Real Madrid beat Espanyol 3-0 in a very comfortable game for the giants from Madrid.
Cristiano Ronaldo got the scoring underway from the penalty spot after a dubious handball call against Espanyol. Cristiano Ronaldo had to retake his first successful penalty because Madrid players jumped the gun and entered the box too early. Ronaldo made no mistakes on his second attempt, which was almost identical to the first. After the goal, Cristiano celebrated with the boring, annoying and overdone thumb sucking celebration.
The other goals were scored by Higuain and Benzema.
