Luzern vs Espanyol Match Preview
Espanyol beat Stjarnan (7-1 on aggregate) with confidence and they extended a great unbeaten streak going back as far as early April, where they bagged nine wins and five draws across competitions. They now travel to Luzern hoping to keep it up with an upset at Swissporarena, coming in a great mood and as heavy favourites.
RCDE have been scoring numbers of goals through their pre-season and we’ve seen them bag 18 goals in last five outings since mid-July. They conceded four along the way but David Gallego will hardly be worried about it, with great team spirits now in the dressing room.
Luzern made their way past KI (2-0) with two narrow wins across two legs but they’ve now seen Servette (1-0) end their four-match unbeaten streak in Super League, leaving them in search of an upset against La Liga rivals in they’re to make it to the Europa League Play-offs.
Die Leuchten have been unpredictable beforehand and have been far from impressive through the pre-season, despite a tough schedule seen along the way – with losses to Crystal Palace (on penalties) and Eintracht Frankfurt (1-3) on the records. They could now need more to beat RCDE and we don’t really see them up to the task.
We will thus back the visitors to snatch an important advantage in the first leg already and going for Espanyol to win at 8/11 with Coral feels like a solid approach, as Luzern keep struggling for consistency at the back.
We do feel we’re in for an exciting occasion and with that in mind, we’re going for goals too and backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 49/50 with Unibet – which has caught the eye of many in the know with Espanyol’s attacking approach to their fixtures.
