ESL vs MRC Dream11 : Relegation zone clash sees appealing Mallorca and Espanyol clash heads against each other in the day’s opening fixture
The opening seven gameweeks of the 2019-20 La Liga season have been anything but kind to Mallorca and Espanyol. Slumped in the last two places of the league standings, the two have been engulfed be a dismal run of form, one both have never managed to shrug out of to stay planted in the relegation zone spots.
It’s not just their torrid form but rather the relegation places which both the sides occupy which make today’s clash a must win one for either side. What will give both these languishing and lapses riddled outfits massive heart ahead of the imminent fixture is the identity of their opposition with both finally been accorded a chance to take on a level headed side.
With just the one point separating the two outfits as things stand with an extra draw for Espanyol placing them in 17th place, both these sides have reciprocated each other’s seasons. Having won just the one match apiece, Mallorca find themselves yet to register a win in their previous five matches with their most recent encounter ending in a 2-0 defeat to Alaves.
Elsewhere, the 2-0 defeat to Valladolid means that Espanyol have failed to win in the last three gameweeks ever since their 2-1 win to Eibar previously. It’s not just the points but the variety of football doled out by each side which emulates the other with both managing to scramble their way to just four goals while conceding a sorry 12 in the process.

ESL vs MRC Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With both the outfits having allowed themselves to be opened up at will and pounded and peppered with shots aplenty, a cleansheet looks extremely unlikely from today’s match. Our pick of Manolo Reina from Mallorca was done based his acumen as a goal-keeper, one which has augured well for the side to save them from what should have been curtained battering.
ESL vs MRC Dream11 Defenders
When you have conceded 24 goals in between yourselves, its only befitting that your defenders aren’t considered hot property. Both the sides have collapsed completely in the backline, losing their way to allow their side to be pummelled and obliterated, seeing us choose just the three defenders in this facet.
All of our picks were done only based on players who will be cantering their way done the park for their sides as well to judiciously find themselves involved hectically in their side’s attacking sorties as well. This sees us pick up the two fullbacks in the form of Javi Lopez from Espanyol along with their top scorer Adria Pedrosa while from Mallorca we are choosing Joan Sastre for this clash.
ESL vs MRC Dream11 Midfielders
Where the two sides have been lacklustre in defence, they haven’t impressed in attack either with just the 8 goals strung together in between them in 14 matches, the four apiece for either side. It’s been a harrowing showing by them up the park, one which has seen their opponents leave them in anguish but today’s match looks to be just the one where they’ll be allowed to express themselves freely up the park.
This sees us pick up an entire trivalent from Espanyol, beginning with one of their two strikers, Sergi Dader with Victor Sanchez and rightwinger Matias Vargas giving him company for this one. Elsewhere from the opposition we have opted for two of their most enterprising and enigmatic picks in the form of Aleix Febas and Takefusa Kubo.
ESL vs MRC Dream11 Strikers
At a time when the goals have dried up for everyone else, Ante Budimir has kept waging a lone battle for the hosts. His unstinted support to the side’s attacking travails have seen him traverse his way past some delightful goals, seeing him become the outfit’s top scorer as things stand.
He becomes an instant pick for us whilst from the other side we have picked out Jonathan Calleri for this one.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Budimir is being made our captain for today’s pertinent clash whilst Calleri is opted for as the vice-captain.
