Calleri reappears against Ávila in a clash for warriors

Espanyol, unknown in Europe, needs to reach once his first win at Cornellà so as not to fall apart against an Osasuna with doubts in the goal.


Ezequiel Ávila was 17 years old, even with the maturity of those who spent a hard childhood, when he tried in Espanyol. Unsuccessfully. Like the one that seemed to accompany him when he left football, again among family problems, to devote himself to masonry. Until he was rescued by San Lorenzo de Almagro, Huesca de Rubi and, now Osasuna. The 'Chimy' arrives in Cornellà, which one day could be his home, to personify with another of his nicknames what this party represents: a clash of 'warriors'.

Especially it is, of course, for a Espanyol anchored in the relegation zone, so a victory (which would be the first at home) seems already forced after 1-1 of last day against Getafe and in the anteroom of the visit, in six days, to Real Madrid. Machín will finally have Pablo Piatti, and from the outset with a compatriot from both the extreme and the 'Chimy', Jonathan Calleri, who once recovered from his biceps injury from a long month of convalescence is called to restore the goal of the parakeets, only eight in 14 days, which seems directly lost beyond the border in a Europa League whose feelings are bound to matter to LaLiga if they do not want to sink.

And without borders, without limits in a classification that places it closer to the high zone than the descent, Osasuna appears, antithesis of Espanyol as a local (until last week, it chained 31 games undefeated in El Sadar), but that at home He has not won since the first day in Leganés. Arrasate is planted in Cornellà with three goalkeepers, not because of an ultra-defensive tactics but because Sergio Herrera, the owner, has problems. As you will have them, and fat, Espanyol today in case you do not add your first win at home.
