Real Betis vs Leganes
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Saturday, 31 August 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarín (Sevilla).
Both teams have posted perfect losing records in this edition of the La Liga and remain the only ones to do so. Rightfully, they are placed 19th and 20th in the table of 20. Each side seems to have their own problems, with Leganes yet to find the back of the net, while Betis having conceded the most number of goals so far.
Anyhow, once the third match-day is over, at a minimum, only one squad will possess a losing record.
Hosts Betis will be hoping their home advantage to help them post their first win. The team is in direct contradiction to their performance of last campaign, as they had managed to reach within just three points of a Europa spot.
They had begun their current run at home, against Valladolid, and were dealt with a 1-2 loss. Later, they followed it up with a loss against defending champions Barcelona, at the Camp Nou.
The visitors had begun on the right note with a goal in the 15th minute itself against the title-holders, but then the Blaugrana woke up with a vengeance to put five goals in a row, into the visitors’ nets.

Real Betis vs Leganes Prediction
First and foremost, the reason to pick a favorite amongst the two would be the home advantage. Both have been struggling the most in the 2019-20 edition of the La Liga, and as such, on a level footing, the hosts should reign supreme.
Moreover, Leganes is yet to find the back of the net in the competition and coupled with the away handicap, the squad would really find it hard to do this weekend.
In addition, the home teams have had exerted considerable dominance in h2h clashes over the years – with the last six matches procuring home wins. Also, Betis possesses a 100% winning record in La Liga h2h battles at this venue, and never have failed to breach the opposing defense as well.
With these many factors in favor of Real, our top pick is obviously a home win.
