La Liga - Watch Real Madrid vs Espanyol in the U.S. and the world

April 30, 2022 By Oscar Rojas
Los Blancos could become league champions for the 35th time in case they win the match, but their rivals still have much to play for in the Spanish top-flight.

The time has come to crown a new champion in the Spanish top-flight, and all it will take for Real Madrid to accomplish that feat will be to take all the points against Espanyol in front of their supporters.

Los Blancos get to this game on a four-game winning streak in La Liga, a streak that includes wins against Celta, Getafe, Sevilla, and Osasuna. Unfortunately for this team, the club lost their most recent match across all competitions against Manchester City in a thrilling 4-3 game this past Tuesday.

Although reports from La Liga insiders suggested that Los Blancos may rest most of their top players, the team's destiny will surely rely on what Karim Benzema can do for their cause. The striker tops the league with the highest amount of goals with 25, while also adding eleven assists to his name this season, which makes him one of the most influential players in La Liga. If the player is not available for this clash, then Los Blancos might turn to Vinicius Jr or Rodrygo to keep themselves as a threat in front of goal.

On the other hand, Espanyol will enter this game on a woeful streak that has seen them lose three of their last four games, although those losses have not jeopardized their chances of keeping themselves in the Spanish top-flight. Their most recent win came against Celta Vigo three weeks ago, reaching 39 points up to this point in the season.

Los Periquitos seem to have few chances of making an impact at the Bernabeu, but any chance of success for them will be fueled by whatever former Real Madrid striker Raúl de Tomás can do this weekend. The Spanish ace has scored 15 goals throughout the season, which has attracted quite a bit of attention from other clubs across Europe. If the striker is well guarded by Real Madrid's defense, Sergi Darder will become the go-to guy for the blue and white side due to his contribution to the team's attack that has included three goals and eight assists during the competition.

Here are the key elements we have to consider prior to the start of this exciting game.
