Barcelona vs Espanyol Barcelona Free Betting Tips
Do the Blaugrana send their city rivals into second class?
Four games before the end of the season, Espanyol Barcelona is 11 points behind the saving bank. With twelve points still to be awarded, the periquitos would need four wins and the wonder that either Eibar, Celta Vigo or Alavés would lose all remaining league games.
A defeat in Camp Nou and in Derbi barceloní would make the descent irrefutable. In the run-up to the city derby between Barcelona and Espanyol Barcelona, the odds of bookmakers therefore swing clearly in the direction of the Blaugrana, as the odds comparison on a betting basis shows.
After all, Quique Setien’s team needs the points themselves. They are four points behind in the championship fight against Real Madrid, which is why gifts are not allowed on the city rivals. In addition, Barcelona against Espanyol Barcelona must be considered in the forecast that the Blaugrana are still unbeaten at home and scored 47 out of 51 possible points in Camp Nou.
So the only question is how can Barcelona against Espanyol Barcelona tip 1 be effectively combined with another market to get a little more out of the odds. Our choice is the Asian handicap.
Barcelona – Statistics & current form
FC Barcelona got off to a good start without conceding four games in a row after the restart. In general, the Blaugrana have remained unbeaten in all seven games since resumption of play.
Three draws against Sevilla, Celta Vigo and Atlético Madrid led to “only” 15 out of 21 possible points. Because long-term rivals Real Madrid achieved the maximum yield of 21 points, the royals now lead the table with a four-point lead.
Barca cannot afford to lose another point
There is not much to be said for the 27th Spanish Championship, which would also be the third in a row after the successes in 2018 and 2019. Finally Real Madrid still play against Alavés, Granada, Villarreal and Leganés, but should win a maximum of two of these games.
Nevertheless, the Blaugrana must not look at what the Blancos are doing, but must do their own homework and, if possible, get the maximum yield in the final sprint from La Liga. In Barcelona against Espanyol Barcelona tip 1 is considered highly probable simply because of the incredible home strength of the Setien team.
The home strongest team in La Liga
After all, Barca won 15 of the 17 home games at Camp Nou and scored 47 out of 51 possible points in two further draws. It’s hard to imagine that just against Espanyol Barcelona, the bottom of the table, another point will be left at home.
Instead, the 50 home goals, which correspond to the league’s best value by a huge margin, indicate that the Blaugrana are now sending their city rivals with second-rate goal fireworks.
Probable lineup of Barcelona:
ter Stegen – Alba – Lenglet – Piqué – Roberto – Arthur – Rakitic – Fati – Griezmann – Messi – Suárez

Espanyol Barcelona – Statistics & current form
Espanyol Barcelona pulled the rip cord three times in the messed up 2019/20 season. Most recently, Abelardo, who only took over as coach on December 27, 2019, had to pack his bags on June 27, 2020. Rufete should somehow pull the cart out of the dirt in the last league games.
Even under the former Spanish international, the Periquitos did not succeed at all. Rufete had three games and not a single point, so defeat number four for city rivals FC Barcelona would seal their first relegation since the 1992/93 season.
The last ten league away games at Camp Nou have all been lost
Given the home dominance of the Blaugrana, hardly anyone in the Espanyol camp should have any hope of staying in the class anyway. After all, there was rarely anything to get for the underdog in the Derbi barceloní.
For more than 20 duels in La Liga, the Periquitos have not had a threesome against their city rivals. In Camp Nou, the last ten league away games were all lost.
Without Calleri to the best home team in the league
In addition, Jonathan Calleri was replaced in the 88th minute after his substitution at the 0-1 home defeat in the basement duel with Leganés. Rufete has one option less in the bank in this already difficult away game.
Probable lineups of Espanyol Barcelona:
Di. López – Pedrosa – Espinosa – Cabrera – J. López – Embarba – Roca – Da. López – Darder – de Tomás – Lei

Barcelona vs Espanyol Barcelona Free Betting Tips
At Barcelona against Espanyol Barcelona, the prediction is shaped by the home dominance of the Blaugrana, who scored 50 times in 17 games at home and scored 47 out of 51 possible points. Usually Espanyol would have to stand in the back and hope to somehow wallow up a point.
However, because the Periquitos could only avert the impending descent with a threesome and thus have to strive for offensive solutions, we believe it is very likely that the favorite will really take his city rivals apart with the rooms open.
