Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
After shocking Athletic Club at RCDE Stadium, Espanyol will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they face Sevilla in the La Liga round 5. Los Periquitos did well to put an end to their three-game winless run at the weekend, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. Espanyol are high on spirits ahead of Saturday’s clash, and they are surely capable of matching the out-of-sorts Sevillanos.
Julen Lopetegui is under big pressure following a heavy 4-0 loss to Man City, and seeing that the Andalusians collected only one point in total from the first four games of the season, we are tempted to put our money on the Catalan outfit. Both Marcao and Corona are sidelined with injuries for the away side, while Calero, Bare, and Pedrosa remain in Espanyol’s recovery room.

Diego Lopez is a Spanish goalkeeper who plays for Milan in the Serie A. Lopez was born in Paradela on 3 November, 1981 and he played for Lugo during his youth career. He made two appearances for Lugo at senior level as well, but in 2000 he joined Real Madrid.

After spending five seasons at Villarreal (2007-2012) the Spanish goalkeeper played for Sevilla in the 2012/2013 La Liga campaign, but he made no more than eight league appearances for los Sevillanos.
