Team News: Espanyol
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the sole fitness concern for the Espanyol boss Vicente Moreno to be concerned about from a near full-strength group of players. Miguelón (Knee Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: CE Sabadell
Sabadell manager Antonio Hidalgo has not got a full squad to pick from. Néstor Querol (Torn Knee Ligament) and Aleix Coch (Hamstring Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
Espanyol can fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they line up against CE Sabadell, who will be up against it to break down their defence.
Our selection here is for a fairly comfortable 2-0 winning margin for Espanyol at the end of the match.
