ESL vs ATL Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Espanyol vs Atletico Madrid Laliga Live Score September 12


ESL vs ATL Dream11: Newly-promoted Espanyol have started life back in La Liga in quite dull style. Back-to-back goalless draws was followed up by a slender 1-0 defeat away to fellow promoted side Real Mallorca. In that game they had Sergi Gomez sent off late in stoppage time so they will be without the centre-half for this clash against an Atletico Madrid side that could give a second debut to Antoine Griezmann following his deadline day loan move from Barcelona. The Frenchman will likely start on the bench such is the form of Angel Correa and irreplaceability of Luis Suarez. The visitors are unbeaten and it remains to be seen as to whether ‘Cholismo’ will evolve into something more attacking but, regardless of that, they will expect to come out on top in this one.

Date: September 12, Sunday
Kick-Off: 5:30 PM (IST)
Venue: RCDE Stadium, Cornella de Llobregat

DEF: Vila, Trippier, Gimenez, Savic
MID: Embarba, Puado, Koke
FOR: Griezmann, Suarez, Dimata

Likely Winner:

  • It has been a very quiet start to life back in La Liga for Espanyol, who gained a reputation over their many years in the Primera for not being the most exciting team to watch, too often scheduled to play on Monday nights.
  • Atletico actually dominated that clash, but were couldn’t make the most of their chances. The addition of Antoine Griezmann should help to fix that particular problem, though, there may be better sides to face than a team that has only conceded one goal in three games.

Match Odds:

The odds in favour of Atletico Madrid to get the win is 1.42.
