La Liga result – Espanyol defeat Las Palmas in seven-goal thriller

​Espanyol 4 – 3 Las Palmas

Espanyol twice relinquished leads and still beat Las Palmas 4-3 in the Spanish league on Friday, keeping alive its hopes of qualifying for the Europa League next season.

The home victory left Espanyol in ninth place, six points behind sixth-place Villarreal, the last team in position to qualify for European competition next season.

Espanyol scored through David Lopez in the first minute and Gerard Moreno just before halftime but failed to hold on to the lead as Mauricio Lemos twice equalized for the visitors.

Pablo Piatti put Espanyol ahead again by converting a penalty kick, and Jose Manuel Jurado added an insurance goal in the 74th.
