But yes to these heights something is clear The team (and demonstrated it by paying part of the trip eight days ago to Vila-real) is that it is not alone in that arduous task. The last demonstration is located in the formidable, almost historical entry, which was recorded on Saturday with Athletic’s visit to Cornellà-El Prat.More than 7,000 tickets dispatched of a promotion that concerned members and partners, to ensure that they did not fall into rival hands, 27,542 spectators were concentrated in the stadium. A brutal figure that not only It is well above average but it becomes the increased attendance at a match in Cornellà in the last four years I did not have one of the visitors as a visitor Three great classics: Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid.Since May 1, 2016, an entire Olympic cycle (to be exact, 1,364 days), did not attract more inflow an adversary of those considered mortal. And in quotes, it was Sevilla, which on that occasion brought together 27,654 faithful. What is clear with this data is that Espanyol needs to be with water around its neck to reach such capacities. That day the permanence was played, and with his 1-0 win with goal from Felipe Caicedo he reached it virtually, since he left the descent to five points with only two days left. That same course, specifically on March 3, and with the drama even more in the making, the Deportivo’s visit brought together 28,455 spectators.The club also congratulates each other because the schedule for this occasion, on a Saturday at one in the afternoon, is traditionally the most difficult, excluding Friday and the old Mondays. But it is that Espanyol-Athletic surpassed even the 26,568 fans of May 18 against the Royal Society, with Europe as a mission.And it constitutes the second best entry of the last three years, since April 29, 2017, when a derby brought together 31,708 fans. Precisely the best influx since that day is another Espanyol-Barcelona, ​​last January 4, which brought together 33,562. The parakeet, more involved than ever.last_img
