Espanyol will attempt to end a three-match winless streak when they host Granada at the RCDE Stadium on Saturday. The hosts are coming off a 2-1 loss at the hands of bottom of the table Getafe last Sunday, which leaves them 11th in the standings. Granada meanwhile won 3-0 away against Levante on Monday, which extended their unbeaten run to 4 games and another win here could see them leapfrog their opponents in the table.
