Our match prediction:
Espanyol will be looking to five fans some cheer when they welcome Eibar at their RCDE Stadium on the last day of the season. The Catalan outfit sit in 15th place in the La Liga standings ahead of the visit of Eibar and they will be looking to bounce back from a heavy 5-0 loss to Barcelona in the local derby when they square off against los Armeros on Sunday afternoon. Los Periquitos are a real force to be reckoned with at home and given that they were hammered by Luis Enrique’s troops in their last league match, we are positive coach Constantin Galca is going to field the best possible side against Eibar. Espanyol are desperate to finish the season on a high and we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s football game. You should bear in mind that Eibar are on a nine-game winless run on the road, speaking of league matches.
Highlighted Team (Espanyol):
Espanyol are a Catalan club that plays in Spanish La Liga. Espanyol were founded in 1900 and their original name was Sociedad Espanola de Football. In 1901 the Catalan club changed its name to Club Espanol de Futbol. Los Periquitos used to play in bright yellow shirts in the past, but current colour of the team’s home kit is blue and white. Espanyol’s fiercest rivals are Barcelona and the two teams face each other in the Catalan derby (Derbi barceloni). Espanyol have always been in Barca’s shadow, but it has to be noted that los Periquitos have won four Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup trophies). The likes of Raul Tamudo, Jose Maria, Antonio Argiles and Mauricio Pochettino are players with most appearances for the Catalan outfit. Espanyol play their home games at Estadio Cornella-El Prat and the capacity of the stadium is 40,500. Los Periquitos have never participated in the Champions League.
