Espanyol vs Barcelona – Team form, latest news, and potential lineups
It's always exciting time when Barcelona's city derby comes around, so let's check out the two team in more detail before they meet on Sunday:
Although Espanyol can be happy with their current situation since they are pretty much safe in the middle of the standings after just getting back to La Liga this season, the team is not in good form right now. In the last six games, Espanyol has just one win, along with one draw and four losses. Still, as we said, they are currently safe, nine points ahead of the first team in the relegation zone.
Espanyol will be without the Oscar Gil this weekend through suspension, while Fernardo Calero is doubtful with an injury. On the bright side, the team's top goalscorer Raul de Tomas will be back in the team after he served a suspension in the last game.
Espanyol predicted lineup:
Diego Lopez – Vidal, Gomez, Cabrera, Pedrosa – Darder, Morlanes, Melendo – Puado, De Tomas, Vilhena
It seems that things are coming together in Barcelona after all the tough times they had this season. The team managed to win four of their last six games in La Liga and climb to the fourth spot in the standings, right over the reigning champions Atletico Madrid who they beat last weekend. So, there are many positives at Blaugrana right now.
However, there are still many absences as well. Samuel Umtiti, Sergi Roberto, Ansu Fati, and Alejandro Balde are all injured, while Eric Garcia, Clement Lenglet, and Memphis Depay are fitness doubts. Also, Dani Alves will have to miss the city derby through suspension.
Barcelona predicted lineup:
Ter Stegen – Dest, Araujo, Pique, Alba – F. de Jong, Busquets, Pedri – Traore, Torres, Gavi
