Espanyol is already a Second Division team. After the defeat against Barça, their greatest rival in the competition, the parakeet team ascends to the hell of Second. The hope of remaining in the highest competition faded after Luis Suárez’s goal. “If I go out here it is to apologize to our fans for what we are putting them through. And thanks because they have always been with us. We will come back much stronger, because above all there is the feeling we have for this shield,” he said the Spanish player, Javi López.
Defeat at the Camp Nou
One of the historic First Division teams says goodbye to the elite of Spanish and European football. A bad dream that the team and its fans are living. A nightmare to which must be added the humiliation of losing at the Camp Nou. The last Catalan derby, for the moment, exalts Barça and defeats Spanish. Matchday 35 of LaLiga 2019/2020 will remain in the memory of parakeet fans. He needed more than a miracle to save himself from relegation and Luis Suárez’s goal erased any hope for salvation. Four days from the end of the League, the Espanyol needed to win every game to save himself. And last night’s defeat makes things impossible. Despite the relegation, the blue and white team will fight against Eibar, Valencia and Celta to thank the fans for their loyalty.
5 wins, 9 draws and 21 losses
The 2019/2020 season has been catastrophic for the Catalan team. In the 35 games played, he has only achieved five wins and nine draws. 21 defeats that could place him bottom of the First Division for the first time in its history. The parakeet team achieved a magnificent position in the table last season. Then everything was jauja and joy when we finished seventh playing great football. Nothing foreshadowed this outcome at the beginning of the season.
Second team for the fifth time in its history
Espanyol is a Second Division team.The last season in which Espanyol played in the Second Division was the 1993/94 season. On that occasion he achieved a long-awaited promotion obtaining the first position. It is not the first time that this historic team plays in Second. It already did so in the 1962/1963, 1969/1970, 1989/1990 and 1993/94 seasons. In these 26 years playing in Primera, the Spanish has won the King’s Cup twice. The first time was in the 1999/2000 season and the second, in 2005/2006. The Club was founded on October 28, 1900 in by a group of students from the University of Barcelona. One of the peculiarities of Spanish is that despite having 120 years of history, it has never won a LaLiga championship.
