LAS PALMAS v ESPANYOL – PRIMERA DIVISION Betting Preview + Prediction
22 April, Gran Canaria, 19:00 GMT+0
Las Palmas is coming from a draw against Gijon (1:1) and it was a fair outcome to be fair. On Tuesday the home side suffered a defeat against Real Betis (0:1) in Sevilla. But we must mention Las Palmas was 1 man down before 45′, when Aythami (CB) was sent off. That left a big hole in defence and it was clear that Las Palmas will have a hard time in 2nd half. With that defeat, Las Palmas is 13th in the domestic league. They are still safe from relegation zone, being 8 points above it, with 4 games to go.. It is also possible for the home side to finish in the top half of the table if they perform well in the upcoming matches.
The only important missing player for Las Palmas is Aythami, who was sent off in the last match. Other than that, Quinte Setien’s side is ready to go.
The visitors have not won in the last 4 matches and they don’t seem as a threatening opponent for Las Palmas. Espanyol is above Relegation zone by 5 points and they will need as many points as they can get to secure their position out of the relegation zone. On the road, Espanyol conceived 37 goals, and it’s clear where the problem of their poor performances lies.
Going into this match, Sanchez, Caicedo, Duarte, Arbilla, Correa and Canas are all missing. On the positive note, Fuentes is back with his team.
I believe Las Palmas has a slight advantage in this game. Despite Espanyol managing to draw against Celta Vigo, the statistic shows they did not perform up to part and arguably the draw was more that generous outcome for Espanyol. Prior to that, Espanyol was beaten by Levante and that’s a poor outcome for today’s visitors. Pick Las Palmas to win, as I believe they will perform well in front of their own fans.
