Real Madrid bounced back from their midweek Champions League exit with a 2-1 comeback win over Espanyol - although it was hardly convincing from the stuttering champions.

Espanyol stunned Real by taking a first-half lead through Valdo, but the hosts hit back with goals from Gonzalo Higuain and captain Raul to extend their lead to eight points over second-placed Barcelona.

The win should also allow Real coach Bernd Schuster to breath a little easier, with the German coming under the spotlight following a run of five defeats in seven matches, culminating in that costly European loss against Roma.
