La Liga: Where to watch Espanyol vs Barcelona live on May 14, 2023

May 13, 2023 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Espanyol and Barcelona will rekindle their rivalry in an epic Sunday night clash at the RCDE Stadium.

Espanyol will face off against Barcelona in a crucial fixture with significant implications for both teams. The hosts find themselves in a precarious situation, battling for survival at the bottom of the table, while their Catalan rivals have their sights set on securing the championship as soon as possible.

Espanyol's form leading up to this vital stage of the season has been a cause for concern. Having won only one of their last 10 matches in Spain's top flight, they have slipped to 19th position in the table, a mere three points away from safety. While they still have a fighting chance to escape relegation, another disappointing result against a formidable Barca side would leave them in an increasingly vulnerable position.

Luis Garcia's team has struggled particularly at home, possessing the second-worst home record in La Liga this season. With just 17 points from 16 matches, they face an uphill battle against the title contenders. Moreover, the Blanquiazules' last victory over Barcelona in the league dates back to February 2009, underscoring the magnitude of the challenge they face in this encounter.

On the other hand, Barcelona has enjoyed an excellent campaign, amassing an impressive 82 points from 33 matches. They have demonstrated their dominance with a record of 26 wins, four draws, and only three losses. Their consistent performance has put them in a commanding position, and they could even secure the title without kicking another ball if their rivals falter in their respective matches.

The strength of Xavi's side lies in their away form, boasting the best record in the league with 37 points from 16 matches on the road. While they have suffered three defeats in away games this season, their overall consistency and firepower make them a formidable opponent for Espanyol.

Notably, Barcelona's absence from European competitions has worked in their favor in the latter half of the season, allowing them to focus solely on domestic success. They enter this match on the back of consecutive victories over Real Betis and Osasuna at home, further bolstering their confidence.

With the potential for both Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid to stumble in their matches, the Blaugrana has a chance to secure the title before the final whistle. However, even if the race extends to the next matchday, it is difficult to envision Xavi's side squandering their strong position.

Team new: Espanyol vs Barcelona

Espanyol will have to do without Jose Gragera due to a muscular injury. However, the return of Martin Braithwaite from suspension should provide a boost for the home team.

On the other hand, Barcelona have a full squad to choose from for this match, with Sergi Roberto returning from a hamstring injury that has kept him sidelined for almost a month. Although Gavi and Raphinha picked up minor issues in their last match, both have recovered and are available for selection.
