Betting Tips for the game
Alaves are yet to win a single game this season, having registered one draw and one defeat in the opening two league outings. However, Alaves have been a decent side on home soil in La Liga last season, having lost just nine of their 19 home league fixtures. They are currently undefeated in five home games and they also beat Espanyol 1-0 in their most recent home meeting with the Catalans.
On the contrary, Espanyol are currently on a 13-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, winning eleven in this term.
