Tailenders Espanyol begin their Spanish La Liga retention bid on Saturday as they meet 14th-running Alaves at the RCDE Stadium. Currently at the bottom of the 20-team field, before the league abruptly postponed the tournament due to the spread of the coronavirus disease, the Blanquiazules (4-8-15 win-draw-loss, 20 points) hope to secure enough points in the last 11 games to remain in the top-tier level next season. Meanwhile, Alaves (8-8-11, 32 points) attempt to move up the ladder with an impressive performance against Espanyol as they could only produce a draw over their last two games before the three-month virus stoppage.

Since winning their match against Mallorca on February 9, Espanyol have found themselves in a four-game winless spell. Two of those games were one-goal setbacks against Valladolid (1-2, February 23) and Osasuna (0-1, March 8). In their last encounter against Osasuna, the Abelardo Fernandez-mentored XI could not buy a break. They were penalized in the 49th minute after Victor Sanchez was whistled for a handball. It resulted in a Roberto Torres right-footed conversion in the 51st minute. Thirty-two minutes later, they were reduced to 10 men after Diego Lopez was sent off for his second yellow card following a handball infraction. He was previously shown the yellow card from a foul committed in the 60th minute. There were several opportunities for Espanyol to tie the game but Osasuna’s defense was too stout to overcome. Goal scoring opportunities were the issue for the Blanquiazules as they could only muster two shots on goal. They need to change this in the next 11 games to better their chances to avoid relegation. In the last 10 games, Espanyol are 4-5-1 against the spread with a 2-1-1 ATS Home mark. They are 5-2-3 in over/under but only have an O/U home record of 1-1-2.

Visitors Alaves, on the other hand, hope to extend their three-game unbeaten streak and move to the upper half of the table. The Asier Garitano-coached squad have drawn twice and won once during that span and seek to resume their mini-run against Espanyol. In their previous game against Valencia, El Glorioso needed a late goal from Edgar Mendez to secure a point. Despite having more shots over their foes (13-6), they were outclassed in possessions. They could only manage to hold on to the ball for 43% of the whole 90-minute encounter as Valencia kept the ball onto their ground for most of the game. Alaves will need to free up Lucas Perez and Joselu to gain tremendous scoring opportunities. The pair have combined for 20 goals and they hope to continue their goal-scoring spree over the last 11 games of the tournament to gain more wins and enough points for their bid to barge into the Top 10. Against the spread chances are favorable for Alaves as they are 5-3-2 overall, including a 3-2 away record. However, there might be an issue in El Glorioso’s over/under mark as they are 5-5 over the last 10 games, with a pedestrian O/U away mark of 2-3.

Espanyol vs Alaves: Espanyol will play with a -1 spread in the game while Alaves are given a +1 spread. The total for the match is 2. In terms of head-to-head, the Blanquiazules dominated the past 10 games with 4-4-2 (win-draw-loss) mark over Alaves. The predicted score for the match is 2-0.
