Espanyol slug it out with Sevilla for their Spanish Primera Division outing on Saturday at the RCDE Stadium.

However, having lost eight of their previous 12 meetings with their visitors, they will have it all to do in order to upset the odds of (2.80) with LionsBet.

Ten of the previous 47 encounters between both sides ended in stalemate and the same betting firm is putting up (3.20) for another one here.

The White and Reds will not be short of confidence too, after shocking Atletico Madrid 2-1 at Wanda Metropolitano in their midweek Copa del Rey clash.

Sevilla are sixth on the log with 29 points, two points adrift of Villarreal and a win at the RCDE Stadium could see them outrun the Yellow Submarines on the table. The betting firm is offering (2.65) for another away win.

Espanyol are unbeaten in their last four games and will be hoping to count on home support to avoid defeat at the price of (1.35).

Not many goals will be expected in this engagement, knowing that the Budgerigars have only managed seven goals in their last six matches while Vincenzo Montella’s charges have scored four goals in their previous three duels. The bookies have quoted (1.65) for under 2.5 goals to surface in the tie.

Though goals will not be many here, both sides are still tipped to find the back of the net at the price of (1.75) with LionsBet having done similar in their previous three meetings.
