Espanyol Up Against It

Live on Skysports 4: Sat 19.00 & 21.00: Espanyol host rampant Barcelona and are 12/1 (Coral) to beat the Champions in El Derbi.

Barcelona are a typically short 2/7 (Ladbrokes) and surely Espanyol fans must be fearing the worst. A draw, 5/1 with William Hill, would seem like a victory for the home side and in fact Coral make the home win coupled with the draw a 3/1 chance.

The derby atmosphere gives Espanyol their best chance at getting anything out of the game and backed by 8 wins on the trot at home (5 clean sheets), have to have some self-belief.

Betfred are offering a very tempting evens about Espanyol scoring at least 1. Looking at Barcelona’s recent games, 21 unanswered goals in 4 league games (and 26 unanswered in 6 in all competitions), that may not seem tempting but the derby atmosphere and stunning home form of Espanyol (actually better than Barca’s this season) means they have a really good chance of getting on the score sheet. Maybe look to both teams to score as well at 11/10 with Betdaq. 4 goals or more is 6/4 at Stan James.

Another Barcelona win to nil is 11/10 (Paddy Power) which may not tempt due to the reasons outlined above and an Espanyol win with a 2 goal headstart is 11/10 with Stan James.

Later on, Real Sociedad are 11/5 with to protect their admirable home record with a win while Valencia arrive as slightly skinny 7/5 favs (Totesport).

Valencia are a little short considering they have just 1 point from the last 12 on the road but have had an awful fixture card away at Barca, Real, Villarreal and Sevilla. Here, they should get at least a draw (12/5, Betdaq).
