Barcelona vs Espanyol Spanish LaLiga Prediction by LeagueLane

Barcelona vs Espanyol Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview of the Spanish La Liga match on Wednesday, 8 July 2020. Kick off 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET at the Camp Nou.

Lionel Messi and his team cannot afford any other slip up in the league anymore as they are trailing behind Real Madrid in the table. Even though, Espanyol at the ultimate bottom of the table are unlikely to create any problems at Camp Nou.

The Blaugrana are unbeaten in their last eight fixtures with three draws in it. The trio draws had come within the recent five matches in the campaign.

However, Barca got back on the winning ways in their last match in the league on the road against Villarreal with a 1-4 scoreline.

They are the best team at home based on their points in the table. Having lost none of their 17 home matches until now, Setien’s boys are far from losing against a relegated prone side.

Espanyol is on a five-game losing streak in the campaign and Rufete’s introduction hasn’t been able to change their trend even against the lower part teams in the table.

Periquitos has only 3 wins in their 17 away fixtures in the league until now. They have lost four of the recent five trips on the road giving away three clean sheets in the same period.

Having such a bad form on the road, Rufete and his men will be far from testing the home team who are coming after an exciting win in the league.

Barcelona vs Espanyol Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The host is unbeaten in their last five meetings.
  • Barca has recorded four of the last five wins.
  • Their previous encounter resulted in a 2-2 draw.
  • Two of their recent five fixtures have seen both teams score.

Barcelona vs Espanyol Prediction

Barcelona is back in the business with their recent win in the league schedule. Their home ground advantage is well known and their squad strength is not questionable. With such a bad run in the league, Espanyol will not affect the home team in any way.

The home win in full-time will be the best option but the win with a -1 handicap at 1.50 odds will be a better bet for decent returns in the game. The punters can also go with tips like Over 2.5 goals at 1.44 odds and no BTTS with 1.57 odds as other options in hand for the ninety minutes at Camp Nou.

Barcelona vs Espanyol Betting tips

  • Barcelona to win with a -1 handicap @ 1.50 (1/2).
  • Over 2.5 goals @ 1.44 (4/9).
  • Both teams to score: No @ 1.57 (4/7).
