Date & Time Sunday June 28, 2020, 4:00 PM (EDT)
Cornellà-El Prat Spain
TV Channel

In the Spanish La Liga, Espanyol are set to host Real Madrid at the Cornellà-El Prat. 

Espanyol have been terrible this season and are currently bottom of the La Liga ladder with only 24 points from their 31 games. Espanyol have only won 5 games all season and are currently in a position where they are likely to get relegated. Espanyol lost their previous match as they were beaten 1-0 away from home by Real Betis. It was a poor match for Espanyol as they only managed to maintain 35% of the possession while only having 1 shot on target. Things are looking poor for Espanyol and they are expected to struggle against Real Madrid. 

On the other side of the coin, Real Madrid have been in exceptional form and are currently top of the La Liga ladder with 68 points from 31 games. In their previous match, Real Madrid defeated Mallorca 2-0 at home. It was a comfortable win for Real Madrid with the team controlling 55% of the ball and having 15 shots. Sergio Ramos and Vinicius Junior both scored for Real Madrid during the win. Real Madrid are still in a fight with Barcelona for the title so it is essential that the team keeps winning. As it currently stands, both FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are tied on points. 

Real Madrid hosted Espanyol earlier in the season. Real Madrid were dominant in that fixture as they controlled over 60% of the possession and won 2-0. Raphael Varane and Karim Benzema both scored during the win for Real Madrid.

Looking at all the information, I see Real Madrid winning this match with some ease. Real Madrid are significantly stronger and they should have enough quality to secure the 3 points. The over 2.5 goals seems like a good wager since I see Real Madrid scoring at least 3 times against a weak Espanyol side.
