With Real Madrid now losing back to back games Carlo Ancelotti and his side will look to bounce back in a home game against Espanyol. With the team coming back down to earth after a sensational twenty two game win streak. Ancelotti left Ronaldo on the bench for the Atletico game probably to rest his star man but it back fired when Real came out flat and just couldnt convert the chances they did create. With a bevy of superstars in their squad like Rodriguez, Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo there is no doubt that Real will get back on track. More than likely tomorrow's game will be the bounce back one and I think it's smart to get on Real -2 tomorrow as I see them needing to win here to ensure they stay ahead of the chasing pack in the chase for the League title.
For Espanyol this is a big ask a second away game in four days against a top four side. Espanyol played really well in losing 2-1 to Valencia midweek and this is an even tougher one where they will travel to the Bernebeau. With Stuani, Caicedo and Sergio Garcia there is enough talent up front for Espanyol to give themselves a chance against Real Madrid but I just dont see them scoring enough to stay with Real.
Have to take Real here not a huge play as the line is too high but I like it enough to play it.
