Espanyol’s Borja Iglesias to serve suspension

Espanyol striker Borja Igelssias will miss their key clash away at Athletic Bilbao next Friday night, after collecting his fifth La Liga booking of the 2018-19 season. 

The 26 year-old picked up the caution in their 3-1 home win against Real Valladolid on Saturday, and he will be joined in the stands at San Mames by team mate Darder – who also received his fifth yellow card of the campaign.

Iglesias has been key for Joan Francesc Ferrer's side this season, scoring 10 La Liga goals, as they look to battle against being drawn into a relegation battle in the closing weeks of the season.

The former Real Zaragoza striker has reportedly attracted interest from Premier League sides this season, and if he can continue his goal scoring form between now and the end of the campaign, bids could be forthcoming.
