Espanyol Barcelona will conclude the 2021 International Football Year with a late 2-1 victory over Valencia. The guests reverse the La Liga match from the nineteenth round only in the final stage.
Alderetti brought the hosts back to the seventh point in a row after 51 minutes, but then everything went well: after a foul in the penalty area, Douro sees yellow and red and De Thomas uses the penalty kick to equalize (83).
And as if this were not enough, Boadou secured Espanyol’s victory in the 88th minute. This means that the two teams are at least temporarily neighbors in the table: Valencia are in eighth place with 28 points, and Espanyol are in ninth place with 26 points. But Vllarrean played one game less and could pass the duo with complete success against Levante.
