The Derbi Barceloní kicks off tonight at the Camp Nou as FC Barcelona host RCD Espanyol. Don't miss a kick by following our Barcelona vs Espanyol live stream guide below.

Following a disappointing run of form post-lockdown, Barcelona find themselves in second place in La Liga and trail leaders Real Madrid by four points as they go into tonight's Catalonian clash. City rivals Espanyol find themselves struggling at the other end of the table and face being relegated should they not beat the 26-time champions in tonight's derby game.

In their last outing, the Blaugrana comfortably beat Villareal 4-1, though three draws for Quique Setién's side after the season break has allowed Real Madrid to take the driving seat in this year's title race. With only four games left to play, Barça have to continue winning their remaining matches and hope Los Blancos drop points along the way.

Espanyol might not pose much of a challenge today if the form guide is anything to go by. Francisco Rufete's men have been poor since the season restarted, taking only four points from their seven games since early June. That being said, this Derbi Barceloní has more to play for than most as the Periquitos stare relegation in the face. Anything but a win in the Camp Nou tonight will mean the team will be demoted to La Liga 2 for the first time in 27 years.

This Derbi Barceloní clash will be entertaining regardless of the result. Read on for full details on how to get a live stream of Barcelona vs Espanyol no matter where you are in the world with our guide below.
