Suarez thunderbolt downs Espanyol

A thunderbolt free-kick from Damian Suarez was enough to see 10-man Getafe see off a toothless Espanyol on Sunday afternoon.

The midfielder let fly with a stunning long-range effort past Espanyol goalkeeper Pau Lopez after Faycal Fajr’s tap from the free-kick – a goal worthy of winning any match.

The hosts were then reduced to ten men shortly after when former Arsenal and Milan midfielder Mathieu Flamini picked up two quickfire yellow cards.

The beleaguered Catalan outfit once again were meek in attack and failed to register a shot on target for the entirety of the match.

Getafe climb into the top half of the table while Quique Sanchez Flores’s men slip below Alaves into 16th.
