Rayo Vallecano v RCD Espanyol - LaLiga Santander
Espanyol and Valladolid square off in La Liga 2 on Saturday.

The Spanish Segunda Division returns with a fresh set of fixtures as Espanyol and Real Valladolid go head-to-head at the Stage Front Stadium on Saturday (October 14).

Espanyol lost for the second time this season following a 3-1 reverse at Villarreal B on Monday. Before that, Luis García Fernandez’s men were on a two-game winning streak, seeing off Racing de Ferrol and Cartagena respectively. Espanyol now return home, where they've won three of their four games this season.

Valladolid, meanwhile, continued their fine run of results with a 3-2 win over Mirandes last time out. Paulo Pezzolano’s side have won five straight league games, scoring nine goals and keeping four clean sheets, since a 1-1 draw against Elche on September 10.

With 19 points from 10 games, Valladolid are sixth in La Liga 2, one point and four places behind Espanyol.

Espanyol vs Real Valladolid Prediction

After stuttering into the new campaign, Valladolid have hit their stride and head into the weekend in search of a sixth straight win. However, Espanyol have been near impenetrable at home this season, so expect the two sides to cancel each other out in a low-scoring stalemate.

Prediction: Espanyol 1-1 Valladolid
