ESL vs RB Dream11 Prediction for Espanyol vs Real Betis La Liga Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team


ESL vs RB Dream11: Espanyol would have hoped to escape relegation this season after their promotion last season. Last season, the Catalans were promoted after some strong defensive performances, and that stability and tenacity has continued this season. Manuel Pellegrini has done an outstanding job at Real Betis, and the Andalusians have done a fantastic job of balancing their domestic and European responsibilities so far this season. Despite this, they may find it difficult to vanquish their opponents, particularly when they are away from home. This one is expected to be a low-scoring affair.

Who will win today’s ESL vs RB match?

  • Real Betis head to Catalonia on the back of a home win over strugglers Alaves thanks to a brace from Borja Iglesias, a brilliant Sergio Canales effort and a neat Juanmi chip.
  • Before the win over Alaves, Betis beat Sevilla in a controversial Copa del Rey derby, with the game being continued a day later after Sevilla player Joan Jordan was hit by an object thrown from the stands.
  • Those wins will be seen as vital for Manuel Pellegrini’s men following three La Liga games without victory and a noticeable drop in confidence on the back of that run of results.
  • Espanyol have been rather strong at home, but Betis are the stronger of the two sides, and they have the advantage of having a squad with depth amid a run of three games within a week for both sides.

The odds in favor of a Real Betis win in this clash is 2.40 as per 1XBET.
