A mid-table match-up in Catalonia between two teams with little to play for.

In fairness, Espanyol will settle for mid-table mediocrity this season, given that they were Segunda División champions a year ago.

However, Vicente Moreno will be less pleased with his team’s form.

Blanquiazules have taken just one point from their last five, most recently losing 2-1 at Mendizorrotza against then bottom of the table Alavés on Wednesday.

In their final home match of the season, can they end this barren run?

Valencia meanwhile were hoping to get back into Europe this season, but will miss out on this objective.

Last month, los Che were beaten on penalties in the Copa del Rey Final by Real Betis; Yunus Musah the only man to miss from 12 yards.

Los Murciélagos’ La Liga form has suffered as a result with Tuesday’s 3-0 drubbing by Betis meaning they’re now winless in seven.

This has seen José Bordalás’ team drop down to tenth and his own future is uncertain.

Will there be a winner at RCDE Stadium?

Raúl de Tomás scored his 16th goal of the season on Wednesday night so will continue to lead the line.

However, Yangel Herrera won’t be available after being sent off against Alavés.

Tonny Vilhena is the leading candidate to come in for him in midfield.

Giorgi Mamardashvili has been excellent in goal this season, including on Tuesday, despite conceding three times in that match.

With José Luis Gayà injured, 19 year old Jesús Vázquez will continue at left-back.

In the middle of defence, Hugo Guillamón could return after serving his one-match ban during the midweek round of games.

Gonçalo Guedes and Maxi Gómez are likely to return to the forward line after Bryan Gil, Hugo Duro and Carlos Soler led the attack on Tuesday.
