Las Palmas vs Leganes: Preview and Predictions

Las Palmas vs Leganes
Primera Division
Date: 24th September 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de Gran Canaria

The two teams that are sitting side by side in the league table of Primera Division are meeting at Estadio de Gran Canaria on Sunday.

Las Palmas

The hosts, like their upcoming visitors, are sitting around the middle of the league table with a similar record. They haven’t had a draw so far; only losses and wins. The 6 points they have come from the wins against Malaga and Athletic Bilbao. Only once, aside from those wins, they managed to score. The previous round brought them their third loss for the season. Their coach had talked about the importance of scoring first prior to the duel against Bilbao, but they were unable to do so at Sevilla’s doorstep. The silver lining is that they conceded only a goal. in fact, so far, only Atletico Madrid managed to score against Las Palmas more than one goal.

Leganes

Leganes are in a slightly better position than their upcoming hosts. They too have 6 points, from the two wins against Espanyol and Alaves, both earned away. But, instead of the three losses, they have two losses and a draw. The draw comes from the previous round. They hosted Girona and the match ended without goals, the second match in a row that they failed to score. Beside the similar record, low-scoring matches are another thing they have in common with Las Palmas. But, their defensive line seems to be working even better, as they conceded only 3 goals in total so far. All their attention appears to be paid to the defence, since they also scored only 3 goals in total.

Las Palmas vs Leganes: Head to head

Most often their duels ended with a draw. They are even tied when it comes to the wins – both teams have 5 wins respectively.

Las Palmas vs Leganes: Prediction

Based on everything above, we expect of the hosts to take all the advantages of the home turf and come out as winners, with less than three goals scored in total on the match.
