Match: Spain La Liga / Espanyol Vs Atletico Madrid

Espanyol: Aiming for 7th spot (Recent Form: WWLWDW)
Espanyol occupy 9th place in La Liga with 49 points. The seventh position will be probably enough to take part in Europa League qualifications and ‘Los Pericos’ are currently 3 points short of that spot. Espanyol need to keep addings points, but it won’t be easy on Saturday as they’re hosting Atletico Madrid. “It is a very indestructible, powerful team and that is why it is important in Spain and in Europe. It is a team with many records. The important thing is that we impose our way of playing and that we spend most of the time in the areas where we want to be. Our connection with the fans is growing and has a very positive effect. It would be nice to have them with us,” said coach Quique Sanchez Flores. Oscar Duarte, Alvaro Vazquez and Hernan Perez are unavailable, Leo Baptistao is a doubt.
Probable line-ups: Diego Lopez; Javi Lopez, David Lopez, Diego Reyes, Aaron; Roca, Victor Sanchez, Jurado, Piatti; Caicedo, Moreno

Atletico Madrid: Busy calendar (Recent Form: DWWDWW)
A couple of days ago Atletico did well and advanced to semi-finals of UEFA Champions League, where they are going to face Real Madrid. But as for now, they need to switch focus to domestic competitions. “This is a very difficult week. Our intention is to battle for the 3rd place. We have complicated games nowadays and Espanyol have made a very good job since the start of the season. They are enthusiastic, aiming for Europe, and Espanyol is a tough rival,” said coach Diego Simeone. Augusto, Juanfran, Vrsaljko, Cerci are out.
Probable line-ups: Oblak; Lucas, Savic, Godin, Filipe; Gabi, Saul, Koke, Carrasco; Griezmann, Gameiro

All in all, I think that this may be a low-scoring encounter. Both sides are well-organized in defence and the first game between these two teams ended goalless in first round. In my opinion this might be a similar fixture.
