Match Preview
Real Madrid will try to extend their positive run of results this Tuesday when they visit Espanyol for a round 26 match in La Liga (LL). While Los Merengues are third in the standings (51pts, W15, D6, L4), a win here won’t see them move past second-placed Atletico Madrid.
In fifteenth, Espanyol (28pts, W6, D10, L9) have struggled of late. Los Pericos are riding a seven-game winless run in LL (D5 L2), although at the same time they have not lost in their last four thanks to consecutive draws against Barcelona, Celta Vigo, Villarreal, and Deportivo La Coruna.
On the other hand, Real Madrid are riding a five-game winning streak in all competitions, and have lost just once in his past ten games (W8, D1, L1). Zinedine Zidane’s men are coming off of a dominant 4-0 home win over Alaves the last time out, and they seem to have left their early-season struggles in the past.
The head-to-head record shows a clear supremacy for Real Madrid. In all competitions, they have 11 straight wins and no losses in 22 games (W19, D3). Will the hosts end the negative streak in this one?
Players to watchCristiano Ronaldo is a man on a mission right now. The Portuguese superstar has been on top form of late, and has scored 12 times in the last seven games across all competitions. He netted a brace during Madrid’s 4-0 win over Alaves last time out.
Gerard Moreno has been the best player for Espanyol this season, with ten goals in 25 LL appearances. The 25-year-old has been directly involved in three of the team’s last four goals.
Stat attack: Real Madrid have scored 2+ goals in four of their last five away matches, and have won three and drawn one game in four. Los Merengues are riding an 11-match unbeaten run on the road.
Espanyol have not won their last four LL games at home (D3, L1). Four of their last five home games across all competitions have seen under 2.5 goals scored.
