Espanyol vs Real Madrid Prediction, Betting Tips & Preview
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 27 January 2019
Kick-Off at 06:45
Venue: RCDE Stadium (Cornellà de Llobregat).
- Real Madrid will play the Catalan opposition for the second time in just three days as they are set to travel to Cornella de Llobregat for matchday 21 fixture with Espanyol on Sunday evening at RCDE Stadium.
- Santiago Solari’s troops made it to four wins in last five games which is one of rare such threads for the team in this season. Los Blancos bagged two late goals last weekend as well when they saw off Sevilla 2-0 at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu to go three points off Los Rojiblancos in the third position of the Primera Division standings.
- Real Madrid is still ten points shy of arch-rivals Barcelona and the title battle may have already been lost. However, there are no doubts the current Champions League holders will be highly motivated to claim the spoils here against the Catalan opposition.
- Espanyol was also in action in mid-week when they dropped a one-goal lead and drew 1-1 at the end against Real Betis in the first leg of their Copa del Rey quarter-final.
