Match preview

It’s 14th vs 15th as two sides, looking to stay clear of the relegation zone, go head-to-head in Cornellà de Llobregat.

Of the two, Espanyol are one place and two points better off, despite the fact they’re actually winless in 2022.

So, since dramatically beating Valencia on New Years’ Eve, Vicente Moreno’s side have not won any of their seven games, accumulating a measly three points.

This has seen the Catalan club drop down to 14th and, while they’re not in any relegation danger yet, if this slide continues they might be.

Getafe meantime saw Jorge Cuenca sent off after just half an hour last weekend, but managed to draw 2-2 with Alavés.

Enes Ünal’s brace helping them salvage a point at Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.

Quique Sánchez Flores’ side have only lost three of their last 16 games so, despite failing to win until facing Espanyol on Halloween, are six above the drop zone.

Will there be a winner at RCDE Stadium?

Espanyol team news

Vicente Moreno isn’t likely to make wholesale changes to his XI, despite their continued winless run.

Tonny Vilhena has been a regular since arriving from Krasnodar but Wǔ Lěi, Adrián Embarba or Óscar Melendo could come in out-wide.

For goals though, it’s all about Raúl de Tomás who’s got 13 this season but hasn’t scored in his last two, having netted in five in-a-row before this.

First and foremost, Jorge Cuenca’s red card last weekend means he is suspended.

Getafe’s main man right now is Enes Ünal’s who’s brace against Alavés takes his tally to 13 this season, despite the fact his first came on 28 October.

Only Karim Benzema has scored more goals than the Turkish international in La Liga this season.

Aside from him, Getafe’s stars continue to be Nemanja Maksimović and Mauro Arambarri who are the midfield generals of this side.
