Reial Club Deportiu Espanyol de Barcelona, or RCD Espanyol, is one of the Barcelona-based clubs in the Spanish football league system. RCD Espanyol was founded in October 1900 by a student of the University of Barcelona. The club was originally based in the district of Sarria and was originally known as the Sociedad Española de Football. In 1910, the club changed its name to Club Deportivo Español.
RCD Espanyol’s home kit features a shirt with blue and white stripes partnered with blue shorts, while away colors highlight an all-red kit and an all-yellow kit with a blue and white stripe running down the middle of the shirt.
FC Barcelona is considered to as RCD Espanyol’s main rival but also thought to be the most unbalanced due to the former’s dominance in the league. Espanyol only managed to claim a win against Barcelona on three occasions in almost 70 years, with the most recent win happening during the 2008/09 season.
