SEV Vs ESL Dream11 Team, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Crumbling Sevilla takes on a tricky Espanyol outfit.
They might be tottering in last place in La Liga but the last month has seen Espanyol show that they are not yet done with the season. With a couple of wins and draws speckled in between them, the club has emoted towards some kind of a fight in a bid to retain its La Liga status as we approach the final months in the league.
Their 1-0 win over RCD Mallorca the last time around was the side’s fourth unbeaten result in its last five bygone encounters to see them cut down the deficit separating them and 17th spot to just three points. Girt, gustiness and vigour is brimming in the side at the moment with the squad clearly in the mood to finally set its house in order.
And with Sevilla waning in form at the moment, Espanyol will be quietly confident of coming out unblemished from the day’s fixture. The2-1 defeat to Celta Vigo last weekend was Sevilla’s fourth winless result in five fixtures, baffling form which has seen them plummet down to fifth position in the league standings.
This will be a closely contested affair with the finest of margins coming into place to determine which side walks away with the full points from this one. We envision Sevilla having just about enough in their repertoire of skill set to pull off the barest of wins given Espanyol’s wavering defence.
Probable Playing 11
- Oliver Torres and Carrico are both sidelined for the home unit owing to their ongoing injury issues.

SEV Vs ESL Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Diego Lopez will be our side’s goal-keeper for the upcoming encounter. He’s been the talisman of his side’s revival, massively punching above his weight with pleasing to the eye displays to act as the true watchdog of his side’s goal.
SEV Vs ESL Dream11 Defenders
Although the breeze has clearly drifted against Sevilla at the moment with the side putting in languishing defensive displays, they are still the likelier of the two sides to emerge with a cleansheet in this fixture. There is no disguising the fact that Espanyol have managed to score a mere 19 times this season, numbers which have been played their part in the side battling relegation.
It sees us move in with the duo of Diego Carlos, Jules Kounde and Sergio Reguilon from the unit with the trio offering unstinted support to the side in their backline.
SEV Vs ESL Dream11 Midfielders
We have decided to get in a trio of picks from Espanyol over here. Across their last five fixtures, the one thing which has seen the side revive its tottering campaign, it’s been their vastly improved attacking displays, resplendent displays which have helped bridge the gap and compensate for the side’s abject defensive showings.
And the trivalent of Sergi Darder, Adrain Embarba and David Lopez have all played their role in the side invigorating their campaign with goals and assists at crucial junctures to see us indulge in the services of the players. Elsewhere, it’s just the one pick from the other side of the component with Fernando Francisco Reges coming in for us.
SEV Vs ESL Dream11 Strikers
Sevilla’s leading scorer with the 6 goals and one kitty, Lucas Ocampos was always going to be a must have pick for us for this encounter. He’s paired alongside Youssef En-Nesyri who has piled on the five goals and two assists in his artillery while from the other side of the slot, Raul de Tomas tops their goal scoring ranks with 4 goals to wrap up our docket.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Ocampos will captain our side given the opposition’s harrowing defence while Youssef comes in as the vice-captain.
