Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
RCDE Stadium will host Saturday’s football match between Espanyol and Atletico Madrid, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the second half of the season. Los Periquitos are determined to secure yet another La Liga survival, while los Rojiblancos are eyeing a place in the Champions League. Espanyol failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Real Valladolid, and it has to be noted that the Catalan outfit will be without suspended defender David Lopez against Atletico Madrid.
Diego Simeone’s troops have been in a fine form of late. Following a hard-fought 1-0 win over Liverpool in the Champions League, the capital club came from behind to beat Villarreal in their last league match. Considering that the visitors are high on spirits ahead of the trip to Barcelona, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the away team.
