Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Unlike last season, Espanyol and Mallorca take on each other in Segunda Division this time out. RCDE Stadium will host Sunday’s showdown, which pits together the two teams who are eyeing promotion to La Liga. Los Periquitos made a flying start to the season, with the team rolling over Albacete at home ground. The Catalans aim to retain top position in the standings, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Mallorca.
A man to watch in the home team will be China international Lei Wu, who opened his goal-scoring account in the season opener. Los Bermellones, on the other hand, kicked off the new season with a severely-weakened squad, and it is no surprise they are seen as underdogs in Sunday’s clash. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Espanyol have turned their RCDE Stadium into a real fortress.
