La Liga stats: Barcelona vs Espanyol

Andreas Christensen had a good game in the Catalan derby. He was good defensively, taking part in 12 aerial duels and six defensive duels. He won 58% of the aerial duels and 83% of the defensive duels. He also tried a header, which was so close to being a goal. Moreover, he recovered the ball 13 times in the game and was the player with the most number of recoveries for Barcelona.

The Catalan derby, even though it started slowly, picked up the pace and soon turned into a feisty draw. Barcelona, even with all the possessions they had, was not as dominant as they would have liked. The red cards towards the end for both teams made the match more interesting. However, if Barcelona fails to get three points, Real Madrid will have caught up to them and has the same number of points as them. Espanyol, on the other hand, would draw inspiration from this draw and try to turn their luck around.
