JIM: This is Valladolid’s CL final

Juan Ignacio Martinez has said Real Valladolid’s game against Espanyol on Saturday is akin to a Champions League final for its importance.

Pucela are currently in the bottom three, although they do have a game in hand on their relegation rivals.

But JIM has told a Press conference that it is the game at home to Espanyol that he believes is most important.

“This is our Champions League final,” Marca reports the Coach as saying.

“It’s not about talking, but actions on the pitch. We are in May and we’re playing for our lives.

“We know the amount of people who depend on us and we can’t fail.

“We are the ones who have to prove to the fans that the team wants to continue in the top flight.”
