Madrid Press: Los Blancos march on towards glory


There is plenty of coverage of Real Madrid’s 1-0 win over Espanyol at the Santiago Bernabeu in this morning’s papers.

A goal from Jese was enough to win on the night, and secure and overall 2-0 win, sending Madrid through to the semi-final of the Copa del Rey. The result also saw Madrid break a number of club records.

And one of those is on the front on Marca today – Iker Casillas has the new club record for minutes without conceding a goal. His clean sheet last night means he has not conceded a goal in 682 minutes of first team football. The previous record was held by Paco Buyo, who went 658 minutes without letting in a goal in the 1994/95 season.

The victory also meant Real Madrid surpassed the club record for consecutive clean sheets. In the same season Buyo set his record, Madrid went seven games without conceding. The current side have gone eight without being breached – an have won every single match in 2014 so far.

AS leads with Jese on its front cover this morning. The young striker admitted after the game he hopes to get more opportunities in the first team and has set himself a target to score 10 goals this season.
