The La Liga match between Espanyol and Atletico Madrid features as’s best bet for Sunday September 12.

Bet Of The Day September 12 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

We’re heading to the La Liga for today’s best bet as reigning premiers Atletico Madrid take on newly-promoted Espanyol.

We can get great odds for Atletico to come out on top here.

Espanyol are the only team in La Liga not to score a goal so far this season from their three games.

They are clearly finding life back in the top flight challenging and that will only escalate against the defending champions, who only conceded 25 goals for the entire season in 2020/21.

Atletico have made a solid start to their title defence, taking seven points from a possible nine.

Diego Simeone’s team are unbeaten in their last eight La Liga games dating back to last season, winning six.

The return of Antoine Griezmann – who has scored five career goals vs Espanyol – on loan from Barcelona is also a big boost to Atletico’s attack, especially with Luis Suarez battling injury.

Atletico have been in an attacking mood to launch the season and are averaging 14.6 shots across their first three games – if they repeat those numbers against Espanyol, they will surely find the back of the net at least once.

Espanyol are struggling without a goal in three games and now come up against the reigning champions who are unbeaten in their last eight league games. All signs point to an Atletico victory on Sunday.

Key Points

  • Espanyol are winless in their first three La Liga games
  • Espanyol are the only team this season yet to score a goal
  • Atletico are unbeaten in their last eight La Liga matches
