Real Madrid midfielder Isco provided another superb performance as his brace helped them to a 2-0 win over Espanyol on Sunday evening at the Bernabeu.
The reigning La Liga champions have been fairly subdued in their start to the season, failing to win at home so far but they had Isco to thanks for a good three points against Quique Sanchez Flores’ Espanyol.
Cristiano Ronaldo was the creator for Isco’s first goal, before the midfielder would finish off a good move involving Marco Asensio.
The visitors did have chances to get in the game through Gerard Moreno, but he found it hard to find his shooting boots, hitting the post following a Casemiro mistake.
The home side dominated the game throughout, but chances from the visitors still came as Marc Navarro came close in the second half.
Isco almost netted a hat-trick as he forced Pau Lopez into a good save, whilst Sergio Ramos came close with a header, which narrowly went over the crossbar.
The victory sees Real Madrid get themselves back to relatively good form, but they still sit seven points off league leaders and bitter rivals Barcelona, who beat Las Palmas 3-0 at the Camp Nou earlier in the day.
