There will be fireworks when Espanyol and Barcelona face each other at RCDE Stadium in the Catalan derby.
Los Periquitos do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team collecting only one point in total from the previous four league fixtures.
Espanyol have been struggling at the back of late, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as underdogs in Sunday’s local derby. The good news for the hosts is that key attacker Raul de Tomas is back from suspension.
Barca, on the other hand, did well to reinforce the squad in the January transfer window, with all Ferran Torres, Adama Traore, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang joining the club.
Since Xavi’s troops impressed in a 4-2 win over Atletico Madrid, away win should be considered. Dani Alves misses out through suspension, while Ansu Fati, Clement Lenglet, and Samuel Umtiti remain in the recovery room.
