ATH vs ESL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Espanyol will be aiming for the 2nd spot in the table when they host a struggling Athletic Bilbao in a La Liga match at RCDE Stadium, in Barcelona, tomorrow on Monday night (IST).
There has been some real surprise packages racking up in La Liga this season. The struggles of Real Madrid have been well documented by media and the fans on the social media. And on the other hand, there are teams like Deportivo Alaves and Espanyol who are punching above their weights and still are not getting enough attention for their herculean efforts.
Both the aforementioned teams finished in the bottom half of the table in the 2017-18 season, while at this moment, Alaves and Espanyol are 3rd and 5th respectively in the standings.
The Periquitos may have lost the last match against Cadiz in the Copa del Rey, but they remain unbeaten in the last five. What’s more impressive about their performance is that they are a very dogged team, and possess the joint 2nd best defensive record in La Liga.
Athletic Bilbao, on the other hand, are on the slide for the last few seasons. Long gone are the days when they used to play in the Champions League and the Europa League against the very big teams in Europe. But the current situation is all about negotiating this tough period where results are going against them and they are falling into the dreaded relegation zone.
The Lions are winless in their previous nine games, with the 1-1 being the most frequent scoreline. The last week’s 0-0 draw against Valencia was also their first clean sheet of the season. So this should give Bilbao a platform to build for the season ahead given they have conceded 15 goals this season.
