They have been a bit inconsistent in the La Liga lately, but come with an excellent home record. Betis managed to get a goal-less draw at the Metropolitano last time, but that helps Madrid to stay unbeaten at home this season. The previous 7 were wins and now they have kept 8 home clean sheets on the bounce.

It is a different story for Espanyol as they just crossed the danger line of relegation with a draw with Las Palmas last week. They were all over the places in the second half of the season, but the team look steady since the sacking of Quique Sanchez Flores from the head-coach post. The team is unbeaten under the new manager David Gallego whose first game was a 2-0 away win at the newly promoted Girona.

Atletico Madrid vs Espanyol: Head-to-head

Espanyol won 1-0 when the teams met in December 2017. Madrid were unbeaten in the previous 7 with 5 wins and 2 draws.

Atletico Madrid are unbeaten at home in the last 7 matches against Espanyol with 6 wins and 1 draw. The visitors failed to score in 6 of those.

Only 1 of their last 11 meetings in all competitions saw over 2.5 goals. The same can be said about instances of both teams scoring.

Atletico Madrid vs Espanyol: Prediction

Spirits are high at the Wanda Metropolitano following the qualification to the Europa League finals. But, their La Liga campaign is not over yet as they want to make the second spot theirs. So, expect them to go with a full-strength squad against Espanyol seeking three points.
