Alaves step into this game looking at the real threat of relegation with a record of seven wins, 21 losses and seven draws over 35 games. The club has had 12 losses in the latest nineteen matches and have netted a total of 28 goals while conceding 60. This has principally been due to the hustle shown by Gonzalo Escalante, who has four goals, and Joselu who has three. In their most recent match, The glorious one defeated Celta 4-0.
Espanyol have a tally of 40 points so far this campaign and will maximize every opportunity in front of them. They dropped points against Osasuna 1-1 last Sunday. The squad has had 10 losses in the most recent twenty matches and to date, they’ve managed 10 wins, 15 losses and 10 draws. When Periquitos have done well, it’s mostly been because of performances from Raul De Tomas and Sergi Darder. Can the pair guidePeriquitos to success here?
Heading into this clash, Alaves have not ruled out any players. Espanyol will be missing Oscar Regano and Keidi Bare.
