Espanyol vs Real Madrid Prediction & Betting tips
In Spain, football fans will once again be offered great football this week. During the week there were still the quarter finals in the Spanish Cup on the program and now it is on the weekend again in La Liga with the next match day on. Here, the spectators in the capital of Catalonia can look forward to an interesting comparison between Espanyol Barcelona and Real Madrid.
The hosts are currently in the table only on the 13th place in the table, but at least in the domestic RCDE stage, the Pericos are significantly better on the way. In the Copa del Rey, Espanyol Barcelona came out on Thursday in a home game against Betis Sevilla but not over a 1-1 draw.

Real Madrid certainly does not have the most impressive away record; For this reason too, the betting odds of up to 1.85 are certainly in an interesting area. Despite all the problems at Real, between Espanyol Barcelona and Real Madrid we are assuming an away win for the Madrid team in our prediction.
For Espanyol Barcelona, the launch phase for the 2018/2019 season was excellent. This was reflected in a great balance. After all, even their own supporters probably did not expect their team to win six wins and three draws from their first eleven league games. Accordingly, there were only two defeats for the Pericos on the other side until the beginning of November. Then there was a significant slump in Espanyol Barcelona, which suddenly lost six league games in La Liga until Christmas.
Only at the beginning of the year it was enough for the team of coach Rubi once again for a sense of achievement in La Liga. Not surprisingly, this success succeeded in their own stadium, namely at a home game against Leganes. Man of the match in this game was Borja Iglesias, who ensured the decisive goal to a 1-0 win. Most recently Espanyol had to play in La Liga twice in a row.
As a result, it was no surprise that the out-of-town Pericos entered further away defeats at both Real Sociedad and Eibar. Basically, Espanyol Barcelona is still one of the weaker teams in the Spanish league with only 21 goals in 20 league games. On the other hand, six goals conceded in the past two away games meant that they had to concede 30 goals.
On Thursday Espanyol Barcelona hosted the Spanish Cup in the quarter-final first leg Betis Sevilla. Against the Andalusians, Espanyol Barcelona was struggling and could not develop a particularly good starting position for the return leg in the coming week by a 1-1 draw. In the upcoming league match between Espanyol Barcelona and Real Madrid is a tip for a home win due to the quite strong home strength at least worth a consideration. After all, Espanyol Barcelona has already won six of its nine home games. Coach Rubi is unlikely to fall back on injured Gaitan, David Lopez, Pedrosa and Naldo on Sunday night.
Real Madrid :
In Real Madrid, the club continues to be very restless – with the form curve in the Madrid has in recent weeks, all in all clearly up again. Nevertheless, a third place in the table and ten points behind leaders Barcelona still do not ensure a good mood for the Royal. Therefore, the topic championship for Real Madrid seems to be done early in the season. Finally, it is unlikely that Barca will give this lead out of hand.
Nevertheless, it is of course important for the Royal, also in La Liga in the coming weeks to make a good figure. Coach Solari’s side have done very well in the recent games.
So it was initially at Betis Sevilla a 2-1 away win and last weekend, Real Madrid prevailed in the home Bernabeu in the top match against Sevilla. In this match, the Madrid convinced by a good defensive performance and in the final quarter of an hour caused Casemiro and Luka Modric by their results for the deserved 2-0 home win.
Away is the balance of Real Madrid in La Liga so far only mixed. Although there were already four wins and two draws in the foreign, but in contrast, four defeats are already on the opponent’s place. Additional confidence should have fueled Real Madrid during the week in the Copa del Rey. After all, there was a 4-2 victory here at home in the quarter final at home against Girona. In the match between Espanyol Barcelona and Real Madrid. Apart from the injured Franchu and Vallejo, coach Solari probably has all the players at Espanyol.
