Real Madrid vs Espanyol Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Real Madrid are unlikely to let the setback against Athletic Bilbao affect them too much and it was apparent in the Champions League win over Roma. Espanyol have made the most of home advantage by getting back-to-back wins but it is a different story when it comes to games away from the RCDE Stadium. Rubi’s team do attack well and they have seen Real Madrid manage just one clean sheet in the league this season. In fact, the problem of clean sheets has been in place even during the time of Zinedine Zidane, as Madrid have kept just two clean sheets since April. I would opt for goals at both ends in the game.

Karim Benzema may lead the scoring charts at Real Madrid with four league goals but Gareth Bale has been an impressive performer this season. He has been able to contribute a goal or assist in eight of his last nine appearances for club and country. The Welshman has scored three times in his eight games against Espanyol in all competitions. I would back Bale to score anytime.

Both teams to score – 10/11

Gareth Bale to score anytime – 1/2

Real Madrid scored over 2.5 goals in 5 out of their last 10 games played

Real Madrid have conceeded only 4 goals in their last 10 games against Espanyol

Espanyol saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Espanyol saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played against Real Madrid
