Barcelona vs Espanyol – La Liga – Barcelona is a Spanish side the occupies the 2nd place of La Liga with 73 points conquered in 34 matches.
Barcelona vs Espanyol-Barcelona is still chasing Real Madrid, having a 4-points disadvantage and therefore with 4 rounds to go until the end, they have to continue winning and putting pressure on the team from the capital.
Barcelona have been dropping too many points on this return of the competition but what I highlight here was essentially the good performance they’ve had against Villarreal where they’ve won by 4-1 and the team’s attack worked perfectly.
Messi with 2 assists was determinant on the victory of the Catalans. They play first in this round and as I’ve said, only victory matters to keep their title hopes alive.
Espanyol is a Spanish side that occupies the 20th place of La Liga with 24 points conquered in 34 matches. Espanyol have been doing poorly, with the team sitting in last place of La Liga and surely getting relegated.
They could have 1 last shot if they had beaten Leganés on the last match, but at home they’ve lost 0-1 and they are practically out of the fight to avoid relegation.
In that match, I saw a very weak Espanyol, surprising negatively and with some lack of discipline at the end of the match. Raul de Tomas was very angry yelling at his teammates and we can clearly see that things aren’t going well for this club.
Barcelona will come into this match with a dominant posture, just like they do in practically every encounter they play at home.
We will have a Barcelona side with a lot of ball possession, always playing on Espanyol’s midfield and I believe we will see an easy victory from Barcelona in this match.
We have the ML odds very low here and I think that after 45 minutes we will already have Barcelona in the lead.
Espanyol will come into this match very tight and I don’t see them having defensive quality to sustain the pressure of such a strong attack with Messi, Suarez and co.
