Espanyol started 2021 with a 1-0 away defeat by a struggling Las Palmas side on Sunday, a result snapping a six-match winning streak (across all competitions).

Vicente Moreno's men travel to the Municipal El Plantio next, seeking a statement win vs Burgos - who play their football in Spain's Segunda B - otherwise known as the country's third-tier.

On paper, this looks a real mismatch. Can Burgos spring a surprise or will Espanyol's rotated side prove too much for them to handle? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Burgos vs Espanyol Betting Tips

Roberto Gonzalez's left-footed strike flew into the top corner with aplomb, as Espanyol players were duly punished for ball-watching alongside a half-hearted attempt to clear their lines.

On-loan from Real Betis, the talented winger fired goalwards with precision and venom in equal measure - an effort goalkeeper Diego Lopez couldn't save, despite the 39-year-old's best efforts.

Lopez's innocuous forward pass into central defender Lluís Lopez got the academy graduate sent off just moments after the second-half began. The ball was too heavy and with an alert Gonzalez lurking dangerously nearby to create something out of nothing, he panicked.

He fouled the youngster while handling the ball to control it in the same sequence. After a lengthy VAR check, he was dismissed. Neither he nor Diego Lopez is expected to feature in midweek.

Over Olazabal is Espanyol's designated cup 'keeper, while Ricard Pujol partnered Fernando Calero during their 1-0 (AET) win away at UE Llagostera in mid-December.

They'll need to be sharper in attack than they were on December 16, as Javi Puado's extra-time winner sealed a surprisingly narrow win that night. Burgos were 2-0 winners against FC Andorra in R1, courtesy of goals from Javier Gomez and substituted Saúl Berjon in stoppage-time.

Burgos vs Espanyol Correct Score Predictions

Wednesday's cup clash pits the pair together for the first time. It's a typical David vs Goliath matchup here, that could suit the hosts as they ultimately have nothing to lose.

They're unbeaten in five, kept three successive clean sheets and tend to have low-scoring games. However, Espanyol is a far cry from third-tier opposition, so I'm predicting over 2.5 goals here.
