Espanyol v Barcelona Team News

Espanyol v Barcelona is also the clash between the best attack versus one of the worst attacks in LL. Whereas the ‘Blaugrana’ are the side with the most goals scored (59), Espanyol have only 18 goals in 21 matches, less than one per match.

Espanyol have been the only side capable of beating Barcelona this season (if we don’t count the Spanish Supercopa in August). However, after they achieved the 1-0 victory in the first leg of the Copa del Rey quarter-finals, the ‘Pericos’ then lost their next three fixtures.

As for Barcelona, they remain unbeaten after an epic comeback last Sunday at the Camp Nou v Alavés (2-1). Leo Messi became the top free-kick taker in LL with his 20th goal, overtaking Cristiano Ronaldo (19). The Argentinian has scored two free-kick goals in the last three LL clashes.

Players to watch: Philippe Coutinho spent six months on loan as an Espanyol player when he was just 20 years old. Now he is back at the RCDE stadium waiting to score his first goal in a Barca kit.

Espanyol’s top scorer Gerard Moreno (8) has only scored one in the last five fixtures. Where better than a Barcelona v Espanyol clash to find the back of the net again! Moreno has scored 75% of his goals in home matches.
