Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Espanyol desperately needed a win against Villarreal and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their nine-match winless run in La Liga. The triumph gave los Periquitos a confidence boost, but the rock-bottom side need to keep on improving their game if they are to secure the La Liga survival. The Catalan outfit aim to build on the win over Villarreal, but the game against Athletic Club will be anything but a walk in the park for the relegation strugglers.
The Lions, on the other hand, are eyeing their first league win since December 1, 2019. Seeing that Athletic Club have record only one win on the road in the 2019/2020 season, away win should not be considered. The hosts want this win more than the visitors; therefore, we are tempted to put our money on Abelardo’s troops.
