Verdict Barca vs Espanyol – Round 35 La Liga
3:00 9/7 | Stadium: Camp Nou
Barcelona continued their efforts to pursue Real when La Liga only had 4 rounds left. With a distance of 4 points, “The Catalan giants” are not entitled to drop points.
The confrontation between Barca vs Espanyol is a Catalan derby, but this confrontation has not much meaning because of the decline of Espanyol. This team is currently at the bottom of the La Liga rankings, with a modest 24 points. The distance between Espanyol and the safety group was up to 11 points. This also means the sad truth that Espanyol can come down to the cave at this round, if lost to Barca.
Unfortunately for Espanyol, their opponents in this match did not hold back, when Barca themselves were having problems.

With only 4 rounds and a 4-point gap, Barcelona are required to win for the rest of the season. Also hope the miracle happens with Real Madrid losing at least 2 in 4 matches. With the persistent display of the Spanish Royal team, Barca actually had no choice but to win.
