Looking to continue in their hunt for European football, Espanyol will see this weekend’s fixture against Real Zaragoza as a massive opportunity to assume fourth spot in the Primera Division.
The 5th placed side are currently unbeaten in their last seven league outings and can go into the European qualification places this weekend, swapping places with Levante who face the unenviable task of a trip to Real Madrid.
Zaragoza, on the other hand, appear to have completely different targets this campaign and would snap your hand off if offered top flight survival this season.

Tha being said, the bottom placed side look unlikely of retaining their spot in La Liga for next season and currently find themselves some eleven points from safety.
The Blanquillos are now without a win in fourteen league fixtures and haven’t tasted victory since October 2011.
Espanyol have looked impressive this season but will be hoping for a turnaround of the reverse fixture that occurred in September when Zaragoza managed a 2-1 win over the Spanish outfit; one of only two this season.
With just four points difference between fourth and ninth positions, the race truly is heating up for who will gain entry to next season’s Champions League campaign, but Espanyol will be hoping to steal a march on their competition with a home win over basement side Real Zaragoza on Sunday.
