Javier Aguirre has conceded that Espanyol are in a ‘risky situation’ after a poor run of results.
The Periquitos face Sevilla on Sunday having picked up just four points out of a possible 21 recently.
And the Mexican Coach has admitted that they have to get back to winning ways against the Rojiblancos.
“We are in a risky situation,” he told a Press conference. “Our good start to the season has been diluted somewhat.
“It is fundamental to our aspirations to beat Sevilla.
“It may be early in the season, but I think this match is vital for us.
“I think we’ve been playing well, but we have to start taking our chances.”
