CEV vs ESL Dream11 Prediction for Celta Vigo vs Elche La Liga Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team


CEV vs ESL Dream11: Eduardo Coudet’s appointment around 13 months ago sparked a talented array of attacking players into action at Celta Vigo. Led by captain Iago Aspas, who returns to action after a suspension last week, the Galicians were an entertaining watch but have since returned to a relatively low-scoring theme. They now come up against an Espanyol side that, following promotion, have been very stubborn and difficult to play against. The Catalans sit comfortably in the middle-of-the-table, pushing into the top-half, having conceded just 18 goals in 17 games. This is expected to be an evenly matched and low-scoring encounter.
