The team makes a rather weak season because in 21 matches it managed to get only 24 points and is thus 15th.
Home played decent and in 11 matches he managed to get 17 points. He scored 10 goals and got all 10.
The form of the moment is good enough because in the last 5 games of the championship there are 2 defeats, one draw and 2 wins.
Carlos Sanchez could play in this game. David Lopez should continue in the middle of the field and Diego Lopez will be in the lead.
The team makes a very good season and after 21 matches is the first with 57 points. He scored 59 goals and received only 10 goals.
And he played very well because in 11 matches he managed to accumulate 29 points. He scored 28 goals and received only 5 goals.
The form of the moment is exceptional because in the last 5 championship games it has 5 wins.
I’m expecting Brazilian Paulinho and Coutinho to be in this meeting, as well as ter Stegen who was just a reserve in the cup match.
The two teams have met many times because they play in La Liga every year and of course Barcelona is dominated by this. In the last two championship matches played in 2017, Barcelona scored 3-0 and 5-0 respectively. In the cup they played this year and Espanyol won in the 1-0 tour, but Barcelona came back and won 2-0.
My tip: Espanyol vs Barcelona
Even if Barcelona has a considerable advantage in the championship, I do not think it will leave it soft, especially in the Espanyol derby that must be won.
Barcelona is in extraordinary shape and has all the major players available, so I think it will make a show at this meeting.
Since the Barcelona Cup victory, Espanyol has lost the following 3 matches, each with at least 2 goals.
I’m expecting an easy victory for Barcelona after a match that I think will be very spectacular.
