Diego López will live today his sixth duel against Barcelona with the blue and white shirt and in the previous five he has received 14 goals. The last in Cornellà-El Prat, last year, does not keep excessive good memories because Espanyol fell 0-4, Leo Messi scored two goals and is scored a goal in his own door. Diego López will try to leave history behind a Barcelona that is choking him today. In addition to having scored 38 goals, it is the second set against which he has won the most losses (11). Only Madrid has won more times (12). Diego López, who ends the contract at the end of this season and is now free to negotiate with any other team, is focused solely on helping Espanyol seal the salvation. And everything happens to show its best version. Leaving his goal to zero against Barcelona is something that would give him wings at the motivational level and, in addition, catapult his team. Of course, it is a subject that has pending before the Catalans. He has faced in Primera in 17 games and the balance is two wins (with Villarreal and Real Madrid), four draws and 11 losses. And in them he only left his goal zero once. It was with Villarreal, the 2011-12 season (0-0). With the yellow set he wore, but he also had to suffer the greatest culé punishment because that same course suffered a 5-0, on day 2, at Camp Nou. Diego López has a challenge today against Barcelona: leaving his goal to zero. The Espanyol goalkeeper suffers when he faces the Catalans, and that is the team that has scored the most goals in Primera (38). Diego wants to claim, dry Barça, and yesterday, through his Twitter account, he was in charge of putting the spotlight on today’s clash: “Maximum difficulty, total motivation. It’s time to be together. Come on, Espanyol“he said.
