Florentino Perez: Real Madrid will ‘categorically refuse’ US La Liga game

After being sacrificed from Real Madrid's match day squad against Espanyol on Saturday by Julen Lopetegui, Vinicius will travel to Leon with the Castilla side to face Cultural. With plenty of chances created many were left puzzled as to how the score was not five or six, nil.

"Espanyol closed us down, but also knew how to attack".

Last season's semi-finalists Roma were second best throughout, although Cengiz Under forced a good diving save from Keylor Navas.

"I don't want him [to play] against us in this division", he said.

Real Madrid produced arguably their worst performance of the season against a rival which has now won just one out of 23 games against them, but Marco Asensio's goal 4 minutes from halftime was enough to give them three points. "Espanyol played very well but we played as a team and did not concede".

Thibaut Courtois finally kept his first clean sheet in Real Madrid colours on his third appearance with his new recruits.

Isco said that his Madrid teammate offers a lot to the team in every game and deserves to win the Ballon d'Or, football's most prestigious individual trophy.

"He is one of our biggest legends and he along with Cristiano know that this will always be his home", he added.

His Roma counterpart called Real "a team of champions", saying Ronaldo's 100 million-euro (S$160 million) exit to Juventus was never going to change that.

"They are strong, but we have to remember our own strength and show it once more". "I wouldn't put the spotlight on one or two players".

He said: "I could hardly have asked for a better debut, at home and in the Champions League and scoring as well, and I'm very grateful to my teammates for helping it go as well as it did".

"Espanyol played well and were organised, and we knew it would be hard", said Lopetegui, who remains unbeaten in LaLiga since replacing Zinedine Zidane in the summer.

And 25-year-old striker Mariano - in his first game since returning to the club from Lyon for £29.7m - struck late on to give Real a scoreline that reflected their dominance.
