Es­panyol v Barcelona

It’s derby day in Cat­alo­nia as a wounded Es­panyol host league lead­ers Barcelona. In the last five der­bies at the Cor­nellà-El Prat, the hosts have bagged all three points on just one oc­ca­sion. How­ever, Barcelona were made to work hard for their three wins and can’t af­ford to rest on their lau­rels on Satur­day. Hav­ing scored eight goals al­ready, Borja Igle­sias will be look­ing to lead his team to derby glory against a Barcelona de­fence of ques­tion­able sta­bil­ity. Luis Suarez could make an early re­turn from in­jury and play a part in the game. But Ous­mane Dem­bele will be the key player for Barca as he looks to build on his ex­quis­ite dis­play against Vil­lar­real.
