Three enforced changes for Espanyol

Meanwhile, injuries to Víctor Sánchez, Leo Baptistao and Hernán Pérez have forced visiting coach Quique Sánchez Flores to bring three new faces into his line-up.

Javi López is drafted in at right-back, midfielder Papa Diop starts and winger Pablo Piatti is back after being unfit to feature against Sporting Gijón last weekend.
