FC Barcelona vs Espanyol Live Streaming HD

Barcelona overcame their toughest La Liga match to date at the weekend as Lionel Messi scored the winner against Atletico Madrid to extend their lead at the top to fight points.

And with a trip to Malaga on Saturday before their Champions League clash with Chelsea next week, Ernesto Valverde has a lot of tough decisions to make.

But a host of Barca’s top stars are expected to to be given a rest for their clash with Espanyol in the Supercopa de Catalunya on Wednesday.

What is the Supercopa de Catalunya?

The Supercopa de Catalunya is a new edition of the Catalan championship, that has been running every two years since 2014, organised by the Catalan Football Federation

The tournament sees the region’s best two sides in the top tier from the previous campaign compete in the final.

So far it has always been Barca vs Espanyol but with Girono’s emergence in La Liga this season that could change.

In 2012 the format of the Copa Catalunya was changed. There is now two competitions, one for the Copa Catalunya and one for the Supercopa de Catalunya.

The latter will be held between the two biggest teams of the region with a trophy being presented to the winning side.

Barcelona have the most wins of the tournament overall having won the competition eight times, but in the newly formed Supercopa de Catalunya, both Barca and Espanyol have each won it once.
