How to watch and stream Real Madrid against Espanyol in the United Kingdom and the United States
Real Madrid takes on Espanyol in Barcelona on Sunday and they will be eager to maintain their winning start to the 2022-23 campaign in La Liga. Los Blancos have hit the ground running, recording wins over Eintracht Frankfurt, Almeria, and Celta Vigo in their first three competitive games of the season.
Espanyol has not been so fortunate, however, and come into the game on the back of a disappointing home reversal at the hands of Rayo Vallecano, having managed only a draw in their opening game the week before. Nevertheless, they will take heart from the fact they beat Madrid 2-1 at home last season.
