Real Madrid – Espanyol

Real Madrid hosts Espanyol at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in the Spanish La Liga. Here are our free soccer bets for this match in the capital.

 

The current champions started the new season with some problematic results. Zinedine Zidane’s team lost points on three different occasions and this is the reason why the Los Blancos are currently on 7 points behind the leader Barcelona.

 

Real Madrid’s record so far is 11 points won from three wins, two draws and one loss. Nobody expected such an inconsistency from Real Madrid, but sometimes it happens. The more important thing for them is to make sure that the team will stop dropping points on regular basis.

 

Espanyol on the other hand are currently 13th in the La Liga standings. The Catalans have 8 points won so far and a record of two wins, two draws and two losses. But they are unbeaten in their last three games, which is a positive sign for the Los Perricos. In their last game Espanyol managed to score four goals against Deportivo La Coruna.

 

Let’s have a look at the team news before the game.

 

Real Madrid’s manager Zinedine Zidane still can’t use the injured Karim Benzema, Marcelo, Mateo Kovacic and Theo Hernandez. Meanwhile Gareth Bale is doubtful for the match with a calf injury. It won’t be surprising if Zidane gives him a rest for this game.

 

Espanyol can’t rely on the injured Adrian Lopez, while Javi Lopez and Oscar Gaitan are doubtful for the visit to Madrid. They are still recovering from their latest injuries.

 

Real Madrid are the obvious favourite here. The Los Blancos are not having the most perfect start of the new season, but it’s still too early to write them off.
