Aguirre looking forward to San Mames

Espanyol boss Javier Aguirre has admitted that his side go into tomorrow's match with Athletic Bilbao full of confidence.

The Periquitos have climbed up to 14th in the table since his arrival last year, and the Mexican has conceded that he is looking forward to the game at San Mames.

“Since I've been here we've played better away from home,” he told reporters. “Our games at Granada, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Real Zaragoza were all good.

“Hopefully we can continue with that level against Athletic Bilbao. I'd like my team to play a fast, intense game like they have been doing, and then we'll see what happens.

“We are well prepared to face Bielsa's side.”
