Aiming to snap their eight-game winless streak, Espanyol play host to Getafe in round 27 of the Spanish La Liga on Saturday.

The visitors, meanwhile, will head into this one seeking to complete a league double over the hosts after claiming a 2-1 victory back in October’s reverse fixture.

Espanyol continue to struggle for form in La Liga as they fell to a humbling 5-1 defeat at the hands of Villarreal last Sunday.

They have now failed to taste victory in any of their last eight games across all competitions, claiming three draws and losing five since January’s Copa del Rey victory over second-tier side SD Ponferradina.

With 29 points from 26 games, Espanyol are currently 13th in the La Liga standings, two points and two places above Saturday’s visitors.

Meanwhile, Getafe were involved in a share of the spoils for the second game running as they came from behind twice to salvage a 2-2 draw against Alaves last time out.

They head into Saturday’s game unbeaten in all but one of their last six games, claiming two wins and three draws.

While they will be looking to return to winning ways, they have struggled for results on the road, where they are yet to pick up a win and boast the division’s second-worst record with six points from 13 games.
