Goal Statistics

Espanyol's fans will be hoping for goals on Sunday evening, not least because Albacete have conceded in each of their last 6 La Liga 2 matches. A PG of 1.8 for J. González Álvarez's side suggests that run should continue.

Espanyol's defensive record is to be admired, J. González Álvarez's men having conceded 1 or less in 5 consecutive La Liga 2 outings. An underwhelming PG rating of 1.0 for Albacete makes sense in this context.
