From a purely sporting point of view, and after suffering six confirmed positives in COVID-19 (tests were carried out only among those with symptoms, so there could even be some more), Espanyol could hardly compete on equal terms with most rivals, who have not suffered a similar setback (except Valencia and Alavés), since it is not only the time of convalescence, but the subsequent quarantine and, from there, having to resume training practically from scratch. Only time will discover which is the most reasonable solution or, failing that, which one is taken. Between coronaviruses and bombastic statements from the country’s alleged soccer leaders, the reality is that it is naturally unknown whether and when the competition will resume. A sea of doubts that catches even the Spanish, within which there is also a certain dichotomy about which outcome would be the most convenient.On the one hand are the offices, where they have no doubt that, from a financial point of view, what would satisfy is that LaLiga could be completed, since between 25 and 30 percent of the annual income already budgeted depend on it. Also by classification, since the permanence or the descent would be elucidated how it should be: on the playing fields. But that’s where this posture doesn’t exactly match the vision that emerges from the staff, which feels diminished in the current circumstances to have to face 11 decisive days for the future of the club.
