It seems increasingly likely that the Jose Mourinho era at Real Madrid will be coming to an end at the conclusion of this season and I am sure he will want to go out with a couple more wins under his belt. The whole reason that Mourinho was brought to the Spanish capital was to return to the Champions League to the trophy cabinet and it seems like the best he will be able to offer at the end of this season is the Copa Del Rey.

The La Liga title has been long gone for Real Madrid after a really poor start to the season and then they suffered the disappointment of falling a little short in the Champions League when losing to Borussia Dortmund in the Semi Final earlier this month.

It hasn't seemed to have affected Real Madrid in their domestic League where they have a 9-3-5 record away from home, but importantly have won 5 of their last 7 on their travels including 4 of their last 5. The win at Atletico Madrid in their last away game all but secured Real Madrid their place as second in the Spanish La Liga table.

Any time that a Real Madrid side travels to Barcelona, there will be a lot of interest, although visiting the second club in that city is not the same as playing at the Nou Camp. Espanyol have been inconsistent at home all season and they are just 6-6-5 here while they have actually conceded more goals than they have scored.

Espanyol have actually failed to win any of their last 4 home games, although they had been unbeaten in 9 in a row before losing 0-1 to Granada in their latest home game.

A bigger worry is the struggles they have had whenever Real Madrid have visited in recent seasons. These sides drew 2-2 in Madrid earlier this season, but Espanyol have lost 4 in a row at home against Real Madrid and they have failed to score in any of those losses.
