Betting tips and match preview | La Liga Primera

Barcelona welcome Espanyol to the Estadio Camp Nou in a derby match that Barcelona need to win with both Madrid sides hot in their tails.

Barcelona come into this match in excellent form ahead of this crucial La Liga match and they will be looking to maintain their recent results and continue this three match winning streak that they are on. They beat Real Betis 2-0 in their last fixture and that takes their combined goals in the last three matches to an incredible 16.

They have been inconsistent in La Liga with their last six results, they have had three defeats matched with three wins and they will need to win their last two matches to retain their La Liga title.

Barcelona have won 27 of their 36 matches this season and two more wins will see them finish top, they may be level on points with Atletico come the end of the season but their superior goal difference of 75 is 31 more than Diego Simeone’s men, proving that when they win, they win well.

The Catalans will be looking for victory 28 when they face off on Sunday and they will also be looking for their 34th win in 52 matches against Espanyol.


Espanyol Need One More Win

The visitors Espanyol come into this fixture on the back of an impressive 1-0 win at home against Sevilla but a defeat will still leave them mathematically unsafe but only if Sporting Gijon and Getafe win, with one more point all but guaranteeing their safety.

Espanyol come into this match in poor form, despite winning their last match they have been beaten three times in their last six matches and a further two defeats will keep them nervously looking over their shoulder.

They face an uphill task against a Barcelona side that have only been beaten once at Camp Nou and one that is desperate to finish the season on a winning note despite being knocked out of the Champions League.

Espanyol have won 11 matches this season and will be looking for victory number 12, another valuable three points would see them stave off relegation and secure their place in La Liga this season as well as a thank you card from Madrid.

They haven’t been Barcelona in their last 13 meetings and will look to put that right in this fixture. If they do win it will be only their 6th win in 52 meetings between the two sides.


Barcelona head into this fixture with a record of three wins and three defeats in their last six matches. Espanyol have a record of one win, two draws and three defeats in their last six matches.

Both teams are 6/5 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Barcelona are Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi at 9/4 with Neymar at 7/2. For Espanyol Gerard Moreno and Felipe Caicedo are at 14/1 with Hernan Perez at 18/1.

The last time these two sides met Barcelona won 2-0 and the odds of the same result are 9/1.
