Benzema's strike earns Real Madrid victory over Espanyol

Karim Benzema was in top form once again on Saturday as his strike sealed a 2-0 victory for Real Madrid over struggling Espanyol.

Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale were both absent in the LaLiga fixture but Benzema rose up to the occasion to score one and set up another in a 2-0 win at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Saturday's victory means Zinedine Zidane's side, who wore an all-green kit to show support for this week's Climate Summit in the city, move to the top of the table, for a few hours at least, before Barcelona play later at home to Real Mallorca.

Espanyol, who have not won in six league games, stay 19th.
