Sevilla vs Espanyol: prediction for the La Liga match
Team finished 4th in the previous season and got qualified for the Champions League, they played the first match in that tournament last week and failed to beat Salzburg (1:1) at home. After that Red-Whites had another draw, this time against Real Sociedad (0:0) in the domestic league, and on Wednesday they recorded a 3:1 victory over Valencia at home.
Julen Lopetegui's lads have three victories and two draws after five rounds, which brought them 11 points and a fourth spot in the standings. Team has a great defensive line, they conceded only two goals so far, less than any other team in the league.
Suso and Torres are injuried.
Espanyol finally starts to gain form. A Segunda champion needed some time to find it's game, so they started with two defeats and three draws. In space of last week Catalan club picked up more points than at the start.
After a draw against Betis (2:2) Budgerigars managed to record the first victory of the La Liga season, beating Alaves (1:0) on Tuesday.
Herrera, Puado, Olazabal, Calero and Vidal won't be able to play against Sevilla.

Hosts have a tight schedule, so they will probably try to record a victory with a little effort. We believe that the outcome of the match will be decided by one or two goals.
