Since their unceremonious relegation from La Liga over the summer months, Espanyol have started the new campaign in fine form – unbeaten with ten points from a possible 12.

They host Alcorcon next, who narrowly missed out on LaLiga 2's promotion play-offs last term, targeting another welcome result early in a division they don't want to get comfortable with.

Can they make it four wins from five, or will Saturday's visitors prevail against a side they possess a positive H2H record against? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Espanyol vs Alcorcon Betting Tips

Vicente Moreno's side left it late, but ultimately emerged victorious courtesy of Nicolas Melamed's 84th-minute winner against CE Sabadell last week. The 19-year-old midfielder, one of the club's academy graduates, will be hoping his heroics sees him earn a first start this weekend after some mixed La Liga cameos post-lockdown.

It'll be interesting to see if Moreno does make any changes to his starting eleven, which certainly has some top-flight quality sprinkled across it.

Diego Lopez, 39 next month, is still going strong between the posts. Despite joining for £7.2m last summer, centre-back Fernando Calero made just 12 league starts in 2019-20, but has begun the new term well. Alcorcon have a task on their hands, having only scored twice in their opening four games – both against Tenerife in mid-September.

They can welcome back midfielder Richard Boateng after a one-game suspension, while winger Hugo Fraile caught the eye against Real Zaragoza last week. Although they recorded seven shots with none on target, the 33-year-old created a game-high four key passes and could be decisive as they look to unlock the Espanyol backline here.

Espanyol vs Alcorcon Correct Score Predictions

In four previous H2H meetings, Alcorcon lead (two wins, one draw and defeat), with each coming in the Copa del Rey between 2014-2016. Naturally plenty has changed since then, including Espanyol's top-flight status, something they want to restore next summer.

If they're to do that, they cannot afford to slip up and must maintain consistency all season – building early momentum now will help them long-term. I'm predicting a competitive but important Espanyol win.
