Barcelona vs Espanyol Betting Tips 14/02/2022

Akshay Nayak, Senior Author

Barcelona will travel to the RCDE Stadium, home to RCD Espanyol for Round 24 of the 2021/2022 La Liga season. The fixture is slated for the 14th of February, and the kickoff is at 1:30 IST. Barcelona will be looking to continue a fine run of form that has seen them win 3 of their last 5 matches, while Espanyol will be hoping to arrest their slump, as they have lost just as many games in their last five fixtures.

Teams Status


The 2021/2022 season has not been the best of years for Barcelona, by the club’s standards. Losing Lionel Messi in the summer hurt their performances, quite expectedly, but no one could have thought they would be 15 points behind league leaders Real Madrid.

They have scored 32 goals, conceded 23, and sit fifth, one point behind Atletico Madrid, who occupy the final Champions League spot on the log. Barcelona is the league’s in-form team, though, with 3 wins and 2 draws over their last five fixtures. Memphis Depay is the leading goalscorer for the club with 8 goals and 2 assists. Luuk De Jong and teenage sensation, Ansu Fati, have three goals apiece.

For team news, Barca has a long list of players currently sidelined with injury, including Memphis Depay, Ansu Fati, Sergi Roberto, and Clement Lenglet.


Moreno Vincente’s Espanyol have not had the best of seasons, grabbing just 27 points from a possible 66. They lie in 13th place on the standings, 7 points away from the last European spot and 9 points away from a relegation spot.

They have scored 26 goals in the league, so far, and have shipped 30 goals in 7 wins, 3 draws, and 9 losses. They will hope to arrest a poor run of form that has seen them record 3 defeats over the last 5 games. However, they have a man in the form upfront, in the form of Raul de Tomas, who has scored 12 goals and provided 2 assists.

Espanyol’s team news: The club will be missing Aleix Vidal and Herera Yangel, who are doubts for the fixture as they remain sidelined with injury.

Tipster’s Angle

Barcelona holds the upper hand against Espanyol, and it’s no surprise that bookies have favored the Catalan side to come away from this fixture with a win. From the H2H, over the last 5 games between these two sides, Barca won on 4 occasions, with the odd game ending in a 2-2 draw. Here are our tips for the game:

Tip: Barcelona To Win Or Draw @ 1.27

Although Barca have not been anywhere near their best this season, they managed a one-nil win over Espanyol when the two sides met in November 2021. Their form has picked up of late, and with three wins and two draws, their gradual resurgence under Xavi is likely to continue. Barcelona to win or draw at 1.27 odds is available at the 22bet sportsbook.

Tip: Total Goals Over 2.5 @ 1.838

Barcelona may have been racking up 1-0 victories of late, but their opponents have shipped 12 goals in their last five La Liga matches. Espanyol’s form means they are likely to concede more than one goal, having conceded at least 2 goals in 4 of their last 5, and scoring in all 5 games.

A feisty encounter is expected, as the history of these matches shows, and the likelihood of a multi-goal result is high. Total goals over 2.5 at 1.838 is available at the 1xBet sportsbook.


Barcelona will look to leapfrog Atletico Madrid and strengthen their hold on a Champions League position, seeing that the league is all but lost. Espanyol are in poor form, but they remain a genuine threat to Barcelona. However, the Catalan giants are more likely to come away with a victory from this encounter.
