Espanyol, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 4-0 La Liga 2 success over UD Las Palmas.

In that game, Espanyol managed 50% possession and 21 shots on goal with 7 on target. For Espanyol, the goals were scored by Javi Puado (9', 14', 23') and Adri Embarba (49'). UD Las Palmas got 6 shots on goal with 1 on target.

Fixtures involving Espanyol have tended to be entertaining encounters of late with plenty of scoring anticipated. Over their past six games, the sum total of 20 goals have been recorded for both teams combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 17 of them coming from Periquitos. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be sustained into this next game, however.

Analysis of their past results shows that Espanyol:

  • have not lost a league tie with Málaga in their previous 13 games. A very long unbeaten run against them.
  • are unbeaten in their previous 6 league matches at home.

After tasting defeat last time out to Fuenlabrada in La Liga 2 action, Málaga and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.

In that game, Málaga managed 56% possession and 8 shots on goal with 0 of them on target. For their opponents, Fuenlabrada had 16 shots on goal with 6 on target. Randy Nteka (11') was the scorer for Fuenlabrada.

In 5 of the past 6 clashes featuring Málaga, a comparatively low number of goals have gone in between them and their opposition. The overall average goals scored per game in that spell comes out as a meagre 1.83, with the number of goals averaged by Los Boquerones equalling 0.83.

Looking at their past form shows that Málaga:

  • haven't won against Espanyol in games played away from home for the previous 6 league games. They really have not been travelling well at all.
  • are undefeated in their last 4 away league matches.

🗞️ Team News: Espanyol

Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the Espanyol boss Vicente Moreno to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust group. Miguelón (Knee Injury) won’t play.

ℹ️ Team News: Málaga

Thanks to a largely full-strength group, there’s only the one fitness problem for the Málaga gaffer Sergio Pellicer to be concerned about. Iván Calero (Ruptured knee ligament) won’t be in action. Iván Calero is ineligible for this match because of suspension.

💡 Prediction

Espanyol can get the win and a possible clean sheet when they meet Málaga, who might well find it difficult to score themselves.
