Match status: 2019-20 La Liga - Matchweek 16
Kick-off:
Venue: Santiago Bernabéu (Madrid)
A slow start to the season had the Madrid fans scratching their heads on whether Zinedine Zidane was really the right man to take the club forward.

However, things are starting to look up for Los Blancos, stringing up back-to-back victories in most of their recent clashes to exert themselves as huge contenders for the La Liga title this season.

Given the form that Real Madrid are currently in, coupled with home advantage, a win looks the most likely for this star-studded side. They should not even have to break a sweat to secure maximum points against this foe.

Real Madrid v Espanyol Team News

Last time out on the road against Alaves, Real Madrid were miles off their best, scrapping really hard to secure a win over their struggling opponent. Tied at 1-1 heading into the final stages of the games, Dani Carvajal turned savior for Los Blancos, firing the ball right into the corner of the net to clinch all three points for his side.

Meanwhile, Espanyol spurned a great chance to secure maximum points last time out against newly-promoted Osasuna. Leading 1-0 at half-time, Periquitsos were well poised to secure the victory but had their hearts broken at the end of the game.

In the 52nd minute of the game, Osasuna were reduced to ten men as one of their players received his marching orders from the referee. Despite this setback, the visiting contingent managed to turn to tide around, coming from behind to post a 4-2 scorecard.

This Saturday, we will be seeing one of the best European teams of all time taking on a team that have been touted by the media as huge favorites to be relegated come the end of the season. The difference in quality between these two teams is clear for everyone to see.

The hosts have admitted defeat just once all season and are unbeaten in their last eight La Liga fixtures. Six of these fixtures ended in victories for Zidane’s men. Going on, at home, they are invincible in their previous eleven games and had registered two or more goals in eight of their last nine.

The visitors, on the other hand, are winless in their last four fixtures across all competitions, and in their previous three games on the road. They had also conceded twice or more in each of these three games.

When it comes to h2h encounters between this two teams, Real Madrid have been utterly dominant over the years. They have won 13 of their last 14 clashes against this foe and 17 of their previous 19 at this venue.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Real Madrid: Marco Asensio, James Rodríguez, Lucas Vázquez, Eden Hazard, Marcelo, Gareth Bale.

Espanyol: Naldo, Javi López, Matías Vargas, Víctor Sánchez.

Real Madrid vs Espanyol Predictions

The odds are largely in favor of the home side and quite rightly so. They have been ruthless all season and will most likely be coming out of this game with the win.

This game is already a foregone conclusion and is more a matter of how many goals Los Blancos will be grabbing in this one.

The visiting contingent, on the other hand, know that they have no chance of salvaging even a point on this ground and will rather be looking to avoid taking too many hits. Real Madrid should enjoy themselves out there, grabbing a couple of goals against this foe.
