BAR vs ESL Dream11 Prediction for Barcelona vs Espanyol La Liga Live Score Daily Fantasy Football Team Tips & Guide


BAR vs ESL Dream11: Barcelona against Espanyol is already a massive game due to the context of its rivalry but it has the added importance of being Xavi’s first game in charge of Barca. The hosts have had a really poor campaign and they have slid into the middle-of-the-table. The club are putting a lot of expectations on Xavi. They come up against an Espanyol side that come into this on the back of a 2-0 win at home to Granada a fortnight ago prior to the international break. The visitors have lost just one of their last six matches and are a defensively stubborn team. It is a special game to kick off for what could be a special appointment at Barcelona. It is unlikely to be a slick style at first as his apparently complex philosophy takes time to work.

Who will win today’s football match?

  • Barca head into the derby with Espanyol in pretty poor form, and are currently ninth in the table. They blew a three-goal lead last time out against Celta Vigo to draw 3-3, conceding in stoppage time.
  • Before that, they did manage beat Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League, but even that followed a disappointing draw with Alaves in La Liga.
  • Espanyol picked up an impressive 2-0 win last time out over a resurgent Granada thanks to goals from Raul de Tomas and Adria Pedrosa. It was an important response from Vicente Moreno’s men after suffering a defeat to bottom club Getafe.
  • Espanyol have won three of their last six and only lost once, so they come into this game in very good form, although Xavi’s homecoming at Camp Nou has a Barcelona win written all over it.

Odds to Win:

The odds in favor of Barcelona to get the win is 1.42 as per bet365.
