Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Espanyol will be aiming to build on back-to-back wins over Real Oviedo and Sabadell when they take on Alcorcon on Matchday 5. Los Periquitos are determined to secure a quick return to La Liga, and they could not have wished for a better start to the season. The Catalans have been impressive at the back at the start of the season, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Saturday’s football game.
Alcorcon, on the other hand, have been anything but impressive in front of goal at the start of the new Segunda Division campaign, with the team netting two goals in total to date. Considering that los Alfareros are not regarded as good travellers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Catalan side. Even though midfielder Richard Boateng returns from suspension for the visitors, home win should be considered.
