Sheffield Wednesday add home friendly with Spanish club Espanyol to pre-season schedule
Sheffield Wednesday will round off their pre-season programme with a home friendly against Spanish team Espanyol.
Steve Bruce's men will welcome the La Liga side to Hillsborough on Sunday, July 28, kick-off 3pm.
Four-time Copa del Rey winners Espanyol finished seventh in Spain's top-flight last term. Due to Europa League commitments, they recently withdraw from a proposed pre-season clash with French giants Paris Saint-Germain.
The warm-up fixture with the Periquitos will be Wednesday’s only pre-season outing on home soil ahead of the Championship opener with Reading on Saturday August 3.
The Owls signed off their 10-day warm-weather training camp in Portugal with a 2-0 victory over Shrewsbury Town last night. Strikers Lucas Joao and Sam Winnall registered to help Wednesday overcome the Shrews in a practice match.
Next up for Wednesday are friendlies with Lincoln City and Stocksbridge where Bruce will send split teams
