Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Wednesday, 25 September 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).
Leganes are at the bottom of the ladder and rightly so, considering that they have been at the losing end in four of their previous five clashes. The squad picked up their only point so far last week, against Valencia on the road after both teams managed to slot no more than a goal apiece.
Athletic Bilbao, on the other hand, are at the other end of the table and are one of the only three teams left to taste defeat. Their last clash at home saw them post a comfortable 2-0 win over Alaves, while their previous outing saw them play out a stalemate with Mallorca.
It goes without saying that Leganes are yet to find their groove, even with home advantage intact. Given Athletic Bilbao’s form at the moment, the hosts are certainly in for a tough ninety minutes this week.
Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao Head to head (h2h)
- The last three clashes in a row have swung in favor of Athletic Bilbao.
- Leganes have picked up a win just once in their past six meetings.
- Their previous clash here ended in a 1-0 defeat for Leganes.
- Both teams have not found the back of the net together in their last three matchups here.
Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao Prediction
The hosts have been dismal in front of their home fans and are currently sporting a very disappointing three-game losing streak here under their belt. To make matters worse, it is worth mentioning that Leganes have conceded five goals so far from those clashes and have not been able to reply with even one of their own.
Considering that the last clash with Athletic Bilbao here also saw them admit defeat, Gaizko Garitano’s men are the favorites to come out on top in this one.
However, the away side have salvaged not more than a point in each of their past two outings. Taking into account that Leganes did force Valencia to share the spoils with them in their most recent clash, the safest punt would have to be a double chance favoring the Basque outfit.
All of their last three head to head clashes here have been low scoring ones with under 2.5 goals on the charts. With Athletic Bilbao scoring just one goal so far in their outings and Leganes yet to find the back of the net here, expect no more than a goal or two at the most by the end of the ninety minutes.
