Atletico Madrid vs RCD Espanyol Barcelona Preview & Analysis

Freshly knocked out of the Champions League, Atletico Madrid will be hosting Espanyol Barcelona this weekend, as the current season of the La Liga enters its final stretch.

With a second consecutive Spanish title almost out of reach, the fans had hoped that Atletico would put up good performances in the quarterfinals against Manchester City. After losing the away fixture 1-0, Atletico was held to a goalless draw at home, and the Citizens moved ahead on an aggregate of 1-0. On the domestic front, Atletico's 6-game winning streak was halted by Mallorca, who beat them 1-0. Atletico is currently in the 4th spot on the points table, just 1 point ahead of Real Betis. With just the La Liga to concentrate on, Diego Simone will be rallying behind his boys to secure a Champions League berth.

RCD Espanyol has been quite unpredictable throughout the season and lacked consistency. However, the team does seem to have picked up some form in the recent weeks and has lost just 1 game in its last 5 outings, picking up 10 vital points in the process. Its last game was a home game against Celta Vigo, which it won 1-0, thanks to a last-minute goal by Wu Lei. With that win, Espanyol is now in 11th place in the points table, with 39 points. A win in this game will help it overtake Osasuna, and break into the top half of the table.

Atletico Madrid vs RCD Espanyol Barcelona Betting Tips

With a fully fit squad available for both the clubs, this promises to be a high voltage drama, with neither of the teams wanting to settle for a draw. Espanyol has pulled up some surprises this season, including a win against Real Madrid.

However, we predict that the hosts will have no problem overcoming any challenge that the Catalan club might throw at them.

Bet on an Atletico Madrid win.

Espanyol hasn’t really been fluent in scoring goals while on the road. It failed to score in its last away game against Real Sociedad and has managed just 3 goals in the last 4 away matches. Looking back at the last 17 head-to-head matches, there have been only 4 instances of both teams scoring. Looking at Atletico’s recent defensive record, we think Espanyol will find it difficult to score.

3 of the last 4 head to head games have seen a score of more than 2.5. The last 2 home games for Atletico and 5 of the last 7 away games for Espanyol have seen more than 3 goals being scored. It is, therefore, recommended to bet on a similar outcome in this match too.
