Bale has missed nearly half the minutes since he joined Real Madrid

Espanyol would have themselves to blame for losing the match against Real Madrid as they wasted many chances which would have resulted to goals for them.

"We want to keep doing what we've been doing and to win well", he said.

"It's true we've dropped points in the league, but tomorrow we have a chance to change things". The match starts at 19:45 on 1 October 2017. We must prove ourselves again every day - that is what I like about this job, and my players too.

"I'm not going to get involved in issues between the club and Cristiano Ronaldo, but I don't think that there's any problem between them", Zidane said.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the only member of Real's famed "BBC" frontline to be available against Espanyol.

Zidane was delighted to see Marco Asensio follow the likes of Karim Benzema, Isco, Dani Carvajal, Marcelo and Raphael Varane in signing a new deal with Madrid this week.

Bale's fitness is crucial to Wales's hopes of qualifying for the World Cup. 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.

By that time, Real Madrid were already ahead through Isco's opener, but the visitors' renewed intensity and tempo after the restart changed the dynamic of the contest.

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.

Speculation over Ronaldo's future at Madrid will not affect the club top goal scorer's performances, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has said. However, Madrid have yet to win at the Bernabeu this season, and Espanyol have pulled off some impressive draws this season.

Gareth Bale is not in the Real Madrid squad list.

As for Espanyol, Pablo Piatti was ruled out of the match due to a muscular problem, which saw Marc Roca come into a team which included both Gerard Moreno and Leo Baptistao in the final third of the field.
