Alcorcon vs Espanyol Preview
On Sunday we have the last fixture of the season in La Liga SmartBank. It is still all to play for as relegation threatened Alcorcón host promoted Espanyol at the Estadio Santo Domingo. Both sides need the three points for their own reasons and this should make for an exciting match.
Alcorcón are coming into this match in need of a win. If they do not get anything in this match, it could see Los Alfareros relegated. In their last outing they lost 1-0 to an in-form Girona side. It was a match where they held their own and it looked like they had done enough to earn a draw until Monchu’s thunderbolt in the 87th minute rocketed into the back of the net.
Head Coach Juan Antonio Anquela will have to rally his side to give it one more big performance if they want to see themselves in this division next season. There is a possibility that if results go their way they could still avoid the drop even if they lose, but it is going to be a long day of twists and turns.
Espanyol have long since secured promotion and if they win here they are champions. It has been a fantastic season for Head Coach Vicente Moreno as his side has dominated for the majority of the season. However they did take their foot of the gas in their last outing drawing at home 1-1 with Tenerife.
This result has given rivals Mallorca a sniff at pipping them to clinch the title. Los Periquitos will want to make sure this doesn’t happen and put on a strong performance. Star striker Raúl de Tomás will be hoping to add to his tally of 23 goals and win this season’s Pichichi. Espanyol will be without midfielder Sergi Darder as he was sent off in their last match.
