Getafe, the break between Machín and Gallego

Despite having improved the sensations and the game, the current Espanyol coach matches the average points of his predecessor, only one in five.


The arrival of Getafe in Cornellà-El Prat is not only a sort of final in November for Espanyol, but also for a Pablo Machín who, despite significantly improving the sensations offered by the team's game, has not increased the average results offered by his predecessor, David Gallego.

In the last five days of LaLiga, which Machín has been in charge, Espanyol has added only 20 percent of the points, three out of the 15 that were at stake, which entails even less than the 20.83 Gallego accumulated during the first eight games, until his dismissal. The coach of Súria also signed a single victory and up to five defeats, but also started two draws. With that equality in performance between the two preparers, it is not surprising that Espanyol continues in the same position, eighteenth, than after the eighth date of the championship, although the permanence has moved away at two points, from three to five .

Gallego lost to Sevilla (0-2), Granada (0-3), Real Sociedad (1-3), Valladolid (0-2) and Mallorca (2-0), while home away against Alavés (0-0 ) and Celta de Vigo (1-1) and defeated Eibar in Ipurua (1-2). Meanwhile, Machín debuted with a home defeat against Villarreal (0-1), won at the Ciutat de València al Levante (0-1) and, since then, has been chained three losses, against Athletic Club (3-0 ), Valencia (1-2) and Atlético de Madrid (3-1) .

Even in the Europa League the baggage is even. Although Machín counts by victories the two meetings of the group stage, both against Ludogorets (0-1 and 6-0) and Gallego tied against Ferencvaros (1-1) and defeated CSKA of Moscow (0-1) , the Catalan coach came from completing a meritorious blank set of victories in the qualifying rounds, with 16 goals in favor and only two against.
