The finishing day of Spanish La Liga starts today with the game between Granada and Espanyol. The hosts have already been relegated to Segunda Division, while the visitors sit at the first half of the table, having lost any chance for a European ticket. The Andalusians were disappointing at the whole of the current season and the decision to substitute Lucas Alcaraz with Tony Adams at the bench did not have any positive impact. Granada have lost the 11 out of 12 last league games, while they count 6/6 defeats with Adams as coach. Espanyol come from the 0-1 home defeat to Valencia and ran a modest 1-1-3 record at their last five league games. The Catalans want the win tonight, in order to reach seven away wins at the single season for the first time after the 1998-99 season.
Adams is going to reshuffle his defensive line, as left backs Gaston Silva and Hector return to action, while right bacj Foulquier is out suspended. Espanyol’s newest absence is that of midfielder Fuego, who suffers from fever. On the contrary, winger Piatti is available (he lost the match against Valencia due to the terms of his loan).
