Both teams to score

Our first Espanyol vs Racing Santander prediction is on the team to score. We expect both teams to find the back of the net here. Espanyol are unbeaten in their last five league engagements while Racing Santander lost only one of their last five La Liga 2 engagements.

Over 2.5 goals

The next Espanyol vs Racing Santander prediction is on the total match goals. We are tipping a goal-fest here. With both teams to score and the fact that draws have been rare in this matchup, the probability of a winner is quite high, so we could see three or more goals on matchday.

Espanyol to win

Our final Espanyol vs Racing Santander prediction is a bet on the 1×2 market. We are tipping a home win here. Espanyol will be keen to go back to the top flight and that quest starts with maximizing their potential when playing home games. They avoided defeat in the season opener, so with home support and a win probability of 56% with odds of 1.80, all conditions here are in Espanyol’s favour.

Espanyol vs Racing Santander La Liga  2 Round 2 Match Preview

The goal here is to remain unbeaten after this second round of La Liga fixture, round 2 in the 2023/24 season.

A 1-1 draw in the season opener means Espanyol now have something to build on going forward. Home support and a fairly good run of form are factors that should favour the hosts on matchday.

Notably, Espanyol never lost in their last four league matches, which include four games in La Liga and the season opener. However, the fact that they were relegated last season means Espanyol must now work even harder to get something from their home games and this clash with Santander gives them a chance to get their first win of the season.

However, this has never been an easy game, noting that Espanyol won it 7 times and lost 9 times in 20 previous duels with Santander. The visitors have equally had a fairly good run, losing only once in the previous 5 league games, so we expect this to be a difficult game with both teams likely to score.

Espanyol vs Racing Santander form and H2H

Seven wins for Espanyol, 4 draws and 9 victories for Racing Santander in the past means this is likely to be a difficult game. Take a look at the team forms below.
