Cold, rain, light-eined atmosphere in a Camp d’Etransgaming.orgs who traveled back in time and a soporific first part were the setting of a disaster of the Espanyol he saved Wu Lei with what you’d better do, run into space. The Chinese man fought a Cup qualifier that showed an uncomfortable parakeet team again and which also poured a reflection on the youngsters.
Footballers grow from discomfort and from overcoming difficult situations. What Toni Nadal defines as the character, which must be launted on a daily basis. A Cup match in Lleida it was a good opportunity to Lozano, Pedrosa, Lluís or Pipa, players who barely count in LaLiga, who live their first experience in the top flight and they should demonstrate in this type of matches that they want to shine in bigger scenarios. It was curious that the most motivated player in the Espanyol in the horrific first half was Javi Lopez, 33-year-old captain with more than 250 official matches with the parakeet team. Young people would do well to trace their spirit.
An old spirit was breathed into the stands, with chants more typical of the 90s. An ilerdense hobby that chanted “Second, Second” and “whore Spain, whore Espanyol“, who showed his sympathy for the Barça and his “hate” Espanyol. A hostile atmosphere but with few speakers gave way to a second part in which the Lleida, who will have to play against the Sabadell on Saturday (the former Juvenal parakeet was in the stands being in the technical staff of the leader of Second B Group III), he took a step back and the team of Machín controlled the encounter better.
The Lleida, who yesterday played with up to two Second Catalan footballers (including the Chinese Liu Yang), fought to the end and proved that right now the Espanyol is a team that finds an odyssey to win a match: 43 days ago the victory was not achieved, that 6-0 that is already forgotten before the Ludogorets in the Europa League.
Football is a state of mind and winning is a habit. And the parakeets who must do at least ten more encounters to save themselves had been forgotten. On Sunday, in Leganés, there is no other option to avoid a year-end funeral.
