Team News

  • David Lopez and Javi Fuego both miss out due to suspension for the home side.
  • Oscar Duarte should be fit enough to start at centre-back ahead of Naldo.
  • Marc Roca should slot into the base of midfield with Victor Sanchez preferred to Esteban Granero in the middle of the park.
  • Unai Nunez is back from a ban and should start at centre-back despite the return of Yeray.
  • Inigo Lekue and Enric Saborit should start at left and right back, with Mikel Balenziaga and Oscar de Marcos out injured.
  • Inaki Williams should be set to play out on the right wing for Kuko Ziganda's men.


  • Espanyol have won three of their last four games, with Quique Sanchez Flores' side finally turning a corner. However, there is some doubt whether he will still be manager as Stoke have offered him a way back to the Premier League.
  • The hosts went through to the quarter finals of the Copa del Rey in midweek, and things are looking up for them, especially given their impressive home form in Cornella.
  • Athletic are one of the more in-form teams in La Liga at present, and have recorded four wins in their last five matches.
