“Soccer" RCD Espanyol

Reial Club Deportiu Espanyol was established in 1800 and is owned by the Rastar Group. This club has been known for its mediocrity in the top flight but in a surprise, they finished in 7th place during the previous La Liga season.

Espanyol has won the Copa del Rey a total of four times and they finished as runners-up in five other instances. The Perequitos have not won the La Liga but were Segunda Division champions in 1994. When it comes to European competition, Espanyol was twice runners-up of the UEFA Cup.

RCD Espanyol rank 19th in the league in Goal Difference at -7 goals. They have scored a total of four goals this season and are 16th in scoring. Espanyol has allowed 12 goals on the season, putting them in a tie for 18th in the La Liga. The club is also ranked 17th in the league in assists with two on the year.

Forward Facundo Ferreyra, midfielder Sergi Dader and Esteban Granero own RCD Espanyol’s three goals this season. Chinese midfielder Wu Lei and Matias Vargas own the team’s two assists this year  while goalkeeper Diego Lopez has given up 12 goals with 16 saves in seven appearances this year.

“Soccer" Who Wins?

RCD Mallorca is ranked 19th in the La Liga with a record of 1-1-5 SU in six matches played. After winning on opening week, they have not won a match in their last six assignments. Mallorca is coming off consecutive loses to Atletico Madrid and Alaves, failing to score a goal in either match.

RCD Espanyol is 1-2-4 SU so far this season. Espanyol is one spot higher than Mallorca in the team standings at #18. They have not won in their last three outings with two losses during that period. Espanyol is fresh from a 0-2 defeat at the hands of Real Valladolid in round seven.

Head to head, Mallorca has won five out of their last 10 meetings while Espanyol has won three matches. These teams played to a draw in two other matches played. Espanyol has not lost in their last three meetings with two wins although their last encounter was way back in 2013.

These are two struggling sides in the La Liga and are near the bottom of the table and candidates for relegation. Both have only one win so far this term and I won’t be surprised if the count stays the same after this match. Mallorca is playing at their home field but have not scored a goal in their last two matches. It’s going to be a close match and I will side with the tie here. Prediction: Draw
