Barcelona vs. Espanyol live stream: Watch La Liga Online


Barcelona host their crosstown rivals Espanyol at the Camp Nou on Sunday, Dec. 18. Here’s all the info you need to watch.

The last La Liga round of matches features the Catalan derby, a very heated affair if we were to go by recent history. The two clubs have met four times in 2016, generating a total of 34 bookings and two red cards in those four contests.

Currently sitting six points back of Real Madrid, Barcelona is looking to close the gap on the league leaders as they head into the three-week winter break. They will have all the regulars available for this one, including Luis Suarez, recently contractually extended through 2021 Luis Suarez.  No doubt Suarez will look to celebrate his new deal with a goal at the Camp Nou Sunday.

Andres Iniesta should feature in the starting lineup along with the rest of the Barca legends, Lionel Messi and Neymar. It will be interesting to see Messi’s performance after he had to watch his archival/nemesis Cristiano Ronaldo lift the Ballon D’Or this week, as the Portuguese won the trophy given to the best player in the world.

Having had all week to prepare for this game, and with too much at stake in terms of standings and local rivalry implications, I think we will see the best version of Barcelona 2016. In the end that might prove too much for Espanyol to handle.
