The Espanyol 2002-04 season was a challenging period for the club, as they struggled to maintain consistency in La Liga.
Managed by Javier Clemente, Espanyol finished the 2002-03 season in 14th place, narrowly avoiding relegation to the second division. The following season, they finished in 11th place, but were still some way off the European qualification places.
Espanyol's performances in the Copa del Rey were more impressive, as they reached the final in both seasons. In 2003, they faced Real Madrid in the final, but lost 1-0 to a goal from Ronaldo. The following year, they faced Zaragoza in the final and lost again, this time on penalties.
Despite their lack of success in the league, Espanyol had some talented players during this period, including strikers Maxi Rodriguez and Walter Pandiani, who both scored consistently for the club.
Off the pitch, Espanyol faced financial difficulties during this period, with a high level of debt and an uncertain ownership structure. However, they managed to maintain their place in La Liga and would go on to enjoy more success in the years to come.
Overall, the Espanyol 2002-04 season was a challenging period for the club, with inconsistent performances in the league and two losses in the Copa del Rey final. However, they had some talented players and managed to maintain their status in La Liga despite financial difficulties.
