Espanyol are one of the oldest clubs in the division. Founded just after the turn of the century on the 28th October 1900. They have a fierce rivalry with their Catalonian neighbours FC Barcelona. However despite it being the most played local derby in the history of La Liga, it is also the most unbalanced, with Barcelona overwhelmingly dominant.
However one cannot look at these results as a gauge of Espanyol's success. Espanyol may not be as successful as their rivals Barca but the club has had some success since they were formed. They can claim 4 Copa Del Rey's, 3 La Liga titles and 2 Uefa cups.
Despite being in the shadows of their City neighbours this club should not be underestimated. More than a few clubs down the years have fallen subject to heavy Espanyol defeats and they are a club with a squad of good players. Espanyol tickets are available on Football Ticket Pad and can be bought alongside Barcelona tickets so that if you are visiting the city of Barcelona you can double the action and watch both teams play in one weekend!
