Estadi Cornella-El Prat: Home of Espanyol(credit: Wikipedia
Espanyol striker Dani Osvaldo has not given up on the club’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League.
Periquitos are currently 10 points off fourth-placed Villarreal, who occupy the final spot, having lost six of their last seven games during the absence of the forward.
But Osvaldo, who will make his return from injury against Deportivo La Coruna tonight, insists they can still earn a place among the elite of European club football.
He said: “I want to play in the Champions League with Espanyol and I hope that after 38 games we are in a position to be able to do so.”
However, Osvaldo warned: “I feel good and I'm ready to play two games in a week, but I'm not the team's saviour.”
While Espanyol head into this game on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Levante, Deportivo La Coruna recorded a 2-1 victory over Real Sociedad.
Watch Espanyol v Deportivo La Coruna live at 365, kicking off at 16.00 GMT.
