Espanyol to visit Hillsborough

10 July 2019

Sheffield Wednesday will host La Liga side RCD Espanyol in a pre-season friendly this summer.

The four-time Copa del Rey winners will visit Hillsborough on Sunday 28 July for a 3.00pm kick-off.

The warm-up fixture with the Periquitos will be Wednesday’s only pre-season outing on home soil ahead of the Championship curtain-raiser at Reading on Saturday 3 August.

Espanyol finished seventh in the Spanish top flight in 2018/19 and as a result, will enter the Europa League at the second qualifying round stage.

The club recently appointed David Gallego as head coach, who has been on the management staff since 2013, taking charge of the youth team, reserves – Espanyol B - and now the seniors.

In terms of club honours, Espanyol most recently triumphed in the Copa del Rey in 2005/06 and gained qualification for the 2006/07 UEFA Cup as a result, where they finished as runners up after losing on penalties in the final to Sevilla.

Ticket details will be confirmed in due course.
