GEF Vs ESL Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Bottom placed Espanyol look to spring a surprise on a regressing Getafe outfit.
Had this encounter been contested a couple of days back, this would have been a foregone result in favour of Getafe. And while the tie is still heavily in the home side’s balance, Espanyol’s win at the weekend sees them force their way into the door today.
Winless in four encounters and sitting 6 points away from safety when La Liga 2019-20 recommenced, nobody grace Espanyol any chance of survival. However, the side was able to turn that entire narrative around on its head with a stunning 2-0 win over Deportivo Alaves, a result which keeps them alive and kicking in the league.
With everyone around them losing, the result was a massive boost to Espanyol’s aspirations of clawing their way out of the bottom 3 this season. Elsewhere, Getafe’s ambitions of securing a spot in next season’s Champions League was dealt yet another calamitous blow with the side’s 2-1 defeat to Granada now leaving them winless without a win in two outings.
Althouhg both the sides endured opposing results the last time around, those results will hardly have any bearing on the imminent fixture. This will be a straightforward win for the home, one where their designs of making it into the top 4 are rekindled.

GEF Vs ESL Dream11 Picks
Diego Lopez from Espanyol will be featuring in our Dream 11 tie as the goal-keeper for this one. The player was responsible for the team’s cleansheet the last time around, a responsible and well versed showing which saw him break the rut for his team.
This has been a season where Getafe have reaped the rewards of their astute backline. One of the most endearing backlines, the side has let in a mere 27 goals all season long, a figure which has seen them flawlessly make massive strides in the league.
Where they have let in just 27 goals, Espanyol on the other hand have been dreary in attack, scoring on a frugal 25 outings. It’s a discourse which emotes heavily towards a cleansheet for the home side, one which sees us earmark the side’s entire defence for the outing.
We have all of Mathias Olivera, Dakonam Djene, Erick Cabaco and Allan Nyom be instilled in our outfit owing to the aforementioned narrative.
Scoring for Espanyol in the foregone encounter, Adrian Embarba makes for a must pick from the team. He has the three assists to go with that goal, numbers which have seen him spearhead his side’s attacking ambit this season.
He’s partnered by Marc Roca while from the home side we’ll be dwelling in the services of the falir filled Marc Cucurella who has piled on the 5 assists for the side this season.
Up infront of one of the worst defensive units, Getafe are going to pile on the goal today. It only made it prudent of us to opt for this partnership from the side, one which will gut a tined Espanyol side that has shipped in the 46 goals this season.
Top scorer with the 10 goals, Angel Rodriguez will become the first name to be inducted into our Dream 11 contingent with 8 goal striker Jaime Mata being his partner. Elsewhere, Espanyol will also see their leading scorer make a foray into our side in the identity of Wu Lei who has scored on four occasions.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With 8 goals, Mata captains our side while Rodriguez is our vice-captain.
