Real play ahead of title rivals Barcelona - and Sevilla - on this occasion so we've got the chance to extend the lead at the top of La Liga should we overcome the challenge from Espanyol.

After the excursions of the Champions League in midweek Zinedine Zidane is likely to make some changes but it'll not be wholesale as the Real coach will be well aware that Espanyol will offer up a challenge.

Confidence should be high though after three successive league wins - and the CL win over Napoli - with Real looking as if we've got some momentum building again.

What will happen in this one though? Cast your vote so we know if you think it'll be all smiles or disappointment for Los Blancos come the full time whistle.
