Where: Camp Nou, Barcelona

Undefeated Barcelona will play host on Sunday to crosstown rival Espanyol who is battling relegation.

While the individual seasons for each club are in opposite directions, the game will still feature immense excitement. Barcelona is nine points ahead at the top of the table, but a very dangerous Espanyol is in dire need of three points.

The match will be the first for both clubs after the winter break and could set the tempo for the second half of the season.

For Barcelona, a win would continue its undefeated and historic run. But for Espanyol, a win could decide early on whether or not it will face relegation.

With the exciting match just one day away, let’s take a look at the game prediction and what to expect.
