Espanyol have lost 15 of their 22 road games since the start of last season.
Las Palmas v Espanyol - Friday 19:45, Sky Sports 5
Las Palmas continue to exceed expectations after they managed to finish up in 11th last term following promotion as they currently find themselves up in 7th. Espanyol, conversely, are languishing down in 17th having won just once so far this season in what’s been a difficult return to Spain for Quique Sanchez Flores so far.
Las Palmas have lost just six of their 22 home games since the start of last season and three of those defeats came against the top three. Indeed, if we exclude matches against these teams, Las Palmas are unbeaten in their last 15 at home and they’ve won three of their last four when hosting bottom-six teams, scoring at least four goals in each of these wins and leading at the break in three of the games.
Espanyol have lost 15 of their 22 road games since the start of last season and as a result Las Palmas look an excellent price to win at odds-against. Since Espanyol have conceded more than twice in eight of these defeats and Las Palmas have proved that they can be prolific at home to lesser sides, we’re also going to take a chance on the hosts covering the -2 handicap at a juicy 10.0.
