Espanyol went into Monday’s fixture having netted just one goal in their last four fixtures in all competitions.
They started the clash brightly, though, and Mario Hermoso drew a smart save from Betis goalkeeper Antonio Adan having gone for goal from the halfway line, per Spanish football writer Samuel Marsden:
Mario Hermoso just almost scored from his own half for Espanyol. Adan just got back to tip it over. Cracking effort.
The hosts looked defensively solid in the opening 45 minutes and barely conceded an attempt, while Gerard forced another good save from Adan when he met a corner with a powerful header midway through the half.
Espanyol got their reward for some excellent play 10 minutes after the break, 25-year-old Gerard bringing down Pablo Piatti’s ball on his chest before finishing brilliantly from inside the box to put his side ahead. 
Per football writer Simon Harrison, it was just reward for the home side following an efficient performance in the first 55 minutes:
Fourth league goal of the season for Gerard Moreno. Espanyol brilliant defensively in the first half, then he takes his chance emphatically.
Sloppy play late on risked Espanyol throwing away their lead, and Pau Lopez was forced into a fine save three minutes from time by Sergio Leon.
They held out, though, to earn their first league win since September.
Loic Remy put Las Palmas ahead after just seven minutes against Depor having been fed by Jonathan Viera.
However, Celso Borges headed home either side of half-time to put the visitors ahead before Lucas Perez sealed the points from the penalty spot 21 minutes from time after Fede Cartabia was fouled in the area.
