ESPANYOL VS BARCELONA PREVIEW & TIPS
Espanyol enter this Catalan derby having failed to win any of their last eight La Liga (LL) / UEFA Europa League fixtures (D3, L5).
Across all competitions, Espanyol are winless in four home games (D2, L2), despite avoiding defeat in the first half in each of those matches (HT: W2, D2). Intriguingly, they have done just that - by holding Barcelona to a goalless first half - in three of their last four H2H home league clashes.
Undefeated in league derbies throughout the 2010s, Barcelona are appropriately unbeaten in seven league fixtures (W5, D2) ahead of this clash.
Espanyol have failed to score a single first-half goal in any of the last ten H2Hs at home in the top flight.
Away win either half
