Espanyol (3 wins, 3 losses, 5 draws) should be feeling lucky about their 1-1 draw at home against Athletic Bilbao mid-week (1.23xG – 3.68xG). They took the lead with a penalty kick by de Tomas (who scored for the 4th consecutive match and now has 6 goals and 2 assists) but were equalized at the second half and had a lot of threatening situations.

Getafe vs Espanyol. Getafe are win-less so far in the season and have some of the worst numbers in the La Liga. Espanyol have been playing very good lately, but that was mostly because key forward de Tomas was excellent.

But now he is suspended, which is a HUGE blow for Espanyol’s attack. This looks like a boring match between the two sides, where goals should be at a premium. Taking the Under 2 Goals here.
