Match Preview & Team News
Espanyol host Barcelona for the first leg of their Copa del Rey clash on Wednesday evening after finally retaining some consistency, with wins over Malaga and Levante, as well as a draw against Athletic Bilbao, seen in their last three outings. They’ll now be very motivated to hold off the in-form city rivals and have a lot to play for in the second leg, but doing so will be a tough task even at RCDE Stadium.
Barcelona come into the match as La Liga table-toppers and in a furious spell of form, on the back of a 2-4 win at Real Sociedad – which was their third in a row since early January and the 1-1 Copa del Rey draw at Celta Vigo. They have been rock-solid defensively but we’ve seen them play for an extra goal as well, which could be even more worrying for the home crowd.
Blaugrana enjoy a great campaign across competitions and they’ll surely be motivated to make it through to the semi-finals here too, with all top sides still in it. With such an imperative for the win, Ernesto Valverde’s men should be able to put on another convincing performance both at the back and in the final third.
We are used to seeing Espanyol more challenging at this ground but Barcelona have managed three consecutive wins in their head to head matchups, convincingly bagging the points in December 2016, April 2017 and earlier this season, as they outclassed the rivals 5-0 in early September 2017.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
We will now go for another such display and back Asian Handicap – Barcelona to win -1.5, which looks the best value at 4/5!
Goals Market Prediction
We do hope to see a thriller at RCDE Stadium and we’re now also going for Over 2.5 goals FT at 4/7, which many see as banker material in this city derby.
