Leganes vs Celta Vigo Prediction & Match Preview

Leganes vs Celta Vigo
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 8 December 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).

The two teams are placed in the bottom-most zone of the table, and of the two, Leganes are easily the worst of the lot. Suffice it to say, points are in dire need, and the two squads will try their best to secure the three points on offer. However, considering the current form of Celta Vigo, which is comparatively better than that of the hosts, they stand a better chance to emerge victorious.

Leganes vs Celta Vigo Prediction

Leganes were on the road the last match-day, and were desperate to avoid another loss. Unfortunately, they were against Sevilla, and expectedly lost the game. The scoreline was 1-0, in favor of the hosts.

Meanwhile, Celta had to settle for a goalless draw at home the previous game week. They had locked horns with Valladolid.

Regarding the result for this weekend encounter, consider how Leganes have been extremely unimpressive wholly throughout this campaign, whereas Celta have very recently shown signs of improvement.

To quote a stat, Leganes are winless in their last five match-ups, and had lost four of these. They were also winless in 15 of their previous 16 overall games, and lost 12 of these as well. At home, they remained winless in seven of their previous eight appearances, and this sole win had come against the relatively inexperienced, newly-promoted Mallorca.

Also, Leganes are placed dead-last in the table, and have managed to secure a total of six points from their fifteen match-ups in the league.

On the other hand, Celta are unbeaten in their previous two matches, and had won their latest road trip 1-3, which was against Villarreal.

Likely, count on the recently-improved Celta Vigo to do their best to emerge victorious this Sunday, and at the worst, they might be held to a draw.

Regarding goals, these two possess two of the worst defenses in the entire competition. They have conceded a total of 45 goals from their combined 30 games in the league, and since this match will be considered an opportunity by both to post the much-needed three points on the board, the chances for goals further increase.

As such, at worst, these two leaky defenses should combine to produce at least two goals this Sunday.
