Real Madrid got off to a fantastic start to the 2021-22 season but last week hasn't been easy for them.

Los Blancos are unbeaten after seven games in the Spanish league but their recent UEFA Champions League upset at the hands of Sheriff put them in the eye of the storm. Besides, this will also be a must-win for them after being held to a draw by Villarreal in the seventh round.

Espanyol, on the other hand, have been struggling in their return to the Spanish top-flight. Vicente Moreno's men had to wait until Matchday 6 to claim their first victory but they lost to Sevilla in the following round. Will they pull off a shock against La Liga leaders?
