After winning three games in a row, Espanyol have lost their last two games in La Liga. They will be looking to bounce back to winning when they host Osasuna at the El Prat de Cornella in the 24th round of the Spanish top flight.
Espanyol to Bounce Back
The hosts have been in a decent form in the past few weeks in the Spanish top division. Espanyol have collected a total of 9 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in La Liga. Their last league match was against Real Madrid away from home where they lost 2-0.
Espanyol are currently sitting in the 10th place in the league table. They have 32 points from 8 wins, 8 draws and 7 losses. The team scored 30 goals and conceded 31 since the start of the season.
Marc Navarro is hoping to be back fit in time to start at right-back, but Javi Lopez will deputise if the youngster isn’t available. David Lopez could step into the centre of midfield as Pape Diop is suspended, with Pablo Piatti deployed on the left wing.
The Visitors Are in Trouble
The visitors have been on the contrary of the hosts. Osasuna have collected a total of 1 point from a possible 15 in their last five league games in La Liga. Their last league match was against Celta Vigo away from home where they lost 3-0.
Osasuna are currently sitting in the 20th place in the league table. They have 10 points from 1 wins, 7 draws and 15 losses. They have scored 24 goals and conceded 15 since the start of the season.
Raoul Loe and Roberto Torres could come into midfield, should the home side want to go with three central defenders. Carlos Clerc should be preferred to Fuentes out at left-back, with Oier playing either as a right-back or the right-sided centre-back for the visitors.
Head To Head
Espanyol have won 2 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2016 when the final score was 2-1 to Espanyol away from home.
