Leganes vs Alaves Prediction & Match Preview

Leganes vs Alaves
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Friday, 23rd November 2018
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).

Leganes, a team currently in the relegation zone hosts one of the contenders for European qualification next season, Alaves, at the Butarque this Friday, to start with the 13th round fixtures of LaLiga.

Alaves orchestrated a comeback win against Huesca, at home, last weekend. The visitors went ahead in the 34th minute, courtesy a goal from Gomez. But Alaves didn’t let the lead stay on for long. They hit back in the sixth minute itself. Jony spearheaded the attack. Later in the second half, Sobrino completed the proceedings and the comeback, much to the joy of the home fans. The final scoreline read 2-1.

Leganes will be pleased with themselves as they kept an away clean sheet against free-scoring Girona, especially with the likes of Christian Stuani in their midst. The goalless draw will be more of a moral victory for the 18th placed Leganes than the 9th placed, the home side, Girona. Leganes will have to be careful about their habit of conceding a lot of cards, though.

Leganes vs Alaves Prediction

Alaves has amassed an impressive 23 points so far in their league season. The achievement becomes more majestic in light of the fact that, Atletico Madrid too have the same points as Alaves, and league-toppers FC Barcelona has managed to score just a single point more than this team, with the likes of Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets, Arthur Melo etc.

Alaves will show their quality in this away match. They will see this as a golden opportunity to go to the top of the table, as two of the leaders, Atleti and Barca, take on each other this week.

Five of the last six matches between these teams have seen both teams getting on the scoresheet. That trend will likely continue in this tie too.
