Espanyol ace De La Pena: We want to give Real Madrid a surprise

De La Pena has been out of action for the last matches due to an muscle injury, but could return for the clash with Real Madrid.

“We would like to go there and give them a surprise, because we know that we have the capacity to get a positive result,” he told Marca.

“Ofcourse, it would be a difficult match. They are an excellent rival, especially at home and they are dangerous in all departments.

“They can control the game with or without the ball, they can score goals and defend, they have quality and speed… they have everything.

“But we will approach it just like any other game, although there will be more motivation because we are playing against the champions.”
