Espanyol and Mallorca are set to face each other at RCDE Stadium, both hoping to secure their second consecutive victory in the Spanish top flight. Espanyol won 1-0 against Elche in their last match, while Mallorca defeated Villarreal 4-2. Espanyol has accumulated 24 points in the 22 games played, putting them in 13th place and just two points clear of the relegation zone. Mallorca has collected 31 points from 22 matches, placing them in eighth place and just three points behind sixth-placed Rayo Vallecano.
Espanyol has a relegation battle on their hands as only three points separate 12th-placed Sevilla and Cadiz in 18th. While Espanyol has only lost two of their last eight league matches, their home record is the second-worst in the league, having collected only 10 points from 11 matches. Mallorca’s away form is also a concern as they have lost their last four away games without scoring a goal.

Espanyol will have Leandro Cabrera back from suspension, but Fernando Calero, Cesar Montes, Joselu, Adria Pedrosa, and Keidi Bare remain injured.
