Match Preview

  • Prior to the hiatus, Espanyol compiled a five-game unbeaten run in La Liga (LL) at home (W1, D4), despite scoring first in just three of those five encounters. A HT/FT double to either side is unlikely, as the half-time result has not been replicated at the final whistle in any of Espanyol’s five home competitive games in 2020.
  • Espanyol have enjoyed just one LL victory from seven starts as a home favourite this season (D2, L4), conceding at least two goals in five of those seven fixtures whilst succumbing to a margin of two or more goals in three of the four defeats. Even on the five rare occasions in which they opened the scoring at home, a second half home goal difference of -10 has contributed to their W1, D2, L2 record under such parameters.
  • Alavés’ last 14 LL contests have seen eight 0-0 half-time results and just two sides lead at the end of both halves, with all five draws in that period finishing with 1-1 results. A seven-game spell without a LL clean sheet would be of some concern, whilst the visitors have won just one second half in their last six LL road trips.
  • They’re also pursuing the end of a six-game competitive winless H2H run at Espanyol (D2, L4), in which Alavés failed to score a single first-half goal. Conceding the first goal of the game will likely spell trouble again, as the visitors have lost eight of nine LL away games (D1) when doing so.
  • Players to watch: Adrián Embarba recorded Espanyol’s first goal on consecutive occasions in February, while Lucas Pérez has done so in three of his last five LL appearances for Alaves.
  • Stat attack: Looking at LL as a whole, eight of the last 11 games before the hiatus saw both teams score.
  • Eight of Espanyol’s last 11 LL games prior to the postponement also saw both teams score.
  • Espanyol have taken the fewest corner kicks of the match in their last five LL contests.
  • Four of Alavés’ last five LL fixtures have produced five or more yellow cards (avg 6.00).
