Deportivo Alaves vs Leganes
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 21st January 2017
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de Mendizorrotza, Vitoria-Gasteiz.
Deportivo Alaves were unfortunate to end their impressive run of nine consecutive matches without a defeat in all competitions. The team had a man down early in the second half of the game against Celta Vigo last weekend, but their super solid defensive line managed to hold on all up until the 89th minute when Nemanja Radoja scored the winner for the Sky Blues at Balaidos. Alaves will have a nice opportunity to bounce back instantly since they are hosting Leganes in the 19th round of Primeira Division on Saturday afternoon at their Estadio de Mendizorrotza.
Leganes slowly came on the brink of the danger zone. The team led by Asier Garitano is without a win in their last eight matches in all competitions. Pepineros are having huge troubles with the attacking line as they failed to find the net in last two matches with Athletic Club and Real Betis.
