With 37 points for Granada, and 36 for Mallorca and Cádiz, in that order, it is clear that a parakeet victory would pave the way for his two old friends. Who has it worse, because he does not depend on himself, he is a Sergio who coincided with the current interim coach of Espanyol, Luis Blanco. First, as players –one was already triumphing in the first team, while the other was in the subsidiary– and, later, on the bench, since Sergio’s time in the First Division coincided with Blanco’s return to the club as Lluís’s assistant Planagumà in the B.

It was tenth with 49 points in the 2014-15 season, in which he returned the illusion with some cup semi-finalsagainst Athletic, and marched twelfth, with 17 points, when in December 2015 he was surprisingly dismissed.

In his second exercise, he was fourteenth with 42 points.

If Blanco’s Espanyol draws or wins in Granada, they will match one of those Mexican recordsin addition to lending a hand to his ex-technicians in the event that they also fulfill their part of the task, win Osasuna-Mallorca and Alavés-Cádiz, respectively. If he loses, it will complicate things, especially for Sergio, and will end a season to forget away from home, with only eight points out of a possible 57. The script is to be written, this Sunday.
