RCD Espanyol vs Sevilla FC Total Goals 2.5 (Over/Under)
Espanyol was shockingly demoted from Spain’s top division in 2019–20. Still, they made it back at the first attempt by winning the Segunda Division, and the Catalan team placed 14th in La Liga the previous season. However, the White and Blues were just four points above the bottom half of the table in 2021–22, and there is little doubt that the fans will expect an improvement this season.
Espanyol began the La Liga season with a 2-2 draw at Celta, now led by former Osasuna and Granada current coach Diego Martinez. However, Espanyol could not build on the valuable away point, as they recently lost 2-0 to Rayo Vallecano at home.
With Athletic Bilbao, Sevilla, Real Sociedad, and Valencia in their next four games, Espanyol has a challenging stretch of games ahead of them. It will be interesting to see where they stand at the table starting the September international break.
The four-time Copa del Rey champions defeated Real Madrid 2-1 in a similar game last season, but when they visited Bernabeu in April, they were routed 4-0. Sevilla, on the other hand, had a dismal start to the season, earning only one point from their first two games, which dropped them to the bottom of the standings in 12th place.
On August 12, Lopetegui’s team lost 2-1 to Osasuna in their opening match before getting retained to just a 1-1 draw by Real Valladolid in their subsequent match. Sevilla was down 1-0 until the 86th minute of the game when Karim Rekik secured a late point.
Los Nervionenses finished fourth in La Liga last season, just three points behind second-place Barcelona. However, early signs suggest they may struggle to have a similar season because Jules Kunde and Diego Carlos, two key players, have left the club.
However, the squad has been strengthened by the arrival of Tanguy Nianzou, Marcao, Isco, and Alex Telles. A victory on Saturday will undoubtedly improve their confidence before the match with Barcelona at the beginning of September.
Sevilla is attempting to strengthen its team before the transfer window closes. It wouldn’t be unexpected to see additional players join the club before the deadline, given that the team is planning to compete in the Champions League in 2022–2023.
RCD Espanyol vs Sevilla FC Team News
- RCD Espanyol
Three players for Espanyol are questionable for this encounter due to their health, including Pol Lozano, Raul de Tomas, and Adria Pedrosa.
Sergi Gomez, dismissed from his team’s previous match against Rayo at home after receiving a red card, will also undoubtedly miss this match for the Catalan team.
Gomez’s absence will allow Fernando Calero to move into the back four, but other than that, things should remain the same. Joselu and Nico Melamed will likely again team up with Ruben Sanchez in the final third.
- Sevilla FC
Suso is striving to make a comeback for Sevilla after a health concern, but Jesus Corona is still out injured for the visitors. Since Marcos Acuna will be unavailable for Lopetegui’s team due to his recent red card against Real Valladolid, Telles should be allowed to start at left-back.
Again, Erik Lamela will play off the left, with Rafa Mir expected to lead the line. However, Lucas Ocampos is expected to enter the starting lineup, so there may be a change in the final third.
Last time out, Nianzou and Rekik acted as the two central defenders, which is expected to continue here. However, Jesus Navas could enter the lineup at right-back.
