Espanyol ride out to their last fixture of the La Liga Segunda division this season to face Alcorcon who sit in the opposite half of the table at Estadio Municipal de Santo Domingo in what is expected to be an exciting match this Sunday with kickoff at 22:00.
Alcorcon are currently in a must win-situation since they are 17th– placed with 45 points in the league table only a point clear of the relegation zone. Therefore, Alcorcon will have to give everything in this one in order to salvage all the three points and secure their survival.
Alcorcon head into their last match of the season off the back of a 1-0 defeat to Girona at way and have only picked two wins in their last five matches scoring and conceding three goals in that run. However, the hosts have won a total of 12 games this season with eight of them coming at home.
Meanwhile, Espanyol will be playing top-flight football next season having already booked their place through the two automatic promotion spots. They head into match off the back of a 1-1 draw to Tenerife and at the spot with 82 points in the league standings. Only a point above Mallorca will be challenging for the crown.
Espanyol look sharp and in a good form, also they haven’t lost any of their past nine away matches but the buggies are willing to put their money on the relegation-threatened hosts.
