Espanyol's 1-0 defeat at Barcelona on Wednesday night confirmed their relegation to the second tier, while Eibar currently sit 15th in the table, just four points clear of the relegation zone with three games left.
Espanyol's relegation to the Segunda Division was confirmed on Wednesday as they suffered a 1-0 loss to Barcelona at Camp Nou, with Luis Suarez scoring the only goal of the Catalan derby.
Periquitos have not actually played outside of Spain's top flight since the 1993-94 campaign but that will be the case next term, having endured an extremely tough season at this level.
Indeed, the Catalan side have only won five of their 35 league matches, picking up just 24 points, to sit bottom of the table; they have only managed 21 goals, while a record of 55 conceded is the second worst in the division.
A number of players are expected to move on during this summer's transfer window, and it will be very interesting to see what type of business the club do ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
Espanyol will actually enter this match off the back of six straight league defeats, although they have won since returning to action last month - beating Alaves 2-0 at the RCDE Stadium.
Eibar, meanwhile, are not safe from the drop at this season; a record of nine wins, nine draws and 17 defeats from 35 matches has brought them 36 points, leaving them 15th in the table.
Los Armeros are only four points clear of 18th-placed Mallorca, though, and therefore have work to do if they are to secure their spot at this level for the 2020-21 campaign.
Jose Luis Mendilibar's side will enter this weekend's match off the back of a 0-0 draw with Eibar on Thursday night, but they have lost two of their last three since impressively winning at Granada on June 28.
There is no question that Eibar would have earmarked this game as the chance to secure a victory, but Espanyol ran out 2-1 winners in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
Espanyol La Liga form: LLLLLL
Eibar La Liga form: DWWLLD
Sebastien Corchia has been ruled out with a knee problem, although the Catalan side are otherwise in good shape when it comes to injuries.
Espanyol possible starting lineup:
Diego Lopez; Gomez, Espinosa, Cabrera, Vila; Roca, Darder, David Lopez, Melendo; Wu Lei, De Tomas
Eibar possible starting lineup:
Dmitrovic; Correa, Burgos, Bigas, Cote; Leon, Diop, Alvarez, De Blasis; Kike, Charles
We say: Espanyol 1-1 Eibar
Eibar will be desperate to win as they bid to stay clear of the relegation zone, but the pressure is somewhat off Espanyol, and the home side have a lot of talented players despite their struggles. We fancy a low-scoring draw here, which would not be the worst result in the world for either side.
