La Liga: Real Madrid Defeats Espanyol To Go Top



Real Madrid moved top of La Liga after Marco Asensio’s VAR-awarded goal proved enough to beat Espanyol.

Marco Asensio drilled in a low shot just before the break when Luka Modric’s effort deflected into his path, with the goal given after a lengthy review. Borja Iglesias hit the crossbar for the spirited visitors with a deft chip.

Former Real Madrid goalkeeper Diego Lopez made a fine save to deny Sergio Ramos late on in an otherwise stilted performance by the hosts at the Bernabeu.

The victory takes Julen Lopetegui’s side above rivals Barcelona, who can retake the top spot with a draw or victory against Girona on Sunday.

Espanyol drops to sixth following Atletico Madrid’s 2-0 win over Getafe earlier on Saturday.
