Melendo and Lluís, absent against Fuenlabrada due to COVID-19

The midfielder was left out of the list as well as the central and both confirmed in their networks that they are the positives. Pol Lozano, novelty.


A hour and a half before the match against Fuenlabrada starts, Vicente Moreno, Espanyol coach, has provided the squad list in which there are notable absences. Apart from Keidi Bare, who returned today from playing with Albania, and Miguelón, injured, Óscar Melendo and Lluís López are the most notable absences, especially the midfielder, who was being a key player in the last few days in the offensive scheme of Espanyol.

The Parakeet club had already communicated on Wednesday, and confirmed this same Thursday morning, that there were two players who would cause loss because of having been positive for COVID-19. The players themselves have published different messages on their networks in relation to this, as Melendo: "The PCR tests have confirmed my positive. From the first moment I am at home, confined and following the sanitary guidelines (...) We are well and without symptoms and today I will be one more cheering," he says.

Yes, the other three internationals who have barely been able to train with the group in the last ten days have entered the list and who, obviously, are substitutes. They are Adrià Pedrosa, Javi Puado and Matías Vargas, who could have a chance in the second half depending on how the match unfolds.

The summoned list includes Espanyol B players and is made up of Oier Olazábal, Adrià Pedrosa, Leandro Cabrera, Fernando Calero, Wu Lei, Fran Mérida, Puado, Sergi Darder, Raúl de Tomás, Diego López, David López, Dídac Vilà, Nany Dimata, Álvaro Vadillo, Vargas, Adrián Embarba, Pol Lozano, Óscar Gil, Ricard Pujol, Nico Melamed, Joan García and Omar El Hilali. One of the novelties is the presence of Lozano in midfield after overcoming an injury that had left him out since last March 10, when he was injured against Oviedo.
