The parakeet team went ahead in minute 3, but repeated mistakes and allowed themselves to come back on the fast track (2-1). The Blue and Whites are still winless in 2022.
the derby of Weather in Cornellà next Sunday will arrive with two clubs with antagonistic sensations. The Barça revived with his brilliant victory against Atlético and the Spanish He played again this Monday in another performance that corroborated the bad moment of the parakeets. Four days without winning, with one point out of 12 possible, is the balance of the block of Vincent Moreno, which clicked on Bilbao (2-1) before receiving the azulgranas in a demanding stretch of calendar. The Sevilla and the Villarreal They will be the next opponents on a tough February slope.
Without Thomas Raul, sanctioned for his absurd expulsion against Betis, the parakeet coach opted for In the eyes instead of Loren as a spearhead. The other great novelty was the ownership of vilhena on the left flank, while Embarba he stayed on the bench.
Rotations for the Cup

Far from learning the lesson, Espanyol fell apart again on the fast track. Athletic came back in just 10 minutes thanks to a cross shot Sancet, somewhat validated by the WHERE after being annulled for offside, and a header from Inigo Martinez. The same film from Friday, January 21, the same disaster, the same feeling of inconsistency and fragility that is weighing down the Blue and Whites in a bitter 2022.
The bad feelings have dragged even the goal Diego Lopez. His collection of miracles, which had its peak in the match against Athletic in Cornellà, seems finished. be again earthly goal.

With 2-1, Espanyol went to the changing rooms to reflect. It was of little use. It didn’t help either referee, who could call a penalty for some Balenziaga’s hands. Moreno tried everything with the changes, but there were hardly any options. A missile from Darder deflected by Unai was the only noteworthy thing about a bad-faced Espanyol.
