Espanyol vs Real Madrid Preview

 

Espanyol vs Real Madrid

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – RCDE Stadium

Date: 27th February 2018

Kick-off time – 19:00 GMT

Real Madrid and Espanyol seem to have a friendlier relationship than their respective relationships with Barcelona and this is understandable given the hatred they both have for the La Liga leaders.

Espanyol have not been too resilient against this Real Madrid side in recent times and Madrid have enjoyed some good results when they visit the RCD stadium.

The Catalan side are far from form favourites in this game as they head into this match off the back of four straight draws.

That run started at their derby draw with Barcelona and they have failed to win a game since early in January.

This game does not look like the one they can use to get back to form given the stature of their opponents .

Espanyol have lost their last 5 matches against Madrid without netting a single goal.

Real Madrid are back to form and getting better with every match they play.

Los Blancos have won their last five games heading into this match, and they have netted at least 3 goals in each of those matches.

A brace from Cristiano Ronaldo and a goal each from Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale helped them beat Alaves last time out.

Ronaldo has scored 12 times in his last 7 outings and looks likely to get another here.

They have taken an average of 2.08 points per away game this season.
