Espanyol vs Leganes Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview of the Spanish La Liga match on Sunday, 5 July 2020. Kick off 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET at the RCDE Stadium (Barcelona).
Espanyol has changed little in their results since the new manager, but facing Leganes at home will be a splendid opportunity to turn the tables and see if they can win against other bottom-dwelling sides.
Rufete was given a tough task to start his campaign at Espanyol against Real Madrid and later a trip to Real Sociedad, both matches lost in the schedule.
Despite the losses, he made the best out of the sides and was just unlucky to be matched against top part teams.
Leganes is just one point ahead of the host, and they are winless for the last six clashes.
They will visit after a 0-3 loss on the road against Sevilla last time out. Since they are also at the bottom part of the table, the host will have a chance in the game.
Returning home after a 2-1 loss on the road to Real Sociedad in the last game will not put much pressure in the match over the Barcelona adversaries.
Besides, two of Espanyol’s overall five wins have come at home, and that too within the last five attempts as the host.
Leganes doesn’t show the strongest of form on the road with just one win from their 16 away fixtures in the campaign until now.
Winless in the last three tours, Los Pepineros will be far less likely to take all three points, but they still have a fighting chance at RCDC Stadium.
Espanyol vs Leganes Head-to-head (h2h)
- The visitor has recorded three of the last five overall wins.

- Their recent three fixtures haven’t seen both teams score.
- The host is unbeaten at home in three of the four clashes.
Espanyol vs Leganes Prediction
Trailing on the back of a four-game losing streak in the league will not be the ideal thing to look for in the favorites for the game. But the new gaffer has turned other gaze towards Espanyol within the last two games, despite the result.
There is a catch that if Rufete and his men can limit Zidane’s team to a 1-0 win at this venue, they could probably have the bragging rights against Leganes. With their poor away form, Los Pepineros is unlikely to cause any damage to the host.
The double chance favoring Espanyol will probably be the best bet in the clash to earn decent returns for the punters along with the tip for over 1.5 goals at 1.50 odds in the encounter.
