They will play with enthusiasm, pressure and they will try and repeat their result in the first leg of the Copa.” Espanyol fans would be on their toes and would love to see their team put an end to the Barca’s unbeaten league run. The conflict between Barca players and Espanyol fans will definitely heat up this fixture.
