Espanyol and Barcelona face each other in the big Catalan derby
It’s always a great day for football when Espanyol and Barcelona face each other in the big Catalan derby. These two sides usually offer some great football in the matches between them. Let’s hope that it will stay this way on Saturday night, when they meet in a game from the 15th round of La Liga. Here are our winning soccer predictions for this clash.
Espanyol are currently 8th in La Liga with 21 point won. The truth is that Los Pericos were in a much better position in the league, but after three consecutive losses, they dropped to 8th place. Right now the Catalans have a record of 6 wins, 3 draws and 5 defeat since the beginning of the campaign.
How we said, right now Espanyol are in a run of three consecutive defeats in La Liga. This negative run started with a loss against Sevilla, which was followed by defeats against Girona and Getafe.
Against Getafe in the previous round it was a very dissapointing performance by Getafe. The game at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez ended with a 3-0 win for Getafe. The goals in Diego Lopez’ net were scored by Jorge Molina, Jaime Mata and Antunes.
Barcelona on the other hand are leading the La Liga standings with 28 points, but having just one point advantage in front of the 2nd Sevilla. Los Cules’ record so far shows 8 wins, 4 draws and 2 defeats. In their last five games Barca won three times, made one draw and suffered one defeat.
In their last fixture Ernesto Valverde’s boys enjoyed a 2-0 win over Villarreal at home. It was Gerard Pique and Carles Alena who scored for the champions.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Catalan derby between Espanyol and Barcelona in La Liga. Good luck!
