The situation

Since training ended last Friday, around noon, and until his return to work, in which the players had to be present in time to start a session this Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Ciudad Deportiva Dani Jarque, he has had practically four days the first team of Espanyol to experience a real break . A mental reset that should allow them to face the already crucial match this coming Sunday at 2:00 p.m., at the RCDE Stadium, against Valencia with renewed sensations. The parakeet footballers have had time to disconnect from the bad league start , worse in points –only four in the first six days– than in sensations and confidence in Diego Martínez’s model , to the point that most have taken the opportunity to put ground of through and to do tourism in other cities of the Spanish geography and even abroad . Even the coach, little given to public affairs, took advantage of Sunday to appear unexpectedly at the Cigronada , an already mythical celebration of the Pericos de Vilassar, along with illustrious people such as Rafa Marañón or former president Dani Sánchez Llibre . 

The details

Those who have not yet appeared at Espanyol’s return to training have been some of the internationals available to the team, eight in total, such as Leandro Cabrera, Luca Koleosho or Wassim Keddari Simo , because they still had commitments to play this Tuesday. Among the injured in recent times, everything indicates that the one who has the most hope of recovering in time to enter the squad against Valencia, at least to be on the bench from the start, is a José Carlos Lazo who has at least a couple of weeks exercising on the grass, albeit outside the group. The return of Óscar Gil, Rubén Sánchez and obviously Adrià Pedrosa seems perhaps too premature . We will have to keep an eye on the next few days.
