Barcelona, April 6 (IANS) Atletico Madrid will be eyeing their second La Liga win this football season against Espanyol at the Cornella-El Prat on Saturday, where the Rojiblancos have enjoyed the taste of victory only once since the stadium was opened in 2009-10.

In all six games between the two teams at the Cornella-El Prat, Atletico have lost three times against the hosts, drew in two and won 1-0 in 2012-13, reports Efe.

Espanyol will be seeking a victory next Saturday in round 32 of La Liga against Atletico, and will try to take the advantage of the blow suffered by the Rojiblancos in the quarter-finals of the Champions League against Barcelona on Tuesday, which ended 2-1 for the Catalan team with Fernando Torres being sent off.
