Espanyol vs Atlético Madrid match preview
A lifelines for Espanyol, so can they now climb out of the relegation zone?
On Sunday, Luis García’s team claimed a potentially priceless victory, beating Rayo Vallecano 2-1 at Vallecas, with Sergi Darder and Nico Melamed the scorers.
Before this, Blanquiazules’ form had been horrendous, accumulating just four points from the last 33 available.
So, Espanyol do remain 19th, but are now just one point below both Getafe and Valladolid.
After this, the Catalan club’s last two games are Valencia (A) and Almería (H), knowing any positive result here would be a major boost going into those two decisive fixtures.
Atlético Madrid meanwhile demolished Osasuna 3-0 on Sunday, with Yannick Carrasco, Ángel Correa and forgotten man Saúl Ñíguez all on target at Cívitas Metropolitano.
That made it eight consecutive home victories for Diego Simeone’s side, who’ve returned to second place, determined to finish above Real Madrid.
Los Colchoneros’ last two matches are against Real Sociedad and Villarreal, making this one by far the most winnable.
Although, the reverse fixture did actually finish 1-1, so can Espanyol spring a surprise at RCDE Stadium?
