Real Madrid returned to the LaLiga summit and opened up a two-point title lead over rivals Barcelona with a narrow win at Espanyol on Sunday.

Casemiro scored the only goal of the game on the stroke of half-time after a phenomenal assist from Karim Benzema as Los Blancos notched a fifth successive post-lockdown victory at RCDE Stadium.

Zinedine Zidane’s side now have the clear upper hand in an exciting title race, with Barcelona’s hopes of retaining their championship dealt a blow on Saturday when Iago Aspas’ late free-kick consigned them to a 2-2 draw against Celta Vigo at Balaidos.

The Blaugrana have a tough game in store against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night, while Real Madrid are next in action against Getafe on Thursday.
