Real Madrid are in top form since returning to action. In their past four matches, they’ve outscored their opponents 10-2, moving into a tie with Barcelona atop the La Liga table. During this run, Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema have led the scoring pace with three goals apiece.
Goals have been difficult to come by for Espanyol, though the defense has mostly been stout. Apart from a 3-1 defeat to Levante on June 20, Espanyol has allowed just one goal in its three other matches since resuming their season on June 13.
With seven matches left to play, Espanyol are currently bottom-dwellers in the league. They trail Eibar—the 17th-place club and last to avoid relegation—by eight points. Espanyol haven’t participated in the second division since the 1993-94 season, but FiveThirtyEight gives the club a 94% chance to go down this year.
