Leganes vs Celta Vigo Prediction & Match Preview

Leganes vs Celta Vigo
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 27th April 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).

Celta Vigo may be in the 15th spot in the table, but they are no different than a side in the relegation zone at this point. They have a lead of just two points over the cut-off line, and they have teams like Girona and Villarreal below them, who would give anything to avoid getting a boot to the Segunda.

Leganes needs to tread carefully too. It’s true that they do have 41 points as of now, but both Eibar and Levante, who are below them, are capable of raising their performance level when needed. It’d do well for Leganes to take advantage of their home status for the tie, and try to post some points on the board.

Leganes vs Celta Vigo Prediction

Games between these teams have always been extremely competitive, with neither willing to concede even an inch to the other. This weekend, stakes are even higher. Celta faces an imminent exit from the Primeira Division if they are not able to perform well in these remaining match-days, whereas Leganes is not out of risk too.

As such, teams will be highly reluctant to concede goals and put themselves under pressure. Moreover, matches between these sides have always been scarce of goals. In fact, since 2001, no h2h tie has seen both teams on the scorecard or more than two goals. The reverse fixture of the tie had ended with a 0-0 scoreline.

The last time these two met at this venue, the scorecard read 1-0, in favor of Leganes. Finally, Leganes has scored the least number of goals in the entire competition. Expect not many goals from this fixture.
