Huesca vs Leganes Prediction & Match Preview

Huesca vs Leganes
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 18th May 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Estadio El Alcoraz (Huesca).

Leganes lost a bit of steam towards the end of their league campaign. The sense of safety might have played a role in bringing some complacency into the midst of the players, but this being the final game of the season, the squad would love to close out with a great performance. It’d be the perfect thank-you-note for all the fans who have stuck till the very end for their team.

Huesca is easily the worst team in the league and rightfully has been relegated. They are at the extreme end of the table and managed to win just six games all through this league season. The fact that at least a long, hard season in the Segunda awaits them might be playing in the back of their minds as they line up for one last time in the first division.

Huesca vs Leganes Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Leganes recorded two of the last three wins.
  • Leganes won the reverse fixture of this tie, with a 1-0 scoreline.
  • Only once has Huesca kept a clean sheet against this opponent.
  • Both teams found the back of the net in two of the last three clashes.

Huesca vs Leganes Prediction

Had Leganes managed to win two extra games, they would have been fighting for a place in Europe, whereas Huesca was always the team at the extreme end and the frontrunner for relegation. The latter might not have any energy left to meaninglessly take part in another game, with a hard campaign waiting for them next season in the lower division.

Huesca was winless in ten of their last eleven matches, and in 16 of their last 20 at home. Leganes, meanwhile, lost just thrice in their last ten attempts and definitely will want to close out their season with a good performance.

Going on, Leganes won the reverse fixture of this tie, and only once have they failed to break down the Huesca defense. Also, Huesca has conceded the second-most number of goals so far in the competition, while Leganes has a better defensive record than the third-placed, former Champions Real Madrid. Expect Leganes to dominate proceedings this Saturday at the Estadio El Alcoraz.
