Away RCD Espanyol

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Football score predictions involving Espanyol have been worth a punt this season. Their season so far has consisted of eight one-nil games and six one-all games, it is worth looking at those results in any La Liga preview that involves the Catalonians. It’s 7/1 for a Betis 1-0, 9/1 for an Espanyol 1-0 win and 6/1 for the 1-1

2 We fancy:

A safe football prediction here is the draw at half-time and at full-time at 15/4. Espanyol have drawn their last three away La Liga matches and have been drawing at both half-time and full-time in all three.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Leo Baptistao and Gerard Moreno have been responsible for all four of Espanyol’s goals in their last three games. Given the away side’s preference for falling behind, you can get odds of 11/2 for Moreno to score last and 8/1 for Baptistao to do the same. The away side are also 15/1 to win from behind.
