Barcelona 1/3 to beat Espanyol in Sunday’s La Liga clash

Competition: La Liga

Market: Barcelona to beat Espanyol

Odds: 1/3 @ Bet365

La Liga continues this weekend with another massive round of games that will only see the excitement of Spain’s top league continue. There were a number of surprising results on Saturday which saw the table change massively, and the so-called bigger teams that are playing on Sunday will be desperate to avoid an embarrassing result. With this in mind, Barcelona travel to play Espanyol on Sunday.

Espanyol have been in fairly good form this season as they look to put as much space between themselves and the relegation zone as possible. After 21 games they have won six, drawn six and lost nine, while they have scored 18 goals and conceded 28 times. In their last five games they have won twice, drawn once and lost twice, with their last two games ending in defeat. This has seen them onto 24 points, which is seven clear of the relegation zone. While the gap they have between themselves and the bottom three is a good one, they will be all too aware of how quickly this advantage can disappear.

Barcelona have been superb this season and they are the hot favourites to win the league. After 21 games they have won 18, drawn three and they are yet to lose, while they have scored 59 goals and conceded 10 times. In their last five they have managed to win all five, which has seen them onto 57 points. Espanyol will be roared on by their own fans, but they know that the visitors are the favourites to win this game.

Bet: Barcelona to beat Espanyol in Sunday’s La Liga game: 1/3 @ Bet365>>
