Granada vs Leganes
Spanish La Liga 2016/17
Date: Saturday, 1st October 2016
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes, Granada.
The misery is piling up again on Granada this season as they are one of the two teams in Spanish La Liga who are yet to win a game. They dramatically escaped relegation by a 1 point advantage last season after taking 3 wins of their last 5 matches. But so far they haven’t shown justice to the new found life. After 6 match weeks, El Grana have lost 4 and drawn 2 and are 19th in the league table.
The newly promoted Leganes have mixed fortunes in their first 6 matches of the new season. Asier Garitano will be fairly satisfied with the start after having accumulated 7 points from their 6 matches so far. They have won twice already this season, with both coming away from home. So there is every reason they must be confident when taking on a team like Granada on a bad run of form.
Granada vs Leganes: Head-to-Head Stats
The latest two competitive meetings between these two sides happened in the Copa Del Rey last season in the month of December. Leganes started with a 2-1 win in the first leg at home, but Granada overturned the deficit with a 1-0 win in the second leg and progressed on away goal rule.
Granada vs Leganes: Predictions
It is hard to see Granada turning any tables with a similar kind of performance from their first 6 league games. A majority of their problems lie with a leaky defense which conceded 15 goals so far. Leganes are a side who like to play pressing game and can be very dangerous on the break. And they have already won twice on the road this season. They will be under less pressure, but high on confidence and look like slight favourites here. But a double chance on the away side is the wiser option.
While Leganes have also conceded in their last 4 matches and Granada have scored in every match this season. So a better option for this match is both teams to score and over 2.5 goals.
