Espanyol beat Real Madrid when they last met, but they have never won at the Bernabeu. In fact, they have failed to score in their last four visits, instead conceding 13 goals. It was 2012 when they last picked up one of two points taken from this ground and the hosts should enjoy their visit again.
Here we have compiled a list of active streaks in the top seven tiers of English football, from the Premier League all the way down to the Isthmian Premier Division. All streaks listed here do not carry over from last season and begun when the 2018-19 season commenced in each division.
Ahead of Saturday's 11.30am deadline, we have combed through all 20 Premier League press conferences to bring FPL managers the need-to-know team news and predicted XIs for GW6.
Hull and Catalans come head-to-head with both teams in desperate need of a win. The home side need that win more having lost their last nine whilst the Dragons have lost six in a row in the league. It’s been a season to forget for Hull and they will want to break their losing sequence before it is out.
St Helens finally secured the League Leaders’ Shield last week but won’t have been celebrating too much with the bigger prize of the Grand Final still to play for. Saints will host either their opponents in this game, Warrington, or Castleford in the semi-final.
The Champions League minutes and performances of heavy-hitting assets are the talk of FPL, as Gameweek 6’s most transferred in player Eden Hazard benefits due to Chelsea’s Europa League duties.
West Ham have struggled so far this season but the win and performance at Everton last week was much better. Chelsea are on fire themselves right now and their confidence is flying so this has all the hallmarks of a classic London derby so expect goals in this one.
After two poor performances by Everton, they may welcome an away trip as an underdog where they can counter with the pace of Richarlison and Walcott. Arsenal are playing some excellent stuff however and they have to be favoured in a match which should contain plenty of goals.
This will be a difficult match for Man Utd despite their recent upturn in form. Wolves are playing some excellent football and are improving with every game. They will face a more potent attack in Lukaku and company however and the value in both teams to score is appealing in this one.
Southampton have improved in recent weeks but still look a little vulnerable defending which has not been helped by the various changes in formation and personnel. Liverpool are flying right now and while they may be a little fatigued from midweek, they should break Southampton down eventually.
Neither of these teams are coming into this match in great shape and both need to bounce back and get a result. Huddersfield are struggling to score goals and while Leicester have not looked great at the back, the hosts have goals in them and they should get back to winning ways here.
This promises to be a highly entertaining affair with Fulham sticking to their principles and playing some nice football and Watford are clearly enjoying their start under Javi Gracia. There have been over 2.5 goals in Fulham's last four league matches and this could easily follow that trend.
Newcastle ended last season in relatively poor form and have struggled so far this season albeit against some of the top teams. They desperately need a result here and that could see this match becoming more open than many expect so there may be good value in both teams scoring.
City were stunned in midweek by Lyon and that will surely spark a reaction in this one which does not bode well for Cardiff. The hosts will aim to keep things tight but City will have far too much pace, movement and overall quality which should see them win this comfortably and early on.
