Espanyol's new coach Mané got off to a good start with a 1-1 draw at Betis, ending a run of four defeats in a row which signalled the end for Tintin Márquez. The Catalans started strongly, Juanito lucky to be let off a penalty when he handled in the area and Sergio Sánchez heading against the post. Emaná fired a couple of shots just wide, but Callejón almost gave the visitors the lead when he shot against the crossbar close to half time.
Both goals came after the break however , Emaná scoring his fifth in as many games after Sergio García set him up to put the home side in front ten minutes after the restart. Coro equalised a few minutes later after picking up a pass from Nené to beat Casto and save a point, but with none of the bottom four losing they still find themselves down in the drop zone.
