Alaves vs Leganes Prediction
Alaves had taken on Granada the last match-day, and did manage to hold the scoreline at 0-0 till half time. However, Granada scored thrice in the latter 45 minutes to take the win. Discipline was a bit off from the guests, as they racked up four yellows, and a red, which probably the home team took advantage of.
Leganes meanwhile made full use of their home status, as they recorded a 3-2 win over Celta Vigo. The score could have been a bit more impressive if the hosts concentrated well on defense in the final minutes of the game. Celta had scored twice in the final half hour, after trailing 3-0.
This Friday, take into consideration the form of Leganes on the road. The team is winless in the last eight away games, and could score a total of two goals from their previous seven such fixtures. In addition, the team was also winless in 15 of their preceding 17 overall fixtures, and they are placed 19th in a table of 20.
Going on, Alaves have shown the ability to perform well at home this season. In fact, they have lost just twice in front of the home crowd this campaign, and it had come against Real Madrid, and Sevilla.
Moreover, h2h clashes too point towards the home team coming out the favorite. Not once in the last 15 years have a team on the road registered an h2h victory.
Finally, Leganes have scored the least number of goals away from home, and are completely winless on the road this league campaign.
Taking into account these observations, hosts Alaves are expected to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.
