The ESL vs VLD match preview –

The second placed team in the La Liga this season is Espanyol FC and they will be looking to prove their doubters wrong as they take on Real Valladolid on Friday.

Espanyol FC have slowly but steadily crept their way to near the top of the Spanish League table. They are just a point away from Barcelona, who are the league leaders. It has been a sensational turn of events in the La Liga this season. Teams such as Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Valencia are behind them. It has only been nine games, but in a competition such as a league system, it is the consistency that matters.

On the other hand, Real Valladolid has also been going strong this season. They are placed sixth in the table and above a struggling Real Madrid side. The team is on a three-game winning streak, and coach Sergio Gonzalez would be content with the way his players are performing. Even though they aren’t a team that scores a lot of goals, their defence has been solid and almost impenetrable.
