Espanyol vs Barcelona 14.05.2023
Barcelona will be looking to take a step closer to the La Liga title this weekend when they host relegation-threatened rivals, Espanyol. Barcelona have been at the forefront of the La Liga race this season and a win will get them close to the title this season.
Espanyol have relegation worries hanging over them all season and a loss could deepen their relegation troubles. Therefore, they are expected to give their city rivals some grief as they battle to maintain their La Liga status.
Getting a positive result even at home against Barcelona seems like a bridge too far, but they will dig in their heels and try to frustrate the Blaugrana. Therefore, we reckon that not more than three total goals will be scored in this match. and we are backing Barcelona to win.
