Espanyol seeks to heal in the heat of the hobby - SPANISH FOOTBALL 1

This Thursday Espanyol has a rare but good opportunity to make the hobby believe again, to re-engage it. Before the Wolverhampton, and despite the fact that the 16-year-grand-won Europa League is very face-faced to the English (4-0 in the first leg), they can redeem themselves from the last two games and get that Cornellà good entry in Sunday’s important match at 4 p.m. against the Atletico Madrid.

From the club they have launched a campaign of popular prices ranging, for members and subscribers, from 5 (in goals and corner) 10 (in grandstand) to 20 euros (in presidential grandstand). The offer will be valid until this Friday and each member can withdraw up to two tickets. They can be bought online, at the Placa Espanya (from 10h to 14h and from 16h to 20h) or at the La Rambla (from 10h to 21h).

The arrival of Abelardo managed to revitalize the team and also the costume-hobby bond. Against the Barça they got a valuable draw in front of 33,562 people, the highest entry of the season. In front of the Athletic Club, another draw, Cornell were 27,542 fans. And the third was defeated, before the Mallorca two days ago, when Espanyol got the first home win of the season and did so in front of 32,084 souls.

After a disastrous first round in which the public was not rewarded for their support in the form of points, Abelardo’s arrival changed the landscape. This Thursday has a procedure ahead of it that should leave the best feelings because another goal would dent the morale of footballers, and on Sunday a powerful visit that, as he said Diego Lopez in press conference on Tuesday, the opponent must not care because the important thing, going to five points of salvation and with thirteen days ahead, are only the three points.

In the speech, both of the players and the technician, we are increasingly listening to the formula that salvation passes through the house, as well as trying to add in the visits. Beyond the matches against Wolverhampton and Atlético, the RCDE Stadium will pass the Alava, Lift, Real
Madrid, Leganés, Eibar And Celtic. Some of them direct rivals for not going down to Second.
