ESL Vs MLC Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Two agonising sides look to maintain relevance in La Liga.
Embroiled in the relegation battle, when Espanyol and Real Mallorca take to the middle today, this encounter comes bearing with it massive ramifications for either side. A defeat for either would be a potentially damaging one to their chances of survival, a discourse which will spur on either when they square off against each other.
For bottom slumped Espanyol in particular, this is a momentous affair. They have won the lowest number of matches all season at just three, a number which is only befitting of their besmirched 20th spot. And with the side’s mini revival broken the last time around with the 2-1 defeat Granada ending a spree of three unbeaten encounters, the side has reverted back to its vulnerable best.
Elsewhere, Real Mallorca haven’t fared any better this season the club’s rapturous supporters fuming at the brand of football deployed by the club. Sitting in 17th spot, they are clutching at mere straws in a bid to avoid relegation with the side scraping clear of the dreaded bottom three by the smallest margins of goal difference.
When the two take on each other, the first and foremost priority for either side will be to slip to another defeat. It’s a rhetoric which will see either unit approach this clash tenacity, one we envision being a drab affair as either side plays it safe to emerge with the one point apiece on the day.

ESL vs MLC Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Real Mallorca’s goal-keeper, Manolo Reina will be our pick for the man in between the sticks. He’s shown fight and character, two traits which have seen him act as the true watchdog of his side’s goal to pull off some stellar showings off late.
ESL vs MLC Dream11 Defenders
With the two units have strung together a mere 40 goals in between them all season we won’t be massively surprised if this tie ends in a laggard 0-0 draw. At a time of peril, one where the club has scored a mere 18 goals, Espanyol has turned to its defence to help bolster up the side’s showings with the backline reposing the faith put in it with some enduring displays.
And with Real Mallorca having failed to have score in their last couple of encounter, Espanyol will be fancying their chances of a cleansheet today. It sees us move in with a duo of defenders from the side with both Didac Vila and Landro Cabrera earning a spot in our setup. Elsewhere, it’s just the lone pick from the visiting unit with Joan Sastre being brought in by us.
ESL vs MLC Dream11 Midfielders
With the four goals and one assist in his kitty, Dani Rodriguez will the first name to be enshrined in our unit from Real Mallorca for this fixture. The three goals and three assists see us move in for Salvia Sevilla as well along with four goal man Lago Junior as we opt for an entire trio from the side given the paper thin quality of their opposition’s defence.
From the home side meanwhile, we are moving in with the sole pick with two goal man, Sergi Dader being brought in by us.
ESL vs MLC Dream11 Strikers
With three goals, Raul de Tomas is Espanyol’s top scorer this season to make the striker the first name to be snared by us for the affair. He;s pared up by Jonathan Calleri who has tied to do his bit with the one goal and two assists while Real Mallorca’s top scorer with 8 goals and 1 assist, Ante Budimir will be closing our Dream 11 framework for this one.
Captain And Vice-Captain
