They are three points in front of Athletic Bilbao ahead of their ninth round meeting on Sunday evening at Estadio Municipal de Butarque.


Believe it or not, The Legionaries have the strongest defensive line in the league (together with Barcelona) having allowed no more than three goals in opening eight fixtures.

Leganes come into this after keeping four straight clean sheets in La Liga and on the back of consecutive victories over Eibar and Malaga in two previous rounds.

Athletic Bilbao

The story is entirely opposite with The Lions who got off to a slower start to the season, but who will be looking to make a turning point with the potential away victory against the sixth-placed side here.

Mikel Vesga brought them three points last time out against Sevilla at San Mames Barria, but Jose Angel Ziganda’s side failed to back it up in the mid-week when they only drew 2-2 at Swedish Ostersund.

Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao: Head to head

The two sides have played each other only two times so far sharing spoils in both of their last term’s meetings (1-1 and 0-0).

Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao: Prediction

We can hardly see the goal fest here and the Under 2.5 goals FT has to be the way to go according to Leganes’ defensive-minded style at the start of the season.

The home win, priced up at 2.45 is also more than tempting given Bilbao’s poor displays on the road so far in the season.

Leganes vs Athletic Bilbao: Bets

The first bet will be Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.47.

Braver tipsters can try with Leganes to win at 2.45.
