Barcelona is having a very tough time in the La Liga 2021-22 season and that has resulted in a change of leadership. Former club legend, Xavi, has been put in charge of Barcelona and tasked with bringing it back up to the top of the table. He is going to face his first challenge as the team takes on Espanyol, another team currently in the mid-field and on the same number of points as Barcelona.
Barcelona has won just five of its previous fifteen matches across competitions and is going to be nervous coming up against Espanyol. We have already seen it lose to Celta Vigo, Alaves, and Rayo Vallecano this season. Espanyol is doing well after being promoted to the La Liga and continues to impress all onlookers. It is certainly capable of spoiling Xavi's party in this match.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Barcelona vs Espanyol La Liga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Camp Nou, Barcelona on the 20th of November 2021.
Barcelona is certainly going to be under a lot more pressure than Espanyol coming into this match. Xavi's presence is going to be seen as a major boost to the team and he is someone who is considered to be tactically very astute. This could be something that has been missing from Barcelona's team this season and we could see a different team emerge. There is always a honeymoon period when a new manager takes over where the team tends to start well and we think that is going to happen here as well. Keep in mind that Barcelona has a superb squad led by Memphis Depay. It should be able to get a win in this match.
Bet on Barcelona to win.
