RCD Espanyol and Levante meet on Saturday for a Liga BBVA matchday 29 clash with very little between the sides.
Espanyol, ninth in the league with 36 points, will be looking for their eighth win in Cornellà - El Prat this season to wrap up safety in the division as soon as possible and, results permitting, continue their quest for a European place. "Levante come into this match on the back of a couple of defeats and I think we are very similar sides. As such, it will be a tough game against a strong, physical team", declared Javier Aguirre, who is putting his faith in the same 18 players who travelled to the Spanish capital to take on Atlético Madrid last weekend.
Levante finds itself in a similar situation, sitting in tenth place the Valencian outfit will also be looking to climb up the league table between now and the end of the season. "There are 30 points left to play for, which means that a good run could allow us to aspire for different objectives to the ones we originally set out", stated the Levante coach, Joaquín Caparrós, who will be without the injured Juanfran García.
