Reason For Barcelona vs Espanyol Predictions

  • Espanyol have lost their last five league games.
  • Espanyol have failed to score in four of their last six matches.
  • Barcelona are unbeaten in their last eight matches, five of which have ended in victory.
  • Barcelona have kept clean sheets in 41% of their home games.

Barcelona look to heap the misery on local-rivals Espanyol

Barcelona claimed an impressive 4-1 win away at 5th placed Villarreal on Sunday, while Espanyol suffered a demoralising 1-0 defeat at home to fellow relegation battlers Leganes and are now 11pts adrift of safety with just four games of the campaign remaining.

When these two sides last met Lopez put Espanyol in front in the 23rd-minute but goals from Suarez and Vidal saw Barcelona take the lead before the hour mark. The hosts rescued a rare point against their local-rivals thanks to an 88th-minute effort from Wu Lei as the scoreline ended 2-2.

The visitors are in the midst of a losing streak

Our prediction for a Barcelona win-to-nil on Wednesday is backed up by plenty of statistics. The hosts have won four of their last six matches against Espanyol and have kept clean sheets in four of those six encounters. Barcelona head into Wednesday’s clash on the back of three wins and three draws from their last six league games, while Espanyol have lost each of their last five outings and are rooted to the bottom of the table.

Barcelona have won 15 of their 17 home games and are yet to lose at the Camp Nou this season, while Espanyol have already lost ten of their 17 away trips. The hosts have kept clean sheets in 41% of their home matches so far this season and their guests have failed to score in 47% of their away trips, so you can see why we’re predicting a win and a clean sheet for Barcelona this Wednesday.

The hosts can’t afford to drop any points on Wednesday night

As for a final scoreline, we’re predicting a 3-0 win for the hosts who have only failed to score in 6% of their home games this season. Barcelona score an average of 2.94 goals per home game and concede just 0.82 goals while Espanyol score an average of just 0.71 goals on their travels. The hosts’ home matches produce an average of 3.76 total goals with over 2.5 goals being scored in 71% of those matches, all of which ties in neatly with our prediction for a 3-0 Barcelona victory on Wednesday.
