Espanyol previously faced Getafe on Sunday, and the final score was a 1:2 victory away from home. The team is unbeaten in six games, recording three draws and three wins in the process. It might sound strange, but playing at home has proved to be rather a disadvantage in Espanyol’s recent 10 meetings, as the visiting teams won on four occasions and the hosts achieved just zero triumphs for the period. Draws were extremely common during the last ten games of the Barcelona-based outfit, with that being the final outcome in six. When we look at the team’s last five outings, we see that two of them ended with more than 2.5 goals, with the two involved teams scoring in four. Espanyol managed to keep one clean sheet and scored at least one goal in all matches. Over the course of the team’s previous five encounters, the sides scored an average of 2.4 goals.
