On Sunday, Real Madrid defeated Espanyol thanks to two late goals from Karim Benzema, maintaining its unblemished La Liga record

Karim Benzema scored two back to back goals in the 88th and 100th minutes to take Madrid to thrilling Victory over Espanyol 

Vincius Jr.'s first-half goal was cancelled out by Joselu, and the game appeared headed for a draw. However, Benzema's late goal broke the tie in an exciting conclusion 

The Frenchman gave his team the lead in the 88th minute by volleying Rodrygo's cross at the back post and then settled the game with a free kick in the 10th minute of extra time 

After Espanyol goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte was dismissed for a deliberate foul on Dani Ceballos, the last goal was scored against an outfield player 

After the game, Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos told reporters, "We could see that they were starting to feel a little tired, and we took advantage of that  

"Winning away from home is never easy, but we've done it three times on the bounce," added Toni Kroos. "We're overjoyed." 

Real Madrid now leads the table on goal difference, ahead of unexpected Real Betis, after winning all three of its games this season
