Sevilla goalkeeper Andres Palop has highlighted the individual threats posed by Espanyol forwards Walter Pandiani, Raul Tamudo and Luis Garcia ahead of Wednesday´s UEFA Cup showdown between the two Spanish sides.

Espanyol are the top scorers in this season´s UEFA Cup having notched 32 goals in 14 matches, with Pandiani the leading overall marksman with 11 strikes and Luis Garcia adding six. In contrast, holders Sevilla have scored 11 fewer goals in their 12 matches - while their top goalscorers Ernesto Chevanton and Luis Fabiano have netted just four times each.

"They are of different characteristics. Pandiani is a very dangerous player, who is very good in the air and can cause much damage from corners," said Palop, who famously headed in an injury-time corner himself to keep Sevilla from being dumped out of UEFA Cup last-16 by Shakhtar Donetsk earlier this year.
