Betting prediction:

This game puts two teams away in points and also in quality. Espanyol, even going through a mini-score result, must assume the expenses of the game and enjoy the best goalscoring opportunities, since they present a team with individual values, capable of deciding the game from one moment to the next. On the other hand, the men of the house must adopt a defensive strategy, in order to keep their goal immaculate and try through quick attacks to surprise Espanyol’s defensive organization. Having said that and taking into account these factors, betting in favor of visitors is an option with value in the long run.
