Bottom of the table Espanyol will be taking on Mallorca for their 23rd game in La Liga. The only reason why RCD Mallorca is a spot above the danger zone in spite of having 18 points is due to the goal difference and will be eager to bag a win in order to ease off the pressure. Espanyol on the other end is 20th in the league with just 15 points under their belt.
