      Analysis: Espanyol vs Las Palmas (19 December 2015)
      « Reply #1 on: December 17 2015, 10:15 »

      Espanyol and Las Palmas meet at RCDE Stadium, in a match for the 16th round of the Primera División. There is no recent record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams. The last head‑to‑head was played on 24‑02‑2002 and ended with the final score: Espanyol (3‑1) Las Palmas. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

      Analysis of Espanyol

      After 5 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses, the home team is in the 12th position, havinf won 17 points so far. In the last match, they have lost in an away match against Celta de Vigo by (1‑0), after in the previous match they have tied (1‑1) at home, against Levante. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 3 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 14 goals scored and 24 conceded; against 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 16 goals scored and 20 conceded. In their last match, for the Copa del Rey, they got a home win against Levante by (2‑1). In the last 7 home league matches Espanyol has a record of 3 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 11 points out of 21 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. 16 of their last 25 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals, so there is a tendency for few goals in their home matches. They have conceded the first goal in 10 of their 15 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 1.

      Espanyol comes to this match motivated by a 2-1 home win over Levante, with goals by Burgui and Caicedo. They are usually very aggressive and put their opponents under a lot of pressure. They prefer the right wing to attack, using the offensive quality of winger Javi López, and like to use any opportunity to shoot from outside the area. However, they have a few problems, like defensive set pieces.

      Analysis of Las Palmas

      The away team is currently in the 19th position of the league, with 13 points won, after 3 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Sporting Gijón, by (3‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Real Betis, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 3 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 21 goals scored and 22 conceded; against 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 20 goals scored and 14 conceded. In their last match, for the Copa del Rey, they got an away tie against Real Sociedad by (1‑1). In the last 7 away league matches Las Palmas has a record of 2 draws and 5 losses, so they have won 2 points out of 21 possible.

      In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 7 away matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 1‑0 (3 out of 7 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. They have opened up the score in only 3 of the last 15 matches for the Primera División, they have reached half‑time in front in 2 of those 3 matches and held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in all of them. In 15 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 10 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 9 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

      Las Palmas is one of the weakest teams in La Liga and hasn’t got enough technical and tactical arguments to face most of this league’s teams. Moreover, they can’t count on Mubarak, Javi Castellano and Pedro Bigas, who are recovering from injuries. But they do count on Willian José, who is surely motivated, after having scored the winning goal in the last round near the end of the match (93’). Sergio Araújo is the striker, but he has had a few problems scoring lately.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario is that there will be a few goals. The last 2 matches Espanhyol and in the last 6 of Las Palmas have ended with Over 1,5,so there is a tendency for an open match with goal opportunities for both teams, which means that a bet in favour of Over 1,5 Goals is of good value.
