Espanyol News and Form

Espanyol recorded a 1-0 home win over Leganes in their first league game of the new year. That was a big fillip for them as they were on a six-match losing streak before that. Espanyol have hit the back of the net in only two of their last five league outings. Overall this season on their travels in the top flight, they have posted a W1 D3 L5 record. They are unbeaten on the road against sides currently in the bottom half of the table (W1 D3).

They are on a three-match losing streak on the road and are winless in four. Less than half of their road games have gone over 2.5 goals so this one is probably going to end up being tight and low-scoring. Espanyol have actually been leading at halftime in six of their away games (D2 L1) which is a really good return from them. They have scored all but one of their away goals this season in the first half of matches. However, 11 of the 13 away goals that they have shipped on the road have been in the second period of matches. They are apparently, a team of two halves. Only bottom side Huesca have earned fewer away points than Espanol have,
