Why Espanyol Will Win
The visitors playing in the Europa league in the midweek means the hosts will be the fresher of the two sides in this game and with home ground advantage they should be able to win here,
Why Villareal Will Win
They are now just 1 point behind Real Madrid and perhaps more significantly 3 behind Valencia who have started to wobble a bit. Victory over Espanyol here would see them temporarily move into the top four and on current form they look capable of getting it.
