Espanyol vs Deportivo Alaves Match preview
Espanyol lost three of their last five fixtures across all major competitions, including the Europa League. They lost their previous match on the road against Osasuna with a 1-0 scoreline.
Even though their overall form is questionable, their attempts at home have been fruitful. They are undefeated at home in the last five clashes in the campaign.
Alaves will have concerns since they are playing away from home. They visit on the back of a three-game unbeaten run, following a 1-1 draw at home against Valencia in their last encounter.
The visitor has registered only two wins in their prior ten away games across all major contests. Besides, they are winless in the recent three outings in the league.
Despite having a decent away form in the league this season and a better overall run, Alaves will be at a backhand in the h2h history.
Since 2003, the teams have met six times at this venue and Espanyol lost none of it. With this, we can expect the traveling side to struggle in Barcelona.

Having a firm hold in their h2h clashes with CD Alaves, especially at home, will be a great boost for the bottom lying team.
Espanyol was successful in not losing to the visitors, even in the reverse fixture this season at the latter’s home. Alaves could not penetrate the opponent’s defense in that match which ended in a goalless draw. In the most recent h2h clash at RCDE Stadium in April 2019, Abelardo and team secured a 2-1 win.
Based on their h2h history, a draw no bet over Espanyol at 1.50 odds will probably be the best bet in the clash for the punters to yield safe returns.
The scoring averages of both the teams in the campaign are round to 1 goal per match. Hence, the tip for over 1.5 goals at 1.50 odds will be a suitable tip for the punters.
