Espanyol v Barcelona – the Barcelona crunch match

Espanyol v Barcelona

Messi lines one up against Espanyol

Espanyol coach Constantin Galca must be wondering what he has to do to get a break. Not only must he face his team’s more illustrious city rivals and league champions FC Barcelona, his 12th placed team must also get it together to face the same blaugrana rivals home and away in Spain’s Copa del Rey in January. This season Espanyol have found goals hard to come by, especially at home. Averaging only 1.2 goals per game at home, approximately, the periquitos top scorers have been Felipe Caicedo with 6 goals and Hernan Perez on 4.

As far as Luis Enrique is concerned, it will be back to the testing business of staying ahead of Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Barça had hiccoughs at the end of 2015, only drawing away to Valencia (1-1) and at home against Deportivo (2-2). This had the effect of spilling four points and losing their cushion at the top. After the distractions of Barcelona’s successful trip to Japan to claim the World Club Trophy, and the Festive Season, it is time for Messrs Suares, Neymar Messi, Iniesta and possibly Arda to slip back into gear and start accumulating more points.

Our Forecast For Espanyol v Barcelona

Espanyol’s home advantage will count as they run out in front of their own passionate fans. There is nothing Espanyol love more than taking points from their city rivals. However, Barcelona with their immense strength and skill in attack should prove just too much. We expect a narrow FC Barcelona win.
