Aguirre: No one deserved to win

Javier Aguirre has said that the match between Espanyol and Real Betis was so poor, neither side deserved three points.

It was Betis who did take the victory thanks to a Ruben Castro brace but Aguirre told reporters after the game that he thought both teams were off the pace.

“It was a game of 0-0,” Aguirre said.

“There was no flowing football from either side.”

Aguirre did add that he got his team selection wrong but denied the League defeat came as a result of the midweek exertions against Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey.

“We could have made it 1-0 [through Stuani].

“The small details made the difference.”

Aguirre also wished luck to his Betis counterpart, Gabriel Calderon, and predicted that Betis would put up a strong fight against relegation through the rest of the season.
