Real Valladolid – Espanyol Preview: News, Latest Form, and Potential Lineups

Check out both teams in more detail before their upcoming duel, including probable Real Valladolid vs Espanyol lineups:

Real Valladolid

With two wins, one draw, and three losses in the last six games in La Liga, Real Valladolid has been rather inconsistent in that time. That also wasn't enough to keep the team away from the relegation zone as Real Valladolid is currently sitting one spot above it and with just one point more than the first team in the relegation zone.

When it comes to team news, Kenedy, Jordi Masip, Anuar Tuhami, and Darwin Machis are injured at the moment, while Kike Perez and Selim Amallah are suspended.

Real Valladolid Predicted Lineup:

Aceves – Rosa, J. Sanchez, El Yamiq, Olaza – Plano, Mesa, Monchu – Plata, Larin, Leon

Espanyol

After failing to notch a win for three games in a row, Espanyol beat Elche and Mallorca in the last two rounds. In the last six games, Espanyol has three wins, two draws, and just one loss, so that's a solid haul for a team like Espanyol. Overall, they are now sitting close to the middle of the standings with 27 points from 23 games.

Meanwhile, Espanyol is currently without injured Keidi Bare, Dani Gomez, Adria Pedrosa, Gori, and Ruben Sanchez.

Espanyol Predicted Lineup:

Fernandez – Gil, Cabrera, Montes, Olivan – Vidal, Darder, Souza, Suarez – Joselu, Braithwaite

La Liga Standings

Player to Watch: Sergio Leon

Given that we expect this match to end in a draw, we could've gone with a player from either team as our player to watch, but our choice for this match is Sergio Leon.

The experienced Spanish striker is Real Valladolid's top goalscorer this season with five goals in La Liga in twenty appearances. While that may not sound too impressive, he is still the player on which Espanyol has to focus in this game.
