Espanyol vs Atletico Madrid build-up & previous line-ups:
On their La Liga return Espanyol are yet to win a game this season. Vicente Moreno’s men, who finished top of Spain’s second division last term, have so far picked up two points from their opening three games. Across those outings the Barcelona-based club have failed to find the net, the only goalless top-flight side heading into matchday four, however the budgerigars are proving hard to breach and currently own the best defence of the sides currently in the bottom half (one goal conceded). Espanyol have also won three of their previous six league games against Atlético, this after winning one of their last 11 matches against them.
As for the defending champions Atlético Madrid are unbeaten in three. Diego Simeone’s side have picked up seven points from nine available. Their only misstep came at home last time out when they were held to a 2-2 draw by Europa League holders Villarreal and it could have easily been a loss. Heading into the final seconds ‘Yellow Submarine defender Aïssa Mandi scored a bizarre own goal much to Atleti’s relief. It’s also worth noting that Atlético have failed to win in their last three league away games at Espanyol after winning on three of their previous five visits.

Player to watch: Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid)
Everything is set for Antoine Griezmann’s second Atlético Madrid debut. The 30-year-old French forward returned on a season-long loan from Barcelona where he managed 35 goals across 102 appearances in all competitions. Breaking that down further, Griezmann would net 22 times in 74 matches, a sharp contrast to his Atleti past. During his first spell in Madrid he managed 94 goals across 180 league outings, but his expected goals (xG) total was 68, that difference of +26 is bigger than in his aforementioned Barça outings (+2, 22 goals/20 xG). Across 16 previous La Liga meetings with Espanyol — while representing Real Sociedad, Atlético Madrid and Barcelona — he’s managed five goals with three of those coming on the road.
