For the first time since the championship restarted, Abelardo Fernández may have all available template to measure the Real Madrid this Sunday (22:00) with the only doubt of Dídac Vilà, go down for inconvenience against Betis, and if there is any last minute setback. Leandro Cabrera and Bernardo Espinosa, sanctioned one and two games respectively, return to the team, while Raúl de Tomás, who already played 35 minutes in Seville, could be a starter again.

With all this, Abelardo could choose to Javi López on the right. In all these encounters the right has been alternating with Pipa. Adrià Pedrosa would repeat on the left if Dídac does not recover at the end, while Bernardo and Cabrera will return to the axis of defense. David López and Marc Roca fthe couple of midfielders, with Adrián Embarba and Sergi Darder on the sides. Jonathan Calleri and Raúl de Tomás they would form the couple of attackers.

After ten games in a row without a victory, Espanyol beat Real Madrid two seasons ago during their visit to RCDE Stadium 1-0with so much of Gerard Moreno in the last minute of the game. One of the best memories in the parakeet stadium. In such a critical situation, there is no other option for Espanyol if they want to continue aspiring to salvation.
