Espanyol can be a Second team next Monday

Even those who tried to resist, to deny reality, know that Espanyol's descent after 26 uninterrupted seasons in the First Division is inevitable. The question now is to calculate when can it happen. In the worst case, the parakeet set can go down to Second next Monday, July 6th.

The descent would be mathematical in the event that the team led by Francisco Joaquín Pérez Rufete miss Sunday at five in the afternoon against Leganes, at the RCDE Stadium, and win your matches all direct rivals that mark the zone of permanence. That is, that the Celtic be imposed on Betis and the Alaves in Valladolid, both on Saturday, and that the Eibar Also leave with three points from Sánchez Pizjuán, against Sevilla, on Monday.

In case of tie between parakeets and cucumbers, neither would drop in category on this next day, since Espanyol lacks to face Celta in the last day (and mathematically it could equal him to points), while Leganés has one more point, and would be 11 with 12 remaining.

So the next scenario in which Espanyol's descent could take place would be the derby next Wednesday, July 8, on his visit to the Camp Nou to face his eternal rival, Barcelona. Currently, the parakeets close the classification with 24 points, one from Alavés, ten from Celta and 11 from Alavés and Eibar.
