Machin was appointed by the club in October, replacing David Gallego following a poor start to the LaLiga campaign.
However, the team's struggles continued under Machin, with the former Girona coach only yielding five points from a possible 30 in LaLiga.
Espanyol currently sit bottom of the league, five points from safety.
