Espanyol show mediocre results in recent year, finishing on 13th place last season. The team was focused on signing free agents, convincing Demichelis and Reyes to join the club. These are notable players but their best years had gone. The teaь had quite successful pre-season, playing seven sparring matches with three wins and four draws.
Sevilla hosts seven head-to-heads with Espanyil since 2011, taking wins in last six of them with 16-4 on aggregate. Defeats to Real and Barcelona should force the team to bounce back and such convenient opponents in home match give Sevilla perfect opportunity to start the season with confident three points.
Prediction for the match: Sevilla to win.
