Espanyol – Barcelona : Preview & Prediction
The margin of 8 points on the relegation zone is the espanyol visiting card, which after the initial difficulties is close to the middle ranking. Good performance of Blanquiazules against Athletic Bilbao, despite the advantage of Gerard Moreno and the second soporific time, which saw the two teams settle for punticino. It does not punticini but travels in stride towards the Barcelona title. And to think that after 34 minutes Real Sociedad had knocked down the Blaugrana, capable of reassembling from 2-0 to 2-4. When players such as Suarez (two goals and an assist) and Messi (punctuation on a free kick and away all the goals) get into their posts, anything is possible, even giving abysmal gaps to the pursuers, such as +9 at Atletico Madrid, +11 at Valencia and above +19 at Real Madrid. The Valverde coach will have to give up both Coutinho and Iniesta, but Dembelè could start from the start next to Messi and Suarez. Sanchez Flores will play instead with a 4-3-1-2, in which Pablo Piatti will be the inspiration for Baptistao and Gerard Moreno.
In the Liga the leaders Barcelona and Espanyol are separated by 27 points.
The Blanquiazules have conceded goals in 8 of 12 home games.
The Blaugrana are unbeaten away from the Super Cup with Real, after which they got 10 wins and 5 draws.
The Espanyol has not won an official derby for 11 years, in which he has accumulated 16 losses and 2 draws.
Besides the wealth of talent, Barcelona also has a defensive strength never seen before. Neymar and the Super Cup were just bad omens and this team aims to win everything, including the King’s Cup. For Espanyol to oppose it will be really difficult.
