Las Palmas vs Espanyol Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Las Palmas became the latest team to fall at the hands of Deportivo Alaves after losing 2-0 at the Mendizorrotza. Ibai Gomez scored the first goal of the game after 23 minutes to extend his recent scoring streak, while Munir scored just after half-time to make the game safe for Alaves. Espanyol suffered a shock 1-0 loss against Girona at the RCDE Stadium. Timor came up with a goal just before half-time and it proved too much for Espanyol even with home advantage. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The importance of Loic Remy in the Las Palmas team cannot be underestimated, as the Frenchman has the touch of magic to create goals out of nothing. This fixture has been dominated by the home teams in recent seasons. Espanyol have failed to win both their recent trips to the Gran Canaria. Las Palmas have had two wins at home, but they may struggle without the presence of Loic Remy. Espanyol have drawn two of the last five away games. I see value in backing a draw.

Since Las Palmas are missing some key players and Espanyol have failed to score in three out of the last five away matches, this game has the potential to be a low scoring game. I would bet upon this game to produce under 2.5 goals.

Draw – 23/10

Las Palmas Preview

Las Palmas were unable to build on the home win over Real Betis as the team has slipped further behind the safety net. Las Palmas need to make up five points just to catch up with Deportivo La Coruna in the 17th place. However, a vastly inferior goal difference means that Las Palmas have to rely only on points in order to get them out of relegation trouble. Recent defensive form has been slightly better for Las Palmas, who have already gone through two managers for the campaign. Paquito    is in charge of the club on an interim basis, but he may be handicapped without Loic Remy for this game. The Frenchman has scored four goals this season and is the club’s top scorer.

Las Palmas Team News

Pedro Bigas (leg), Alen Halilovic (ankle), and Victor Vitolo (hamstring) are unavailable due to injuries, while Tana and Loic Remy are doubtful with muscle injuries.

Espanyol Preview

Espanyol depend heavily on home form in order to get results that push them away from the drop zone and into the top-10. The problems begin for Espanyol when even home form starts deserting the team, as has been the case over the last few weeks. A run of just one win and four defeats in the last five league matches has left Espanyol just four points away from the drop zone. The club are clearly in a relegation battle until they get a couple of positive results that push them away from the same. Gerard Moreno is the top scorer at Espanyol with five goals for the campaign.

Espanyol Team News

Adrian Lopez (meniscus) and Jairo Morilla (discomfort) are certainly ruled out of the game, while David Lopez is doubtful with a broken nose.
