The home side overcame an initial cold start after Racing got themselves ahead with a 12th min STUANI goal, but that was basically all by the visitors. From here Espanyol took over with an equalizer in the 26th min by VERDU & another goal shortly later by young onloan Brazilian sensation COUTINHO.
Racing started stronger in the second half but ran out of steam & then in the 52nd min went down to 10 men as Gullon was sent off. Espanyol took over again & "killed off" the match with a third goal via HECTOR MORENO in the 79th min.
Take note, tomorrow with have more Spanish Football with Round 29 kicking off mid-week Liga action.
