PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

The sixteenth match day of the Spanish Primera continues. Vigo passes the baton to Las Palmas where the local based team meets Espanyol at Gran Canaria Stadium. This will be a clash between the worst home side in La Liga and the worst away side. Who will be stronger in this controversial battle?

Las Palmas, who are still without a coach as Jorge Almiron's appointment was blocked this week by the Spanish Football Federation. The island side currently sits on the last place having earned just ten points.

They began this season with two consecutive losses. Then they have beaten Malaga on the road and Athletic Bilbao at home. The next period was the most unsuccessful in their record. The Islanders have lost eight fixtures in a row with a huge goal ratio 3:23. The hosts have interrupted this black streak just in the end of November by scoring drawing against Real Sociedad. On December they have won and lost one match, respectively.

Las Palmas have one of the poorest offensive line with 0,73 goals per game. They are the worst ones in terms of defense. They have conceded on an average 2,27 goals.

This season the Budgerigars had already two unbeaten streaks. The October one contained three matches and was interrupted by Deportivo Alaves before the international break. An overall team’s record includes four wins, four draws, seven losses with a 11:19 goal difference. Quique Sanchez Flores’ team has earned 16 points which correspond to the 16-th position in the table.

The White and Blues have seven consecutive games under 2,5. These poor stats are partly due to the defense oriented opponents. Espanyol has scored on an average 0,73 goals and conceded 1,27.

The hosts can rely on Pedro Bigas and Alen Halilovic who are injured. The appearance of Loic Remy and Victor Vitolo is doubtful. The guests’ coach has two missing players Sergio Garcia and Adrian Lopez.

Two out of the last four H2H fixtures were over 3,5.

Las Palmas conceded at least one goal in 71% of their home matches. They have failed to score in two home games.

This encounter has a high importance for both sides. A win for Las Palmas would be enough to ensure they escape the relegation zone, while a defeat for Espanyol could leave them one point clear of the drop zone. Taking into account the tournament status of both teams, we expect a scoring game. We predict Las Palmas’ obligatory goal and Espanyol can improve their stats of goals for, basing on the rival’s weak defensive line. Our betting option is over 2,5 with an excellent coefficient 1.98.
