Who Might be Victorious in a notoriously tight affair between Alaves and Espanyol?

There has been little to set Alaves and Espanyol apart in recent years, so expect a closely contested match with defences leaving nothing to chance.

Alaves suffered a 3 - 0 defeat at Barcelona, and they will hope to avoid a loss to another Catalan outfit. It took the champions 64 minutes to break the deadlock with a creative Messi free-kick under the wall. Other sides struggle against Alaves, and the hosts can take confidence that they kept Espanyol quiet over two legs last season.

Having picked up a point at Celta, Espanyol will be looking to build on that performance with positive results elsewhere. Quique Sanchez’s men are enjoying a good run of form stretching back to the later stages of last season.

Alaves should put up a resilient performance against Espanyol once again. Expect them to collect maximum points.

Key Match Facts

  • The last four meetings between the two sides have seen no more than one goal scored.
  • Espanyol is unbeaten in their last six league games.
