Stadium: RCDE (Cornella de Llobregat)
Referee: Guillermo Cuadra
Espanyol will face Sevilla in Saturday's second match in the Spanish La Liga. Sevilla has had a surprisingly poor start to the season, but despite this and the field factor, they are still quoted as slight favorites.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
The Catalans have four points after four rounds: defeats to Rayo Vallecano and Real Madrid, a 2:2 draw with Celta, and a minimal 1:0 away win over Athletic. So far, there is no solid impression of their game. Although the team is in 15th place, they are +3 away from the relegation zone and have the same number of points as 12th-placed Girona. In other words, Espanyol could well climb into the top ten if they are successful on Saturday.
The match against Manchester City only convinced us that the team is currently in huge trouble. The Southerners were playing the English champions, but a 0:4 home defeat to Manchester City says a lot. Before that, Sevilla also lost at home to Barcelona (0:3). Even before that, they defeated Osasuna and Almeria and a home draw with Valladolid. Now, they sit in 17th place, with just one point after four rounds.
Expert Betting Tips
Espanyol has recently been a comfortable opponent for Sevilla, with five wins and three draws in their eight most recent encounters. The statistics are awful for the Catalans, but now Espanyol has a chance to at least partially improve, considering Sevilla's current form and the Catalans' good mood. We believe that Espanyol will at least not lose on Saturday, and we wouldn't be surprised to see their win at home.
