Real Madrid will be looking to continue their march to the La Liga title this weekend when they host an Espanyol side that are still in the hunt for a Champions League place this season as you can watch the game live streaming online – see below for details.
Jose Mourinho’s men are undoubtedly the team to beat though.
With 14 games to go, they sit 10 points clear of their title rivals and it appears to be only a matter of time until they are crowned Champions.
Their lead at the top could be cut to seven points by the time this home clash with Espanyol gets underway on Sunday evening though with Barcelona in action 24 hours earlier against Sporting Gijon.

Madrid have won their last five home games though – scoring 20 goals in the process – so they will be confident of picking up the three points regardless of the pressure Barcelona put them under.
There were reports of Mourinho moving on at the end of the season, with many suggesting he could be on his way back to the Premier League. Madrid will have to put this to one side and make sure it isn’t a distraction.
Real defender Fabio Coentrao will miss the game after suffering a knock playing for Portugal midweek.
As for Espanyol, they of course have a tough task ahead of them to get something this weekend, and Mauricio Pochettino’s men aren’t in the best run of form either having gone four games without a win.
They still have plenty to play for this season though, sitting just two points from the final Champions League qualification place. This is set to be a tight battle, meaning every game is crucial, even the ones that no-one expects them to get anything out of.
Looking at when these two teams met earlier this season, it ended in a 4-0 win for Madrid with Gonzalo Gerardo Higuaín grabbing himself a hat-trick.
When the latest meeting of Madrid and Espanyol gets underway from 8.30pm on Sunday evening, many will be expecting a similar outcome as Mourinho’s men continue to dominate La Liga.
