ESL vs RM Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Espanyol vs Real Madrid Laliga Live Score October 3


ESL vs RM Dream11: Catalonia vs Castilla, but not quite the main rivalry. Following promotion, Espanyol come into this on the back of a steady start to the campaign. The hosts have won just one of their opening seven matches but they have also had three draws in that time with a couple of last-minute defeats. In those seven games, there has been just 11 goals with four scored in their favour. They come up against a Real Madrid side that remain weak defensively and come into this on the back of a shock 2-1 defeat at home to Moldovan champions Sheriff Tiraspol in the UEFA Champions League. Carlo Ancelotti has insisted that they haven’t been strong enough defensively so there will be more emphasis on that style of play – despite not having much to worry about in the Espanyol attack. Under 2.5 goals, therefore, looks a strong bet for this one.

Date: October 3, Sunday
Kick-Off: 7:45 PM (IST)
Venue: RCDE Stadium, Cornella de Llobregat
