Luzern reached the third round of the qualifiers after eliminating Ki Klaksvik from the Faroe Islands. The Swiss side achieved two 1-0 wins over Ki, although there were expectations for wins with much bigger margin. But a win is a win, so the most important thing is that Luzern successfully qualified for the third round. But now, of course, they will have a much bigger fish to fry against the La Liga member Espanyol.

In the Swiss Super League Luzern started the new season in a little bit shaky way. From three games played, Thomas Haberli’s team have one win, one draw and one defeat. The club is currently 5th in the standings with 4 points won. In their last league game Luzern visited Servette, but suffered a 0-1 defeat.

Espanyol started their Europa League campaign from the second qualifying round, facing Iceland’s Stjarnan. Just as it was expected, Los Pericos achieved two wins and didn’t have any trouble to progress. In the first leg in Barcelona Espanyol crushed its opponent with 4-0, while in the second leg the Catalans clinched another win – this time with 3-1. Adria Pedrosa, Borja Iglesisas and Facundo Ferreyra scored for the visiting team.

La Liga is still about to begin and these are the only official Espanyol games since the beginning of the season. Because of this, it’s still too early to say what’s the team level at the moment. Of course, they enter this clash against Luzern in the position of a strong favourite.
