      Analysis: Espanyol vs Barcelona (02 January 2016)
      « Reply #1 on: December 30 2015, 22:39 »

      Espanyol and Barcelona meet at RCDE Stadium, in a match for the 18th round of the Primera División. The head‑to‑head record at this stadium favours the away team, since in the last 5 head‑to‑heads they won 3 and tied 2. Accordingly, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the Primera División, on 25‑04‑2015, Barcelona won by (0‑2). Neymar (17' ) and L. Messi (25' ) scored the goals of the match for Barcelona. The home/away factor is worth special atention, since although this is a match between 13th and 1st of the league table, it’s also a match between the 12th best team in home matches and the 6th best in away matches.

      Analysis of Espanyol

      After 6 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses, the home team is in the 13th position, havinf won 20 points so far. In the last match, they have lost in an away match against Sevilla by (2‑0), after in the previous match they have won (1‑0) at home, against Las Palmas. This is a team that usually plays better at home, where they have won 14 points, against only 6 points in away matches. For the league, Espanyol won 14 points out of 24 possible points, after 4 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in the last 8 home matches.

      They haven’t lost any of the last 4 home matches for this competition. The most recurrent final score in their home league matches was the 1‑0 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches for this competition there is a tendency for few goals, since 6 of the last 8 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 17 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 11 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

      Espanhol come discouraged to this match after a 2-0 defeat against Sevilla, finishing with 2 consecutive victories in official matches. The home team have had many difficulties this season, mainly defensively. So, it's possible to note that the team led by Constantin Galca show serious weaknesses to stop counterattacks of the opponent due to the slow players. However, the best scorer of the home team is the equatorian Felipe Caicedo with 6 scored goals. Anaitz Arbilla continues injured and won't play this match. 

      Analysis of Barcelona

      The away team is currently in the 1st position of the league, with 38 points won, after 12 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against Deportivo La Coruña, by (2‑2). In the last match, they won in a home match against Real Betis, by (4‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since they have won 13 points in away matches and 25 at their stadium, with 28 goals scored and 7 conceded at home, against 12 goals scored and 8 conceded in away matches. In the last 7 away league matches Barcelona has a record of 4 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses, so they have won 13 points out of 21 possible. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (4 out of 7 matches). Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 16 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 5 times but have turned the score around in 3.

      Barcelona come motivated to this match, not only by the conquer of the World Matches, but also due to the victory in the match against Real Bétis. In this match of Catalunha it's foreseen that the team led by Luis Enrique will choose a medium-high block to get the ball possession in areas closer to the opponent's goal. Furthermore, all the Espanhol faults will be taken for Barcelona to apply their best weapon, the counterattack. The uruguayan Luis Suárez scored, by now, 26 goals. The big news to the visiting team is the return of Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal to the competition, after a long punishment period. 

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario to this match will be the existence of some goals. Looking to the performance of both teams we believe that Barcelona will control the match and will take advantage from the best opportunities to score. However, even in a bad moment, Espanhol must be able to create some difficulties to the Barcelona's defense. 
      So, it's expected that the Catalunha match will finish with some goals on the scoreboard.
