Real Madrid was without Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale on Sunday against Espanyol, and there was no problem, winning 2-0 and matching a La Liga record with 16 wins in a row.
The player that stole the show was James Rodriguez, who scored with winner by nutmegging a defender and finishing with class into the far side of the goal. Check out this golazo.
Nice to have a player like James as a sub to jump in when players aren’t fit, and what a goal from the Colombian. The finish was tricky, and combined with that cheeky nutmeg, it was one of the goals of the week.
