Isco nets brace in Real Madrid win

Could Gareth Bale miss Wales' final two World Cup qualifiers

"We would love to play all our games here at the Bernabeu", he said.

Zidane is confident the Portugal global, still waiting for his first goal of a LaLiga campaign that got off to a delayed start due to a five-match suspension, will not be distracted ahead of Sunday's match with Espanyol. "We will see if Gareth is with us tomorrow".

"We have to prove ourselves again every day".

"I have already been presented here as coach", he said.

Cristiano Ronaldo's wait for a first LaLiga goal of the season goes on with the Portuguese superstar squandering two excellent chances to get off the mark in the first half.

Benzema will miss out on Sunday with a knee injury, while Bale is doubtful after picking up a slight muscle problem in Germany and with left backs Marcelo and Theo Hernandez also absent, along with midfielder, Mateo Kovacic, Nacho Fernandez will continue on the left of the Madrid defense.

The 28-year-old is in the Wales squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Georgia in Tblisi and then the Republic of Ireland in Cardiff on Monday, 9 October. Oscar Duarte remains out injured with a long-term injury, although Javi Fuego is back from sickness and can feature alongside Sergi Darder in midfield.

After signing a new deal this week, Marco Asensio could start alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale up front.

Ramos was next to come close as the Real Madrid skipper met a Ronaldo cross at the far post, and his header brought a wonderful save from Pau Lopez.

Los Blancos' poor start to the season under Zinedine Zidane has not gone unnoticed by the Spanish press, although there seems to be plenty of calm within the Madrid squad. However, Madrid have yet to win at the Bernabeu this season, and Espanyol have pulled off some impressive draws this season. Real Madrid should be ahead after 24 seconds!

The Spain global was the star of the show and netted either side of half-time, but again Real looked to be lacking their usual bite, even with talisman Cristiano Ronaldo in the starting lineup for the third straight league game.
