Espanyol vs Atletico Madrid - Competition: Spanish Primera Division

Espanyol team lost two games in a row. In the last league round the Periquitos were defeated by their table neighbours, Real Sociedad, that scored the only goal at Anoeta after a costly mistake of Espanyol’s goalkeeper, Kiko Casilla. The players from FC Barcelona had their chances but they could not find a way to break Sociedad’s defence. Espanyol managed 9 shots that evening with 4 of them on goal. In the league standings Espanyol are sitting 10th with a safe distance of 8 points over the relegation zone. Espanyol have played 13 league matches so far this season at Power8 Stadium (Cornellà de Llobregat, Spain). They have won 7 of them, drawn 3 and lost 3. Their home goal balance is 19:11 (with the overall balance of 32:37). Barcelona’s best scorers are Sergio Garcia and Christian Stuani, who have already found the way to the net 9 times in the league games each.
Atletico Madrid team are slowly losing their chances of defending the title. After last round’s draw with Valencia, Atletico are six points away from Real Madrid and seven points from leading FC Barcelona. While hosting Valencia at Estadio Vicente Calderon in Madrid, Atletico had only one thing in mind – gain the whole package of three points. Koke put his team on lead in the first half and everything looked brightly for the hosts. A late goal from Shkodran Mustafi saved the draw for Valencia. The title holders remain third. They definitely need to look behind as Valencia are just one point down. Atletico Madrid have played 12 games so far on the road in Liga 2014/2015. They have added 20 points to their standings with those away matches (6 wins, 2 draws and 4 defeats). Their away goal balance is 16:13. Atletico score twice as much when playing in Madrid though. The visitors are waiting for a crucial second-leg game in Champions League where they are facing Bayer Leverkusen (the first match in Germany ended with the Germans’ 1:0 victory).
