Coral’s bet of the day

  • Gerard Moreno struck in reverse fixture for Espanyol
  • The Spanish striker has three goals this season so far
  • Gerard dispatched in last outing against old club Villarreal

Espanyol’s Gerard 2/1 to net anytime

There is exciting La Liga action to be enjoyed this Monday evening and a potential profit to be made from proceedings too, with Espanyol’s Gerard Moreno 2/1 to score anytime against Real Sociedad as Coral’s bet of the day.

On home soil, Espanyol’s menacing forward will look to add to his impressive strike in his last outing, having dispatched in a thrilling 2-2 stalemate with his former employers Villarreal, in a game which he also was sent off.

Although, with three goals so far this term, the Spaniard is proving he is capable of causing defences many troubles and will aim to make another crucial impact this time around against Sociedad at the Estadi Cornella-El Prat.

Gerard can inspire Espanyol

During his short but sweet career, 23-year-old Gerard has netted more goals against only three other sides than Sociedad, which include AD Alcorcon, Cadiz CF and Apollon Limassol, and he can add to his tally against his latest opponents on home turf during this Monday night La Liga meeting.

The last time these two Spanish teams collided, Gerard was on target yet again, clinically firing in from the penalty spot in an eventual 3-2 victory on their travels, with the experience of such success ready to benefit the Periquitos in this latest encounter.

Gerard and his teammates are vying to push up the Spanish top-flight table and edge further away from the daunting relegation zone, as they currently occupy 17th position, with Sociedad narrowly ahead by two points and three places.

A home ruling over the Royals would boost their season prospects massively and Spanish ace Gerard is set to play a pivotal part in such a vital clash, making odds of 2/1 for him to net anytime a truly tasty punt which could help get your week off to the best possible start!
