OSA Vs ESL Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Two regressing units scour for semblance when they meet each other today.
Draws and defeats aren’t going to cut it out for Espanyol this season. The side has failed to rake up wins despite embarking on the final stretch of encounters in the league, persistently hammered down in last place with relegation looming closer with each passing gameweek.
While the side has some impressive showings to account for with a draw against Barcelona and Atletcio Madrid in its kitty, three points have consistently eluded the side. They drew 1-1 with Atletico Madrid the last time around to remain with the solitary win in their last five encounters, a sordid set of results which sees the side facing a five point deficit from salvation this season.
And this is just the opposition a waning Osasuna side would have wanted to take on in one of its worst slumps in the league this season. The side was handed over its second straight and fourth defeat in five matches the last time around with Sevilla getting the better of them in a 3-2 edge of the seat thriller.
Osasuna’s main plight has been curbing sides from scoring past them but come Espanyol and they are up against a side which has failed to string together two meaningful attacking plays in succession. The hosts will be avidly waiting for this fixture, a match where they should finally manage to curtail a horrid set of results for themselves with a win.
