Baena: Home has to be a fortress

Espanyol midfielder Raul Baena has insisted that they need to turn Estadi Cornella-El Prat into 'a fortress'.

The Periquitos have won six of their 13 home games this season, including a 3-2 victory over Levante on Saturday evening.

And the 23-year-old has claimed that the support of the fans and commitment on the pitch will see them rise up the table.

“We know we have to make Cornella-El Prat into a fortress,” he told Sport. “Teams can't come here and take points away from us.

“We have to be 100 per cent.

“That was shown yesterday though, I think. They had more possession, but we played with patience and found holes in their defence.”
