RCD Espanyol v FC Barcelona
KICK OFF: Saturday 8th December 2018 | 19:45 GMT
LA LIGA: Matchday 15 | Estadi Cornellà-El Prat
Espanyol Looking to Block Barcelona Bandwagon in El Prat
No side in the Spanish Primera Liga has more home wins this season than Rubi’s RCD Espanyol. Heading into a game against their city rivals, El Periquitos have picked up five wins in their six games at the Estadi Cornellà-El Prat - including victories over Villarreal, Valencia and Athletic Bilbao. Espanyol have only failed to score once so far this term. With six goals in his last five league outings.
Barcelona are now without the assistance of the enigmatic Luis Suarez, ruled out with a knee injury until the winter break. Also contributing six goals in his last five Liga games, the Blaugrana will be even more reliant on Lionel Messi - a man that hasn’t scored in any of his last five visits to El Prat.
Even without El Pistolero, Barca will be confident of goals against their neighbours - with each of their last eleven league games seeing both sides find the net
- Result Prediction: Espanyol or Draw Double Chance
- Score Prediction: Both Teams to Score
