The beginning of the year is not traditionally comfortable for FC Barcelona, which will try to break this tradition in 2020 against RCD Espanyol
The FC Barcelona does not accustom to have eases every time that initiates a new year. The parties contested just after celebrating the Nochevieja are used to to be especially uncomfortable for the culés and like this move it the results of the last decade, in which the team blaugrana great seven victories (only two consecutive), four ties and a defeat.
From the year 2008, the FC Barcelona achieved to defeat to the Mallorca (0-2 and 3-1), empató against the Real Valladolid (1-1), went out victorious in front of the Raise (2-1), punctured with the Espanyol (1-1), defeated to the group perico a year later (4-0), imposed to the Elche (4-0), fell against the Real Sociedad (1-0, in a party that supposed a before and an afterwards with Luis Enrique), empató again in front of the Espanyol (0-0), the same that with the Villarreal (1-1), and defeated to the Raise (3-0) and to the Getafe (1-2) in the two last years.
To inaugurate the year 2020, the FC Barcelona neither will have a first simple meeting, since it will measure to the Espanyol in a new edition of the derbi Barcelonan in the RCDE Stadium. In spite of that the team blanquiazul will arrive like colista of First Division, the parties in Cornellà-The Prat are used to to be tremendously hard, so much by the attitude of the footballers pericos as by the one of the fans.
The stadium espanyolista is faithful in the derbis and is used to to convert the terracings in a boiler against the players of the FC Barcelona, that are not having precisely his best season like visitors. The culés will arrive like leaders and the pericos like the worst local team of the category, accumulating seven defeats home, two ties and without having been able to première his pigeonhole of victories.
The Espanyol, with new trainer to receive to the Barça
In the first 18 days of LaLiga Santander, the RCD Espanyol only has achieved to take out 10 points that have not taken him out of the 'farolillo red'. By the bench perico already have happened two trainers: David Galician, that only added five points in the eight first days, and Pablo Machín, that was destituido recently for obtaining still worse results (five points in ten parties).
The Espanyol, therefore, will première technical in the derbi against the FC Barcelona and, to day of today, Abelardo is the one who has all the numbers to be the elected. Several media advanced that the ex player culé would be the one who would seat in the bench, by what will be he the one who try to go out to the rescue of a team that, for the moment, drifts.
