If you're searching for reliable football betting tips, including our top picks for Espanyol vs Barcelona, you're in the right place:

Barcelona to Win

While Espanyol is sitting in the relegation zone right now, their city rivals are sitting at the top of the standings, with their hands on the trophy already in position.

However, Barca still didn't win the title theoretically, so we don't see them slowing down now. With that in mind, our first Espanyol vs Barcelona prediction is for the guests to win the game.

Robert Lewandowski to Score at Any Time

With Barcelona looking for that final touch on their title campaign and with us expecting them to win this match, they will obviusly have to score a goal or more for that to happen.

And with Robert Lewandowski in the team, it's hard to see him missing out on the action, especially after scoring nineteen goals this season already. So, our second Espanyol vs Barcelona prediction is for Lewandowski to score at any time.

Espanyol – 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, including the possible Espanyol vs Barcelona lineups:

Espanyol

With four losses in the last six games in the league, Espanyol has struggled lately, but that has been the case most of the season as well, so the team is currently sitting in the relegation zone. On the bright side, the fight is not over yet for Espanyol since they are currently three points behind the first team outside of the zone and with five games left to be played in the season, they still have a chance to stay up.

When it comes to team news, only Jose Gragera remains on the sidelines at this moment with an injury, but the rest of the team is in good shape.

Espanyol Predicted Lineup:

Lecomte – Gil, Cabrera, Calero, Olivan – Melamed, Souza – Braithwaite, Darder, Puado – Joselu

Barcelona

With five games left in the season, Barcelona is currently fourteen points ahead of their biggest rivals, Real Madrid, in the race for the title. So, it is pretty clear that Blaugrana will lift the trophy at the end of the season and be crowned as the new champions of Spain, which is a great result for a team that struggled in recent years.

Meanwhile, the team is in good shape with all of the players available for this match, including Ousmane Dembele who missed a lot of the season.

Barcelona Predicted Lineup:

Ter Stegen – Balde, Kounde, E. Garcia, Alonso – Pedri, Busquets, De Jong – Dembele, Depay, Raphinha

Player to Watch: Ousmane Dembele

After spending most of the season on the sidelines with an injury, Ousmane Dembele is finally getting back into team and, hopefully, into good form, so he is our player to watch in this match.

The French winger is having probably his best season at the club yet and he has five goals and five assists in twenty La Liga appearances so far, so Espanyol should keep a close eye on him.
