Discovering Espresso for Android: Espresso 2.0 and 'Class ref in pre-verified class resolved to unexpected implementation' error

This time I would like to share with you solution for 'Class ref in pre-verified class resolved to unexpected implementation' issue I got while I was testing my multi-module project. Espresso tests were failing with below issue when I wanted to operate on RecyclerView from com.android.support:appcompat-v7. In my case RecyclerView dependency was defined not in the core-app module (the core module of the app) but in the other one which is set as a library.

And again solution is similar to one that is posted in my previous post - I have added code below into my core-app module:
configurations {
    androidTestCompile.exclude group: 'com.android.support', module: 'recyclerview-v7'
}
Hope you haven't spent a lot of time looking for the solution :)
