Reasons For Real Madrid vs Espanyol predictions & Betting Tips
Real Madrid are strong favourites for this match with odds of 1.11 with Unibet. Los Blancos are without a home win in La Liga this season, but will be fancied to get the three points against Espanyol on Sunday.
Valencia, Levante and most notably Real Betis – who won with a 94th minute goal – have all taken points from the Bernabeu in recent weeks, but it’s hard to see Madrid dropping points for a fourth time.
Espanyol have not beaten Real in a decade and have lost their last 10 matches to Sunday’s opponents. However, they are unbeaten in three and were 4-1 winners against Deportivo last weekend.
Madrid have Cristiano Ronaldo back in form, the Portuguese superstar scoring twice in the midweek win at Borussia Dortmund. After missing the first four league games through suspension, he will be keen to get his first La Liga goal of the season against Quique Sanchez Flores’ side.
Ronaldo to score first is priced at 2.88 with Unibet. It’s only a matter of time before he gets off the mark, and with Karim Benzema injured there is even more reliance on CR7 to score.
You can back him at 4.0 with bet365 to score a hat-trick. We’re backing there to be goals here – just two season ago Madrid won both meetings 6-0.
Real Madrid vs Espanyol Form
Espanyol are the team in form coming into the match with three successive wins, including a 6-1 thrashing of Monchengladbach on Saturday. Madrid were 2-1 winners over Alaves on Saturday, after a shock 1-0 home loss to Real Betis three days previously.
Real Madrid Form
Madrid haven’t yet hit their form of last season, and have struggled this season at the Bernabeu particularly. However, away from home they are still strong and have won all their games on the road so far in 2017/18.
Real Madrid Form: WWLWWD
Quique Sanchez Flores’ team are on a three match unbeaten streak, winning 4-1 at home to Deportivo last time out. They are currently 12th in the La Liga standings after six matches.
Espanyol Form: WDWLLD
Real Madrid vs Espanyol Head To Head (H2H)
Madrid’s H2H record against Espanyol is predictably dominant, los Blancos with 35 wins from their 48 previous meetings. Madrid have won the last 10 in a row, their last loss to Sunday’s opponents coming almost ten years ago back in October 2007.
