THE PREDICTION

This is a crunch match in Espanyol’s fight against relegation and they face a Betis side that fired their manager after their defeat last time out. They will be hoping there is no reaction following that news as they have to bounce back from their own loss to Levante which leaves them stuck at the foot of the Primera table. They had been showing some signs of fight prior to that loss and they will know a victory here puts them back in with a fighting chance. Against the hosts who have won just one of their last ten league matches, expect Espanyol to come away with at least a point here.
