Our football match prediction:
RCDE Stadium will host Friday’s football game between Espanyol and Real Sociedad. Los Periquitos are on a three-game winning run in La Liga and they did well to beat Malaga at Estadio La Rosaleda at the weekend. The Catalan club aim to climb to the Europa League berth, but the game against Real Sociedad will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Espanyol defeated the likes of Granada and Sevilla in previous two home fixtures in La Liga and that is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of the Basque outfit. Eusebio Sacristan’s troops came from behind to beat Osasuna at their Estadio Municipal de Anoeta at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the opening match of day 22. Real Sociedad are not regarded as good travelers and we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Friday’s clash.
