NEW LS Bet365 2 Steps Bottom Billboard 1 - Espanyol v Barcelona Tips & Match Preview: Blaugrana are the dominant force in the Catalan derby

Match Preview & Team News

Espanyol and Barcelona will close an exciting La Liga day in the Catalan derby scheduled for Saturday evening at RCDE Stadium. Blaugrana dominated this match-up historically and they head into the clash as heavy favourites. Barcelona won six, drew one and lost one (Copa del Rey) of the last eight Catalan derbies. They bagged six goals without conceding a single at the opposite end in earning the domestic double over the Budgerigars last season.

Espanyol are in huge problems

The hosts sit at the very foot of the league ladder after 18 rounds. The horrific spell of form required actions as the board decided to appoint the former Barcelona defender Abelardo as the new head coach in December. The former Deportivo Alaves manager will make his debut just against Blaugrana on Saturday. He has a big challenge ahead of him as the team took only two points from the last nine league clashes. Espanyol conceded six goals in the last two outings against Osasuna and Real Betis.

Barcelona are lone at the top of the standings

Ernesto Valverde’s troops took advantage of Real Madrid’s slip-up (a goalless draw to Athletic Bilbao) to go two points clear off the arch-rivals at the top of the ladder. They will have a nice opportunity to stay lone leaders here as everything points out to the away win as the outcome here. Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann should have too much for one of the worst defensive lines in the league and the margin of Barcelona’s victory is the only true question here.

Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction

The away win is a huge banker at the 2/5 odds based on both the form and the head to head tradition.

Goals Market Prediction

We will also back the Over 2.5 goals FT at the 4/7 odds since Espanyol are incapable of keeping Barcelona’s stars at bay at this moment. The correct score bet is 1-4 Barcelona at the odds of 18/1.
