ESL (Probable 11) –

Lopez (GK), Martin, Duarte, Hermoso, Lopez, Sanchez, Roca, Darder, Garcia, Moreno, Baptistao


ATH (Probable 11) –

Herrerin (GK), Lekue, Nunez, Laporte, Saborit, Iturraspe, Rico, Williams, Garcia, Susaeta, Aduriz




  • David Lopez and Javi Fuego both miss out due to suspension for the home side.
  • Oscar Duarte should be fit enough to start at centre-back ahead of Naldo.
  • Marc Roca should slot into the base of midfield with Victor Sanchez preferred to Esteban Granero in the middle of the park.




  • Unai Nunez is back from a ban and should start at centre-back despite the return of Yeray.
  • Inigo Lekue and Enric Saborit should start at left and right back, with Mikel Balenziaga and Oscar de Marcos out injured.
  • Inaki Williams should be set to play out on the right wing for Kuko Ziganda’s men.




(IndiaFantasy suggests picking equal players of both the teams)


Susaeta (ATH)

Nunez (ATH)

Duarte (ESL)

Lopez (ESL)

Moreno (ESL)

*(The aforementioned players are selected on the basis of their performance in their last match)



IndiaFantasy Winner Prediction:

Espanyol has won three of their last four games, with Quique Sanchez Flores’ side finally turning a corner. However, there is some doubt whether he will still be the manager as Stoke has offered him a way back to the Premier League.

The hosts went through to the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey in midweek, and things are looking up for them, especially given their impressive home form in Cornella.

Athletic is one of the more in-form teams in La Liga at present and has recorded four wins in their last five matches.
