Espanyol made sure of another season in the top flight after a 0-2 win at Getafe on Sunday lunchtime. The early chances fell to the home side, with Lafita going close and Cristian Alvarez saving from Paco Alcácer, but with eight minutes to go to the break Verdú picked up Sergio García's headed pass to open the scoring for the visitors. Lopo had a headed goal ruled out for offside before half time, but a few minutes after the restart Borja was sent off for a second bookable offence, and the locals were left with nine men when Fede Fernández was shown a red card for a tackle on an opponent with twenty minutes to go. Four minutes later it was all over when Stuani turned the ball over the line after Colotto played back a long Wakaso free kick, and only a couple of late saves by Codina stopped Verdú and Simao from increasing the lead near the end. The victory takes Javier Aguirre's side to within a point of their opponents, and both teams still have a chance of reaching the European spots this year.
