Venue: Coliseum Alfonso Pérez
Getafe welcome Espanyol to the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Perez on Sunday evening, with the hosts still looking for their first La Liga victory of the season. They are coming off a 1-1 draw with Granada on Thursday, as Jorge Molina scored an injury-time equalizer to cancel out Enes Unals first-half goal to deprive Getafe of their first win of the season. Espanyol also shared the spoils in a 1-1 home draw with Athletic Bilbao, which made it 4 games unbeaten in the league for the visitors.
Enes Unal is a good attacking pick from Getafe. Unal is one of their two-goal scorers this season with 1 goal to his name in La Liga and averages 1.5 shots per game.
Carles Alena is the best midfield option from Getafe as he leads the team with 2 assists this season in the league. He averages 1.2 shots, 1.2 key passes and 1 tackle per game as well.
Damian Suarez can be a solid defensive option thanks to his impact on both ends of the field. He leads the team with an average of 3.1 tackles per game and also puts up 1.8 key passes per game.
Adrian Embarba is a good option from Espanyol with Raul de Tomas being suspended. Embarba has 2 assists in the league this season and averages 1.8 shots to go with 2.2 key passes per game. He also averages 1.8 tackles per game.
Sergi Darder is another decent option for the midfield. Darder contributes all over the field, with averages of 1.4 tackles, 0.7 interceptions, 1.6 shots, and 43 passes per game.
For the defense, Aleix Vidal is a great option. Vidal has 2 goals in the league this season and averages 1.1 tackles per game. He also averages 26.7 passes per game and is instrumental on both ends of the pitch.
Enes Unal: Enes Unal is our top pick for captaincy on the back of that goal against Granada last time around. Espanyol have looked a bit suspect at the back recently and we back him to add to his tally here.
Carles Alena: Alena’s all-round game makes him a solid option for the armband. He has assisted twice as mentioned earlier while averaging 1 tackle, 1.2 shots, 1.2 key passes, and 24.3 passes per game.
