The league has just kicked off but Espanyol is already showing signs of putting up a fight as they contend for the La Liga title. This follows their all draw away against Celta Vigo.

After finishing in the 11th place last season, Espanyol is definitely aiming at doing everything that is humanly possible and does better this season.

In this home match, Rubi’s men are expected to do exponentially great and clinch a win. However, they are facing a much stronger side in this match and they may have to settle for nothing less than a draw.

In terms of the team composition, there are no signs of changes from last week squad that saw Espanyol settle for a draw against Celta Vigo.

Valencia will come into this away matchup in high spirits after a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid in their first match of this season. They will be on the road for this matchup that seemingly appears to be a tight fixture.

Even as they remain the most dominant in their last 5 meetings with Espanyol, they may want to be focused on this one. Espanyol looks more determined and may surprise them.
