Barcelona Betting Tips & Odds v Espanyol In La Liga Derby | Sunday 13th February
Betting tips, latest odds and main markets for Derbi Barceloní on Sunday as Espanyol face Barcelona in La Liga.
Having beaten Atletico Madrid in a six-goal thriller last weekend at Camp Nou, a revamped Barcelona have a local city clash to deal with as they face Espanyol on Sunday night.
Sitting in fourth, Xavi’s men have a game in hand on Real Betis on third – and could go above them or go level on points depending on their result at Levante a few hours before.
They’ll have to do it without the evergreen Dani Alves, who was having the time of his life at 38 against Atletico with a goal, assist and straight red card, so he’s definitely unavailable.
A lot has been made of the new arrivals at Barcelona and they’ll be expected to continue that winning feeling against an Espanyol outfit in 13th and without a win in five in all competitions.
In fact, Espanyol’s last win came in the Copa del Rey against Ponferradina – on penalties – and their last win at home in the league was mid-December, narrowly beating relegation-threatened Levante 4-3.

Your attentions are most probably fixated on Xavi’s men, so let’s take a look at the best odds and markets for your betslip this weekend.
Aubameyang is line to make his first start after coming off the substitutes’ bench last weekend and is much fancied to get on the scoresheet, either 3/1 First Goalscorer or 10/11 Anytime Goalscorer.
However, how about two goals from the ex-Arsenal ace? Well, BoyleSports have boosted him to score 2+ goals to an attractive 11/2 from 9/2.
One man who made an instant impression last weekend was Wolves’ on loan attacker Adama Traore, who chipped in with an assist. He’s currently 15/2 to score first, but his anytime goalscorer market has been boosted to 5/2 from 9/4.
Ferran Torres will again be a tasty betting option and will line-up as part of a front three. He’s 5/1 to open the scoring, or 6/4 anytime.

Barcelona to keep a clean sheet is currently 8/5, while they’re 9/4 to score Over 2.5 goals. However, if they carry on with their recent trend, then Barcelona to score Under 1.5 goals is priced 11/10.
