The RCD Espanyol lost in the Camp Nou against the FC Barcelona and remained mathematically descended to Second Division. It is the fifth descent of the blanquiazules
This Wednesday, the FC Barcelona defeated to the RCD Espanyol to follow presionando to the Real Madrid, expecting a miraculoso prick of the group of Zinedine Zidane to be able to apurar the options to raise the title. But also it consummated the descent of the group blanquiazul to Second Division of mathematical way, something that the 'pericos' only had been able to avoid with a victory.
In this way, the RCD Espanyol certified the fifth descent of his history to Second Division, after having lost the category also in the seasons 62-63, 69-70, 89-90 and 93-94. It did 27 years that the team perico did not consummate the drama to go down and in this course, this fact already is a reality. A campaign to forget in the history of the club blanquiazul that arrived just after a season to dream in which the team put in Europe League.
It does a year, the RCD Espanyol finished the campaign ilusionado, after having classified for the Europe League doing a big paper in LaLiga Santander. Nevertheless, in summer lost several key pieces, standing out especially to Rubi (the trainer, that fichó by the Real Betis), Borja Churches (the goleador, that also fichó by the Andalusian team) and Mario Beautiful (the leader of the defence espanyolista, that went to the Athletic of Madrid).
The sportive direction headed precisely by the current technician, Rufete, failed estrepitosamente with the replacements: Jonathan Calleri was not neither the shadow of Borja Churches, Fernando Calero could not erase the footprint that left Mario Beautiful and, like technician, the elected was David Galician. But until four trainers went through the bench blanquiazul this season (Pablo Machín, Abelardo Fernández, Rufete and the own David Galician) without success.
From principle of season, the team paid expensive the fact of have not spent in good signings the almost 60 million euros that obtained by Borja Churches and Mario Beautiful. Of haste, running and already in a delicate situation, arrived in winter Leandro Cabrera, Adrián Embarba and Raúl of Tomás, but could not buoy a ship that sank from the beginning.
The RCD Espanyol will look for to go up
After the descent, touches to look already to the future. The RCD Espanyol will have to put all his obstinacy in recovering the category the before possible, and for this will have to conform an important and expert staff in playing in the category of silver. With the mix of the experience of the players that remain and of the talent of the inagotable quarry perica, expects that the team blanquiazul was aspiring to go up from the beginning. In the meantime, LaLiga will have remained without the derbi Barcelonan.
