This game features two teams who were surprise packages in the league last season and it will be interesting to see how the game turns out.

Against all odds last season Espanyol finished 8th in the league table making it one of their highest rankings in recent memory.

They defeated this opponent in both league fixtures last season and they obviously still look more dangerous than their visitors and may prove too much for them again.

They managed to keep hold of their main stars Pablo Piatti and Gerard Moreno who played huge parts in their success last season.

Many considered Leganes favourites to get relegated at the beginning of last season but they survived and they will be looking to make their continued stay in the La Liga count.

They defeated Alaves last weekend at home.

Although the victory came via a narrow 1-0 score line that will have done their confidence a lot of good ahead of this match.

Leganes have not won any of their last 25 away games losing 10 of those trips.

It will interesting to see if they have improved or not.

Their recent head to head record shows two losses from two games against Espanyol.
