Can Espanyol start to find some form?
A fortnight ago, Blanquiazules were beaten 2-1 at Anoeta by Real Sociedad, thanks partially to a calamitous error by goalkeeper Álvaro Fernández.
So, Diego Martinez’s side have still only won once under him, losing four of six matches.
This leaves the Catalan club just one place above the relegation zone; to say they’re expecting better is an understatement.
Valencia, who also changed manager in the summer, have been consistently inconsistent under Gennaro Gattuso.
Los Che have won three and lost three, with all of their victories coming at Mestalla.
Last time out, Samu Castillejo, Marcos André and André Almeida were on target in a 3-0 drubbing of Celta de Vigo.
However, on the road, los Murciélagos are yet to get off the mark, beaten in both Bilbao and Vallecas by Rayo.
So, who will claim a much-needed victory at RCDE Stadium?
