open the scoring for Atletico Madrid early in the first half but the former Chelsea striker sliced his left-footed shot wide.

Luis Suarez then went close for the visitors as his shot from close range hit the crossbar but the first half at the Vicente Calderon remained goalless.

Torres did break the deadlock six minutes into the second half as he raced on to Tiago's through ball before guiding the ball home in off the foot of the post.

But Barcelona hit back swiftly when Neymar curled in a fantastic free kick that left goalkeeper Jan Oblak with no chance.

And the comeback was complete as Messi latched on to Suarez's wonderful lay-off before dinking into the net.

The victory for Luis Enrique's Barcelona maintained their 100 percent start to the campaign.

   Betis   1   -   0   Sociedad

Ruben Castro's first-half effort proved enough as 10-man Real Betis held on to record a narrow 1-0 victory over Real Sociedad at Benito Villamarin.

David Moyes' Sociedad remain winless from their opening three games of the season and sit 13th in the Primera Division standings as Betis move up to eighth with their first three pointer.

The hosts started strongest and Bruno was unfortunate not to open the scoring early on as he sent his close-range header wide before Petros' long-range strike missed the target.

Betis goalkeeper Antonio Adan held out Jonathas' effort as the new Sociedad signing had a go down at the other end for Moyes' side.

Ruben Pardo was denied an opener for the Beticos after the half-hour mark before they took the lead after 41 minutes.

Joaquin sent a cross in from the right channel 20 yards out and Castro was well placed to tuck the ball away as he headed home at the far post to put his side ahead five minutes before the break with his second goal of the season.

The first half was not over yet and moments before the half-time whistle blew, the hosts lost summer signing Brazilian midfielder Petros to a second yellow card.

Castro fired well wide as the second half got under way with the home side hoping to build on their lead, while Jonathas brought a diving save from Adan just before the hour mark as Sociedad searched for an equaliser.

Aritz Elustondo also had a go at the Betis goal as Moyes' side began to dominate but fired wide before Imanol Agirretxe had three great chances to level but each

Real Madrid 1-0 Granada

Karim Benzema scored to help Real Madrid eke out a 1-0 win over Granada and take the overnight lead of the Spanish league on Saturday.

Granada's disciplined defence and the solid goalkeeping of Andres Fernandez held Madrid in check, while the visitors' attack matched their star-studded hosts chance for chance in an evenly-contested first half.

But Benzema tilted the match in Madrid's favor 10 minutes after halftime with a close-range header to put the Santiago Bernabeu crowd at ease.

Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo saw his scoring run of eight goals two matches end as he failed to score his 500th career goal.

Madrid have 10 points, one more than Barcelona who can reclaim the league lead against Levante on Sunday.

Valencia 0-0 Real Betis

Valencia's underwhelming start to the Primera Division season continued as they were held to a goalless draw at their Mestalla home by Real Betis, who played most of the second half with 10 men.

Midfielder Dani Ceballos was dismissed after 48 minutes for the visitors, and although Valencia took the initiative for much of what remained of the game, they failed to create many clear chances.

Towards the end of the match a large number of Valencia supporters called for manager Nuno Espirito Santo to be sacked, expressing their anger at the fact the club have taken just six points from their four league games so far and lost their opening Champions League group stage game to Zenit St Petersburg.

Valencia's first chance of the match came when Sofiane Feghouli beat defender Heiko Westerman with an impressive piece of skill but was denied by a fine save by Betis goalkeeper Antonio Adan.

Former Valencia forward Joaquin was one of Betis' most dangerous players and came close to scoring against his old club, but was denied by young goalkeeper Jaume Domenech.

Betis were forced to change their tactics when Ceballos was shown a second yellow card for bringing down substitute Zakaria Bakkali early in the second half, and spent the remaining minutes trying to quell the threat from the hosts.

They did that successfully, with only Javi Fuego and Santi Mina coming close to scoring, and the Andalusians move on to five points for the season.

Barcelona's players have rallied behind injured team-mate Rafinha ahead of their home Primera Division match against Levante.

The Brazilian midfielder ruptured his right anterior cruciate ligament in Wednesday's 1-1 draw at Roma in the Champions League.

The 22-year-old, who sustained the injury after a heavy challenge from Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan, will undergo surgery this week and be sidelined for around six months.

``Rafinha, stay strong! I hope you make a full recovery soon, I'm sure you'll come back even stronger,'' Barca star Lionel Messi wrote on his Facebook account.

Neymar also wrote a message to his Brazil team-mate that said: ``It's difficult to say something right now but I wish you a lot of patience and all the strength to return as soon as possible.''

Rafinha, a Brazil international, made 21 starts in all competitions for Barca last season and was set to have a more significant role this season.

He had started in two of Barca's three La Liga games.

``This is really nasty news for us,'' Barca coach Luis Enrique said. ``There's no doubt that this was the worst thing about the (Wednesday's) game.''

The draw in Rome brought an end to Barca's perfect start to the 2015-16 campaign.

Luis Suarez gave the Spanish giants a 21st-minute lead but Roma equalised eight minutes later with a wonder goal from defender Alessandro Florenzi.

``We deserved to win but I thought it was a fine all-round performance,'' Luis Enrique said. ``There will always be things to improve.

``We did everything we could to win the game, but Roma were efficient.''

Barca, who won 2-1 at Atletico Madrid last weekend, are two points clear of Real Madrid at the top of the La Liga standings.

The Blaugrana have won their last four league meetings against Levante, scoring 15 goals.

In their last three meetings, Barca have not conceded a goal.

The hosts are also without defender Gerard Pique, who is suspended, and injured goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.

Marc Andre Ter-Stegen will play in goal while Brazilian right-back Dani Alves is set to return this weekend after recovering from a groin strain.

Levante have yet to win this season.

The club that is based in the city of Valencia have taken a point in each of their last two league games, including a 1-1 draw at home with Sevilla last time out.

Coach Lucas Alcaraz and his players accept that they will be big underdogs in Barcelona.

``They have the best players in the world,'' Levante midfielder Victor Camarasa said to Marca.

``But this is football and we are going there ready to battle and hopefully get a point.

``We hope they have a bad day and we can play well.''

Levante defender Ivan Lopez has shaken off a minor knee problem and is excepted to feature on Sunday.

Atletico Bilbao vs Real Madrid

Real Madrid travel to the San Mames stadium to face Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday with Keylor Navas on the verge of breaking a goalkeeping record at the club.

The Costa Rica international, who joined Real last summer from Levante, has kept a clean sheet in Real's opening five games in all competitions this season.

Navas is now just 72 minutes away from beating Miguel Angel's club record of going 431 minutes without conceding, a mark which has stood since the the 1975/76 campaign.

"My job is precisely that," Navas said to Marca. "As long as I can keep doing it we will all be happy.

"I'm going to give my all so that we give away as few a goals as possible this season.

"Of course the fact that we have kept a clean sheet is also down to the work done by my team-mates, who have helped a lot and are defending well. Without them, I could not do it.

"This is why we are working hard. If there are shots, they need to be saved."

Navas almost did not have an opportunity to set the new record.

He was on the verge of joining Manchester United on transfer deadline day in a deal that would have seen David de Gea move the opposite way but both the moves were not completed.

"I had it very clear in my mind that I wanted to stay," Navas said. "Ever since I signed for Real, it was my dream.

"Obviously, I was very grateful that a great team like United showed an interest in me. But I felt I had not been given a chance at Real.

"What happened was complicated but I have left it all behind me and I'm trying to live in the present which thankfully is very beautiful and something that I've worked for."

Real have not won the Primera Division title since the 2011/12 campaign and have enjoyed a stronger start under new coach Rafael Benitez.

Since their opening goalless draw at Sporting Gijon, Real have won four straight games in all competitions.

Saturday's 1-0 triumph over Granada lifted Real to second place, level on 10 points with Celta Vigo, and they are two points adrift of defending champions and La Liga leaders Barcelona.

Karim Benzema scored for the fourth game in a row to hand Los Blancos their third win of the campaign.

Real will be without injured Sergio Ramos, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Danilo.

Athletic Bilbao have won one of their opening four league games and head into the contest on the back of a Sunday's 3-1 loss at Villarreal.

Ernesto Valverde's men have failed to keep a clean sheet in La Liga this season.

Athletic have collected four points from a possible six against Real in their previous two league games in San Mames and will be hoping to keep up that run on Wednesday.

"We haven't had a good start," Valverde said to Marca. "To have three points in the league is not much and the league is the one that tells you if you are in good condition or not.

"We need to start winning. I know we have Real coming up but we need to win."

Aritz Aduriz, who handed Athletic a 1-0 home triumph over Real back in March, has scored five goals in their last three games and will lead the hosts in attack.
