ESL vs BAR Dream11 Prediction for Espanyol vs Barcelona La Liga Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team

Share

ESL vs BAR Dream11: Espanyol’s 2-1 setback away to Athletic Club last weekend was the Catalans’ fifth consecutive loss in all competitions. Last season, they were promoted after a tenacious defence laid the groundwork. They’ve had a good season and are currently in the middle of the standings. They now face a Barcelona side led by Xavi Hernandez, who had their greatest performance under their new coach last weekend. In their most recent match, Barcelona thrashed Atletico Madrid 4-2 and a low-scoring away win appears to be the most likely scenario in this Barcelona rivalry.
