Marco Asensio's first-half goal was all Real Madrid needed to secure a home-win over visiting Espanyol.
Alexis Nunes and Craig Burley square off in predicting some of the more notable fixtures during week 5 of La Liga.

Marco Asensio says he was never given the option to assume No. 7 in the Real Madrid squad after it was vacated by Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer.

"They didn't offer me the No. 7," he told reporters after scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win over Espanyol on Saturday night. "The club never said anything to me about it and I didn't have the chance to decide."

Barcelona contract talks can wait until later - coach Ernesto Valverde

Alexis Nunes and Craig Burley square off in predicting some of the more notable fixtures during week 5 of La Liga.
The ESPN FC panel struggle to find a flaw in Shaka's Rankings which see Barcelona top the list.
