FC Barcelona vs RCD Espanyol Prediction 20 November 2021

Tournament: La Liga
Location: Camp Nou, Barcelona
Match date: 11/20/2021 at 20:00

This weekend, we will witness the principled Catalan derby, which will take place as part of the fourteenth round of La Liga.

Back in mid-October, Barcelona beat Valencia, 3:1, after which they do not know the taste of victories in four rounds in a row. Misfires in duels with Real (1:2), Rayo Vallecano (0:1), Alaves (1:1) and Celta (3:3) threw Blaugrana back to ninth position. They have 17 points to their credit, supplemented by a goal difference of 19:15.

After a year in Segunda, Espanyol expectedly returned to the cohort of the strongest clubs in Spain. Having played with varying success against Cadiz (2 0), Elche (2:2), Athletic (1:1), Getafe (1:2) and Granada (2:0) the Parrots scored the same 17 points and are eleventh with statistics scored-conceded goals of 14:13.

Bookmakers overestimate Barcelona's capabilities too much, because the appointment of Xavi as head coach is unlikely to immediately fix all the team's problems. We think that motivated Espanyol will have a good chance of making life difficult for Blaugrana.
