The Barcelona icon will be charged with guiding the club up the La Liga table after Ronald Koeman was fired with the Catalan giants lying ninth.

In our evaluation of this game, we will recommend Melbet and also OdiBet. On this page, you can also learn about the best betting sites in Africa.

FC BARCELONA

Under Ronald Koeman, Barcelona has struggled in La Liga, winning only two of their last four games. The Catalan giants are in dire need of a boost and come into this match with a point to prove.

Barca has won only five of their past 15 games in all competitions and has also been thrashed by Bayern Munich and Benfica in the Champions League group stage.

It’ll be intriguing to watch what changes the midfield legend makes to a team that has only won one of their previous five games, but the attack is one area where he doesn’t have to make any changes.

ESPANYOL

Espanyol,  has struggled this season and now sits in 11th place in La Liga. The freshly promoted side defeated Granada 2-0 earlier this month and will be looking for a repeat performance against their cross-city rivals in this match.

They’ve lost three and drawn three of their six away games, allowing nine goals in the process.
Vicente Moreno’s team has surrendered at least two goals in each of their past four away games, with their lone clean sheet on the road coming on the first day of the season in a 0-0 draw with Osasuna.

FC BARCELONA VS ESPANYOL TIP:

Barcelona has been astonishingly bad in La Liga this season, and they can’t afford to finish outside the top four. The Catalan giants will want to make a statement of purpose this weekend, with Xavi at the wheel. Despite the fact that three or more goals have been scored in only two of the last five head-to-head meetings between Barcelona and Espanyol, we predict this match to be different and go beyond 2.5 total goals. Barcelona has been averaging 2.83 goals per game in La Liga this season, while Espanyol has been averaging 2.08 goals per game.

BETTING TIP 1: 1st Half Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.66 odds at Melbet.

It will be difficult to beat a tenacious Espanyol team, but we believe the Blaugrana will have enough to open the season with a win under Xavi. Players should feel more confident now that they have a new management.

BETTING TIP 2: Barcelona Win @ 1.39 odds at Odibets
