Espanyol vs Real Madrid
Despite Real Madrid’s surprise defeat to the Champions League newcomers, Sheriff, things look good on the domestic front for the La Casa Blancas. They are yet to taste defeat in their last 7 La Liga matches (5W,2D). Ancelotti will be looking to bounce back from that historical embarrassment with a convincing win. On the other hand, Espanyol have been welcomed back to La Liga with poor form, winning only one of their last 7 La Liga matches this season. It will be a tough task to ask facing the wounded visitors. As a result, we fancy Real Madrid to emerge victorious at the end of 90 minutes.
Predictions: Real Madrid win.
Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona
Mired in their worst crisis for a generation, what Barcelona really don’t need is a trip to the Wanda Metropolitano , even if Diego Simeone’s side are hardly their usual rumbustious selves at present.
A surprise reverse at Alaves compounded a frustrating few weeks for the reigning champions that saw them drop points at home to Bilbao and draw with Porto in the Champions League, their Achilles heel being a failure to convert chances.
Predictions: Atletico Madrid win.
