Espanyol vs Athletic Club match preview

It’s been a disappointing week for both, so can either claim three precious points in Catalonia?

Espanyol sacked Head Coach Diego Martínez on Monday with Luis García, who made 257 appearances for the club, taking over.

This came about as Blanquiazules dropped into the relegation zone last weekend, enduring a fourth successive defeat, beaten 2-1 by local-rivals Girona.

Espanyol suffered a surprise relegation in 2020 and will have to battle if they’re to avoid a similar fate this year too.

Athletic Club Bilbao meanwhile saw their Copa del Rey hopes go up in flames on Tuesday night.

1-0 down from the first leg against Osasuna, Athletic looked like overturning this deficit when Iñaki Williams levelled up the score on aggregate in the first half.

However, the match at San Mamés went into extra time and, just as everyone was preparing for penalties, Osasuna snatched the win right at the end.

The Lions 39-year wait for Copa del Rey success will go on, with Ernesto Valverde’s team now needing to qualify for Europe via La Liga.

Having won just one of their last six, Athletic have dropped to seventh, which would secure them Europa Conference League football, unless Osasuna spring a major surprise in the Copa final.

Nevertheless, with Rayo, Osasuna themselves and others just behind, Athletic need points to remain in the top seven.

All in all, this is a crucial clash for both at RCDE Stadium.
