• Espanyol have won four of their last six top-flight meetings with Almeria (D1 L1), keeping a clean sheet in all four wins.
  • Almeria have only lost two of their four La Liga trips to Almeria, but those were the only two played at Cornella-El Prat.
  • Javier Aguirre is unbeaten against Almeria as a La Liga boss, but has only won two of his previous six against them (D4).
  • If they fail to win this game, Espanyol will set their worst winless run of the season (five, currently four).
  • Almeria are one of only two sides (with bottom club Betis) not to have taken a single point from their last four league games.
  • Espanyol’s last three league goals have all been scored by different South American players (Cordoba, Stuani, Colotto).
