Espanyol vs Barcelona Predictions & Betting Tips

Espanyol vs Barcelona La Liga Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips. League leaders Barcelona take on their close rivals Espanyol this weekend, who come here on the back of three defeats in a row


Match Date: Saturday 8th December 2018
Kick-Off: 7:45pm GMT
Stadium: RCDE Stadium

Espanyol vs Barcelona Predictions

Espanyol are having a decent season so far in Spain, but they have taken a turn for the worse recently, and they come here on the back of a three game losing run. That has dropped them down to 7th, which is outside of the European places, something that they will be targeting over the coming weeks to get back inside. They have been beaten by Sevilla,Girona and Getafe, all teams who are around them or higher in the league, so it has been a tough run for them and it doesn't get any easier here. They host the strong title favourites Barcelona on Saturday, and they are priced up at 5/1 to win this game with Betfred

Barcelona go into the games this weekend as the league leaders, but they are only one point clear at the top so they cannot afford any slip ups here. With Real Madrid struggling this season, many expect Barca to win the league with ease, although there are other good teams in Spain chasing them right now. They have lost just one of their last six, winning four of those and they come here on the back of a very solid 2-0 victory over Villarreal. Anything other than a win and they could find themselves knocked off top spot by Sevilla, and it is no surprise to see Barcelona as favourites here, priced up at 6/11 with Unibet

Espanyol vs Barcelona Betting Tips

This should be a very good game here, with Barcelona looking to keep hold of their top spot, and Espanyol looking to find a spark and turn around their current three game losing streak. However, Espanyol have shown in recent games that when they face some of the better teams in this league, they struggle and in this one on Saturday night they are taking on the best of the best. We are backing a Barcelona win, and combining it with both teams to score to add value, Espanyol have scored five goals in their last six games, despite losing three of them. The best is priced up at 2/1 with Ladbrokes

We think this will be a high scoring game, with chances at both end of the pitch so we are also backing goals in the game. This could be a very high scoring game so we are taking a chance on over 3.5 goals in the game, which looks good value at 8/5 with Unibet
