Real Madrid vs Espanyol Prediction & Match Preview

Real Madrid vs Espanyol Spanish LaLiga Prediction by LeagueLane

Real Madrid vs Espanyol
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 30 April 2022
Kick-off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabéu.

The Royal Whites need just one more point to secure their league title, and they would be eager to get the job done before their second leg of the Champions league semi final against Manchester City.

This added confidence would help them a lot to overcome the one-goal deficit against the Citizens.

Moreover, league titles have been the one area where this team has lacked in the past decade. And since both of their arch-rivals are struggling at the moment, this is the right time to strike.

Moreover, the game takes place at their famed home stadium and fans would be flocking to see their team land the Spanish crown. They hope this would also help their striker Karim Benzema to harden his grip on the Ballon d’Or.

Meanwhile, Espanyol are a team that were promoted to the top flight just at the end of the past season. They have struggled for form all through this current campaign and especially so on the road.

And most importantly they have a poor record against this rival over the years.

By all means expect a win for Real Madrid this Saturday in front of their home crowd.

Real Madrid vs Espanyol Prediction & Analysis

The 13-time European champions recorded a 1-3 win on the road the last matchday, against Osasuna. They are also on a four-fixture winning streak in the league, and almost for the entirety of the league campaign they have been absolutely unplayable at home.

On the other hand, Espanyol lost 0-1 at home against Rayo Vallecano the past game week. They had also lost three of their past four fixtures, and they are completely winless on the road in 2022.

Taking into account these observations, anticipate a win for Real Madrid this Saturday.

  • They have scored the most number of goals in the competition, and only one other team has conceded fewer than them.
