  • Competition: La Liga
  • Date: 24th May 2023
  • Kickoff: 21:00 UK / 22:00 CEST
  • Venue: Cornellà-El Prat

An exciting match awaits us on Wednesday evening as two teams with completely different ambitions for the rest of the Spanish Primera División season face off. Espanyol are fighting against relegation, while the visitors want to finish the season second ahead of Real Madrid.

The hosts have won only two of their last twelve games in La Liga. This leaves them second from bottom, but they still have a chance of staying in this division if they pick up at least one win from their remaining three games. To begin what would be a busy last two weeks of the season, they must first beat Atlético Madrid on Wednesday. Having, however, won just one of their last five home games it would be a big ask to expect them to take all three points.

Atlético Madrid have not only won four of their last five La Liga games, but have also scored at least three goals in each of them. However, away fans should reflect before this match that Cornellà-El Prat has not been a good place for them in recent years. Diego Simeone’s men have only won one of their last five away games at Espanyol, but given their current form, we still trust them to take at least a point from this game.

Espanyol vs Atlético Madrid betting tips: Team2 to win or draw

As we have come to expect from the visitors in recent months, they have struggled to score goals in away games and we expect that to be the case in this match against Espanyol, who will be putting their lives on the line to stay in the top flight.

Espanyol team news

Head coach Luis García is not expected to make any major changes to his Espanyol side that featured from the start in last weekend's 2-1 win over Rayo Vallecano.

Thus, Nico Melamed will retain his role as number 10 after scoring the winning goal in the aforementioned game, while Joselu will lead the line.

Keidi Bare is still suffering from an ankle injury and is likely to miss out, but otherwise the hosts have no other injury worries.

Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid team news

Atlético Madrid will once again have to do without at least five first-team players due to injury. Among them are players like Stefan Savic, Memphis Depay, Reinildo, Marcos Llorente and Jan Oblak.

Given the result and the number of goals against Osasuna last weekend, head coach Diego Simeone will surely resist the temptation to reshuffle his line-up.
