The key battles to look out for in Valencia CF vs RCD Espanyol

Rodrigo vs Gerard Moreno

With five goals in his last four matches, Rodrigo continues to profit from the team of the team finding themselves in a good run of form, and he will want to continue in the same vein against RCD Espanyol on Sunday evening. Gerard Moreno is the key goalscorer for the visitors, with 12 goals to his name so far this season, which is two less than Rodrigo. The Valencia CF striker is more efficient than his rival, however, needing just 51 shots for his 14 goals, rather than Moreno needing to let fly on 65 occasions. Rodrigo also has more assists than his counterpart, providing four in comparison to Gerard Moreno’s solitary one. The Espanyol forward has been on more dribbles, however, making 81 to Rodrigo’s 57.

Guedes vs Piatti

Pablo Piatti is making his return to Mestalla this weekend. To date this season, he has featured in 25 games, the same as Goncalo Guedes, but the Portuguese winger is having far more of an impact in his team’s plans going forward. With four goals (to Piatti’s one) and seven assists compared to the Espanyol wide man’s two, Guedes is turning into one of the more dangerous players in LaLiga in terms of wingers. The Portugal international dribbles more than Piatti too (93 to 45), but the Argentine has made 68 crosses compared to his counterpart’s 27.
