    • 42' Victor Sanchez brings down Apono with a late challenge. That will be a free-kicik to the visiting side.
    • 40' He finished with supreme coolness from inside the opposition box. Lovely play by Wakaso to set up Vasquez for the opening goal. A 1-0 lead for Espanyol.
    • 38' GOAL! Vazquez buries the opening goal for Espanyol. Can't say that goal wasn't coming. Decent build-up. More than deserved.
    • 36' Espanyol now up to five attempts at goal before Jose Mari sees his shot blocked from outside of the area. The visitors finally have a shot at goal. Not much else to write home about.
    • 35' Hector Moreno goes for goal with a header from inside the Zaragoza box from Juan Albin's ball, but over the bar with that effort.
    • 33' Helder Postiga is caught offside from Raul Goni's pass.
    • 31' Moreno needing a spot of treatment after colliding with Mano. Suffered a blow on the head there.
    • 29' Joan Capdevila picks out Juan Albin who wallops a shot wide of the target.
    • 27' Apono tries a through ball, but Helder Postiga is caught offside.
    • 25' Juan Albin is the first man to be booked for bringing down Victor Sanchez.
    • 23' Zaragoza yet to manage a shot at goal in this match. All a bit cagey, it must be said.
    • 21' Couple of corners for Espanyol, but nothing doing as the visiting side hold firm.
    • 19' Abraham tries a through ball, but Raul Goni sets off too quickly and is deemed to be offside.
    • 17' Raul Moreno gets away the first shot of the night as he drills an effort wide of the goal. Roberto happy to see that one fly wide of his goal.
    • 15' Both of these clubs would pick up their first points of the season with a draw in this one. Long way to go right enough.
    • 13' Helder Postiga earns a free-kick after being sent to spinning to the deck by Raul Rodriguez.
    • 11' Here are the teams for this evening's action: Espanyol: Roberto, Goni, Alvaro Paredes, Abraham Pinter, Jose Mari, Oriol, Apoño, Montanes, Postiga////Zaragoza: Alvarez, Raul, Victor Moreno, Capdevila; Verdú, Lopez, Albin, Gomez Wakaso Alvaro
    • 9' Javi Lopez deemed to be guilty of fouling Francisco Montanes. No sign of a goal coming in this one so far.
    • 7' Edu Oriol is brought crashing to the deck by Javi Lopez.
    • 5' Javi Lopez decides to try his luck from outside of the visiting box, but sees a shot spin wide of goal. Decent play by Hector Moreno.
    • 3' Raul Goni sends Wakaso tumbling to the deck, and that will be a free-kick to the home team.
    • 2' Adam Pinter earns a free-kick after being brought down by visiting defender Alvaro.
    • 1' We are off and running in the first half of this match.
    • 19.55 Good evening and welcome to LIVE comments from the Espanyol v Real Zaragoza match. Real Sociedad were 2-1 winners over Celta Vigo earlier this evening.
