Real Madrid leads La Liga thanks to goal on video review

MADRID (AP) It took some help from video review to put Real Madrid on top in the Spanish league.

Marco Asensio's first-half winner to beat Espanyol 1-0 on Saturday was initially waived off for offside but eventually stood after assistance from the VAR, which is making its La Liga debut this season.

"In the end there was justice. I'm glad the VAR worked," Asensio said. "I had already told (the referee) I didn't think I was offside."
