Barca v Espanyol

Barca v Espanyol
If Luis Enrique could choose when Barcelona would play city neighbours Espanyol the penultimate game of the season with the La Liga title on the line would probably not be it.

Espanyol are currently 14th in La Liga, five points clear of the relegation places with just two games remaining. They are virtually safe and that means they could be dangerous as they can play without fear.

Their one motivation could be to spoil Barcelona's party and prevent them from winning the La Liga title.

They don't even have to beat Barcelona to scupper Enrique's chances, with Barcelona level on points with Atletico Madrid and just one point ahead of Real Madrid, even a point would drop Barcelona to third in the title picture.

And what was the result between the two sides earlier this season? A 0-0 draw.

The last time Espanyol made the trip to Camp Nou was a bit better for Barcelona as it finished 5-1.

The last time Espanyol defeated Barcelona in La Liga was seven years ago with a 2-1 victory at Camp Nou in February 2009.
