Las Palmas and Espanyol meet in need of points

It may be too early to say this is a battle for survival but come then end of the season this game could be very important in terms of who stays up and who goes down.

Las Palmas come into this game on the back of defeat to Alaves, while Espanyol also head into the game on the back of defeat against Girona on Monday night.

If previous meetings between these two are anything to go by then Las Palmas have the upper hand when they play at the Estadio Gran Canaria with the home side winning 12 of the last 17 games there.

However if you’re expecting to see goals galore this weekend then this match isn’t the one as both teams have scored the fewest out of any side in La Liga this season.

Las Palmas still have a injury concerns including Alen Halilovic, Tana, Momo, Pedro Bigas and Vitolo. The away side have a few injury problems themselves including Sergio Garcia, Javi Lopez and Adrian Lopez.

Espanyol boss Quique Sanchez Flores comes into the game with an unbeaten record against Las Palmas winning once and drawing once both as Espanyol’s boss.

Both sides will be hoping that their respective top goalscorer will find the net on Sunday, with Espanyol sriker Gerard Moreno the top scorer in both sides with five goals while Las Palmas top scorer is Loic Remy who has four goals with three of them coming as the substitute.

With defeat on Sunday Espanyol will have their lowest points at this stage of the season since the 2012/13 season where they had 11 points.
