Espanyol striker Daniel Osvaldo says they deserve to be in the Champions League places.

Osvaldo believes other sides will continue to underestimate Espanyol and says that will play into their hands.

"If other teams think we don't deserve to be there or that we are up there because we have been lucky, that's better for us because they will be underestimating us a little," he said.

"We are there because we deserve to be there, we have a lot of confidence in ourselves and nobody has gifted us anything."
