Will Espanyol bounce back?
Last weekend, Blanquiazules’ unbeaten streak came to an end, beaten 3-1 by Almería at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos.
Before this, Diego Martínez’s side had won back-to-back games for the first time this season, beating both Getafe and then Real Betis.
All of this leaves Espanyol 15th, just one point clear of danger.
Towards the other end of the table, Osasuna are firmly in the fight for Europe.
Los Rojillos start the weekend eighth, just below the European spots, despite being beaten 1-0 by Atlético Madrid last Sunday.
That was just a third defeat in ten matches for Jagoba Arrasate’s team, who also have a Copa del Rey semi-final clash with Athletic Club to look forward to.
This fixture at RCDE Stadium is tough to call, with Espanyol hoping to make home advantage count.
