Espanyol will be keen to put the memories of losing consecutive home games to Barcelona and Atletico Madrid this weekend, as Valencia visit with their patchy form.
Quique Sanchez Flores’ men had previously won four consecutive matches in Cornella before two of the top three came to town, but their top-half finish does appear to be secure anyway ahead of our Espanyol vs Valencia preview.
- Espanyol 0-1 Atletico
- Sporting 1-1 Espanyol
- Espanyol 0-3 Barcelona
- Deportivo 1-2 Espanyol
Pablo Piatti is a huge miss for the home side, after contributing double figures in both goals and assists this campaign, which is a factor bound to affect our Espanyol vs Valencia predictions.Valencia, meanwhile, bounced back from a four-game winless run with a 4-1 victory over Osasuna
last weekend at Mestalla. On the road, they’ve won just once since the final fixture of January.
- Malaga 2-0 Valencia
- Valencia 2-3 Real Sociedad
- Real Madrid 2-1 Valencia
- Valencia 4-1 Osasuna
Having taken just four points from their last available 24 on the road, Los Che are certainly not favourites for this game, with their defensive frailties also influencing our Espanyol vs Valencia picks.
Espanyol will be strong at home and will want to right the wrongs of their last two games in front of their home support, with Valencia unlikely to stage a rare away victory.
