THE PREDICTION

Both of these teams are odds to be relegated but this is their last chance to kick-start a run of form that would give them an outside chance of a miraculous survival attempt. Nothing short of a win will suffice for either side that should lead to an open match with goals at both ends. Espanyol have to be favoured to take the points however as they simply have the greater firepower but the goals markets are more tempting in this one.
