Our football match prediction:
Following back-to-back wins over the likes of Atletico Madrid and Malaga, Espanyol shared the spoils with Athletic Club in their last league match. The Catalan side did well to escape the danger zone in the La Liga standings and they are now on a quest to climb to top ten in the table. Espanyola are a real force to be reckoned with at home and they should take advantage of the fact that Sevilla have been struggling to find their best form of late. Los Sevillanos suffered a 1-0 loss to Deportivo Alaves at the weekend, with the team extending their losing run on the road to three matches. New coach Vincenzo Montella has yet to adapt to the new surroundings and, taking everything into account, we predict that the Catalan club are going to emerge triumphant in Saturday’s football match. In their last meeting in Barcelona Espanyol defeated Sevilla and the history is likely to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Hernan Perez):
Hernan Perez is a 27-year-old Paraguayan winger who plays for Spanish club RCD Espanyol in Spanish La Liga. Perez was a late bloomer having built up his career for two different youth clubs before finding his feet with Tacuary. He made his top division debut in 2007 with them and was subsequently signed by fellow league side Club Libertad. But a serious right knee injury limited his game time at Libertad where he rarely appeared for the capital club. Perez’s redemption came at Spanish club Villarreal in 2009 where he quickly established himself in the main squad. Last year, he joined Espanyol and started showing glimpses of his skills. Perez was one of the best players for Paraguayan under-20 team at the 2009 South American Championship helping them finish in second place. His full senior debut came in the next year when he was selected to the 2011 Copa America. So far, Perez has won 26 caps.
