Real Madrid finally win at home thanks to Isco double

Real Madrid finally win at home thanks to Isco double

Madrid-based journalist Lucas Navarrete reports that Real "will try their best to prevent Bale from going to play with Wales this Federation Internationale de Football Association break and are confident about succeeding". "It's muscle fatigue, but we don't like to take any risks", the coach added.

They then stuffed Borussia Dortmund 3-1 away in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

One positive Zidane can take from Sunday's encounter is the increased youth involvement in his squad, with the likes of Dani Ceballos and Lucas Vazquez coming on to feature in the second half.

Bale was this week named in the Wales squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and the Republic of Ireland. "There is no problem between Madrid and [Wales]".

It seemed nearly inevitable that the political discourse of the day would also find its way into Sunday's clash, with BBC News reporting 761 people were injured by police attempting to stop the voting in the Catalan referendum.

After hearing Duke's comments, Cruz told CNN it was "irresponsible" to spin the island's devastation so positively. Additionally, he accused Cruz of "poor leadership" and wrote that "they want everything to be done for them".

Real Madrid have yet to win at home this season, which has seen them already fall of La Liga pacesetters, Barcelona, at the top, behind by 7 points. Zidane's side had previously dropped points to Valencia and Levante at the Santiago Bernabeu before suffering a shock defeat to Real Betis last time out.

"We would love to play all our games here at the Bernabeu", Zidane said when asked if his side were negatively affected by the demanding atmosphere of their stadium. Espanyol aren't much better off, though - Javi Lopez, Oscar Duarte, and Adrien Lopez are all sidelines, and they lack the quality of depth that Madrid have to deal with those injuries. We must prove ourselves again every day - that is what I like about this job, and my players too. "The players want to show that after some bad results we are able to turn things around".

"I'm not getting involved in that". It is a club issue, a discussion between the club and Cristiano. "There will be no problems between them".

Meanwhile, Marco Asensio and Isco joined Cristiano Ronaldo in the final third as Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema missed out through injury.

Zidane says he has agreed a contract extension, but made clear he had no wish for his own public event.
