This is the funny promotional video Spanish side Espanyol made as they prepare to face Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Europa League.
The Spanish club made the post for their army of 455,400 online followers promoting their upcoming Europa League Round of 32 match against Wolves set to take place tomorrow (Thursday) at the Molineux Stadium.
The video shows the moment a wolf wearing a bandit eye mask and yellow and white clothes, referring to the colours of the British club, runs from the Molineux Stadium.
The bandit is seen holding a Europa League cup seemingly stealing it before he is stopped by a ruckus as the video is seen shaking.
The bandit looks to the sky as a bright light appears showing the image of a parakeet in the middle of the spotlight, referring to the Spanish club’s mascot.
The light call was an apparent parody to the one Batman receives whenever he is called into action.
The two clubs are set to play tomorrow (Thursday) for their first leg match of the Europa League Round of 32 as Wolves sit eight in the Premier League with 36 points, two behind Manchester United.
Espanyol are having a difficult season as they sit bottom of La Liga with 19 points and are fighting relegation to the Spanish second tier.
