Espanyol host a very high flying Barcelona side in the Catalan derby with plans to blow the La Liga title race even more wide open than it already is.

Espanyol have had a good season except for their recent results.

They are currently 9th in La Liga standings after collecting 50 points from 34 games.

They trail 8th placed Eibar by goal difference but have played a game more.

Their recent stats shows that they have won only 1 of their last 3 games, and are currently without a win in 2 attempts.

Overall, they have won 3 of their last 6 games.

Their home form has been good except for their last match where they lost 0-1 to Atletico Madrid.

Prior to that loss, they won 4 straight home games.

Top of the table Barcelona will consider this game the most important Catalan derby in recent times.

They will have to win all their remaining games if they hope to win the league.

They are currently on a good run of form after winning their last 3 league games, including victory away in the El Classico.

They have lost 2 of their last 5 away games, and they have scored at least 3 goals in each of their last 3 league matches.

Winning at Madrid has definitely given them a major boost.
