Our opponent today, RCD Espanyol, is one of our most illustrious visitors, not in vain we have faced them in more than 190 official matches.
With tonight’s match there will be 84 league matches played between the two teams in Bilbao. Note that on February 17th, 1929, in the first league match played in the history of San Mames, our opponent was the RCD Espanyol.
Curiously enough, the RCD Espanyol was also our first opponent in the official match, in a distant 13th May 1902, in the Coronation Cup.
The last clash between the two teams in the Cathedral in this competition, the Cup, was a February 11th, 2015, first leg semi-final that ended with a tie to 1 goal.
Precisely objects from this match will be presented in the presidential box: the shirt of Sergio Garcia, captain of the periquitos, and the ball of the match, signed by the goalscorer Aduriz who that day celebrated his 34th birthday.
In addition, these objects will be accompanied by a banner of the RCD Espanyol of 1969 given half a century ago to our Club.
