All eyes will be on the RCDE Stadium as Espanyol square off against Real Madrid on Sunday evening. This has largely been a one-sided contest over the years; as both teams met 29 times in the last 15 years, with Los Blancos winning 24 of those clashes, with just two losses.
Will Espanyol be able to make it three wins in 30 meetings, or will it be business as usual for Real Madrid?
Let’s take a look at their chances.

Espanyol’s struggles continued with a disappointing 2:0 loss at home at the hands of Rayo Vallecano; despite having the lion’s share of the possession, Diego Martinez’s men were only able to register one shot on target.
With that loss, Espanyol’s winless streak extended to five games; they have two draws and three losses in that five-game stretch. What’s more? Espanyol failed to score in three of their last five matches; it’ll be interesting to see how they’ll fare against an in-form Real Madrid side.
On the other hand, Real Madrid have had a perfect record so far this season; they’ve won three from three, across all competitions. We would like to point out that Los Blancos have won all of their last four games; this includes their UEFA Super Cup triumph against Eintracht Frankfurt earlier this month.
Additionally, Real Madrid have not had too much trouble finding the back of the net; as they scored at least two goals in all of their last five matches. Carlo Ancelotti’s men will look to extend their winning streak to five games as they pay a visit to the RCDE Stadium.
Espanyol will not be able to call on the services of Sergi Gomez, who picked up a straight red card in last weekend’s clash against Rayo Vallecano; they will also be without Adria Pedrosa and Pol Lozano.
On the other hand, Los Blancos come into this match with a clean bill of health; the only absentee is Nacho Fernandez, who has a physical discomfort.
We’ve already established that Real Madrid have dominated Espanyol in the past; and considering both teams’ recent form, that dominance should continue today. We would like to point out that Los Blancos drew first blood in five of their last six meetings with Espanyol; they were leading at the half-time break in those five clashes.
With that in mind, we believe that Real Madrid will open the scoring, and have the lead at half-time; this option pays at 19/20 odds.
