At the Camp Nou in Barcelona, the Catalan derby will start, with which Blaugrandas will fight with Espanyol. This is the match of the 29th round of the Spanish La Liga, where bookmakers are on the side of the future home team. The "All-Knowing" do not doubt that the strongest team of Spain will win in the upcoming game, the only question is with what handicap
After losing 0: 1 against Girona in the semi-official Super Cup of Catalonia, Barcelona held three matches in two tournaments and won them all confidently. In the Champions League, “blue garnet” defeated Lyon with a score of 5: 1, in La Liga, the Valverde team was stronger than Rayo Vallecano 3: 1 and Betis 4: 1. In the standings, Barcelona continues to lead with confidence, before the 29th round Barça’s gap from the nearest pursuer, Atletico de Madrid, is 10 points. Already, there is little doubt that the Catalans will once again become the champions of the country. But I note that a confident victory in the derby at the Camp Nou is sacred.
Toward the end of the championship, Espanyol returned to its proper place, i.e. in the lower part of the tournament table, but there was a time when the “parrots” were not just in the Champions League zone, but in the second position. Before the 29th round lag from Seville and the first six 9 points. In turn, Celta and the relegation zone with 9 points behind. It means that Departure does not threaten to Espanyol, as well as a place in the European Cup zone. In the last five matches, the “parrots” won once with three draws and one loss. Lost 0: 1 Seville, tied with Valencia, Huesca and Athletic, were stronger than Valladolid.
Barcelona is in excellent shape, the last three victories were scored with the handicap -1.5 or more. I believe that the Valverde team will continue the series of confident victories, in addition to the high tournament motivation of the favorite, there is also a motivation for successful performance in the derby.
I took here the stake “Barcelona's victory with a handicap of -2.0”, with a odds of 1.83
