  • Real Madrid have won by 2+ goals in 2 of their last 3 home matches (La Liga).
  • Real Madrid have kept 3 clean sheets in their last 4 home matches (La Liga).

Head to Head


Real Madrid have a 114-42 advantage against Espanyol with 34 draws in 190 matches.

Real Madrid Form


Real Madrid recently won by 2+ goals in five straight matches, starting with 4-1 and 5-3 victories at the FIFA Club World Cup.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side won 4-0 against Elche and 2-0 at Osasuna in La Liga. They fell 2-0 behind at Anfield in the Champions League before beating Liverpool 5-2, Karim Benzema scoring twice in the second half.

Los Blancos have failed to win in three games, an unlucky 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid followed by a 1-0 defeat against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semi-final first leg. 

Real Madrid are coming off a 0-0 draw at Real Betis where they had 62% possession and 15-8 shots.

Real Madrid Injuries & Team News


Centre back David Alaba and left back Ferland Mendy are injured.

Espanyol Form


Espanyol have been inconsistent this season and sit two points above the relegation zone in La Liga.

Diego Martínez’s side have lost three of their last four away games, including 1-0 at Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey. 

Espanyol lost 2-1 at Real Valladolid in their previous match, Martin Braithwaite’s 87th minute goal too late to make an impact.

Espanyol Injuries & Team News


Keidi Bare, Adrià Pedrosa, Gori and Dani Gómez are injured.

Left back Brian Oliván is doubtful.

Verdict

Real Madrid have a fantastic home record against Espanyol which can continue here. I am expecting a comfortable win for Los Blancos and Karim Benzema to score first.
