Hoping to claim back-to-back La Liga victories on their return from the international break, Valencia will make the trip to Espanyol on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has been a worrying start to the 2022/23 campaign, Espanyol find themselves in the midst of a relegation scrap. In their opening six La Liga matchups so far this season, they have recorded just a single win, one draw and four defeats, scoring seven and conceding 12 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of four from a possible 18, they mark their return to action sat down in 17th and with just their goal difference keeping them outside of the drop zone. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 2-1 loss away at Real Sociedad, Espanyol have now lost four of their previous five La Liga matchups. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, Sunday’s hosts have seen all bar one of their opening six domestic contests finish with over 1.5 goals.
As for the visitors, managing to make an immediate return to last time out before heading into the break, Valencia will be looking to keep up that momentum here. In their opening six La Liga matchups, they have recorded three wins against three defeats, scoring 10 and conceding five in return. Managing to muster a points tally of nine from a possible 18, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat ninth in the standings and just two points adrift of breaking into the European places. As for their recent run of results, last seen prior to the international break picking up a 3-0 romp at home against Celta Vigo, Valencia had won two of their last three La Liga matchups. It should also be highlighted, with Sunday’s guests seeing their previous three top-flight contests produce 12 strikes, we’re backing what could be another enjoyable affair.
