Espanyol

With two wins, one draw, and three losses in the last six games, Espanyol hasn't been in great form, but they have done well enough to stay close to other teams in the relegation battle and have a chance to stay up.

When it comes to team news, Alvaro Morata joins the team's injury list, along with Jan Oblak, Thomas Lemar, Memphis Depay, Stefan Savic, Marcos Llorente, and Reinildo.

Player to Watch – Joselu

While we expect a close and exciting game, we went with Joselu as our player to watch in this game since this is the key match for Espanyol in their fight for survival and Joselu is the team's best performer this season.

After all, the experienced striker has led the team with fifteen goals and two assists in this La Liga season, so Atletico Madrid will have to pay special attention to him in this duel.
