ESL vs ELC Dream11 Prediction for Espanyol vs Elche La Liga Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team


ESL vs ELC Dream11: A penalty shootout victory against Ponferradina in the Round of 32 of the Copa del Rey in midweek came after a 2-1 win away to Valencia on New Years’ Eve for Espanyol. Those victories have continued an impressive season so far as they sit firmly ensconced in the middle-of-the-table, following promotion last season. They now come up against an Elche side that shared a goalless draw with Robert Moreno’s Granada last weekend as they battle against the bottom three and the relegation places. This is expected to be a low-scoring encounter.

Who will win today’s ESL vs ELC match?

  • Espanyol picked up a big win last time out, coming from behind to beat Valencia thanks to a penalty Raul de Tomas and a late Javi Puado goal.
  • The Catalans have since followed that up with a penalty shootout win over Ponferradina to progress to the next round of the Copa del Rey.
  • Before the win over Valencia, Espanyol lost to Celta Vigo and beat Levante. That kind of up and down form has been symptomatic of Espanyol’s season, but that is to be expected for a newly promoted side. They will be pleased to be sitting in 11th place at this point.
