Raphael Varane has stated that Real Madrid cannot always win ga!es easily every week.
Los Blancos struggled to a 1-0 win over Espanyol, thanks to a first half strike from Marco Asensio.
Lopetegui rested Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos and Marcelo for the clash and Varane says winning cannot come easy every week.
“We’re not going to win 5-0 every game,” the France defender said to beIN SPORTS .
“We’re going to sweat and we need everyone, we’re going to give everything to get the title.
“We have the ball, but it’s hard to hurt the opponent. We created danger but not as much as in other games. The result is very good.
“They are a team that has many weapons and that presses well. We played as a team.”
