Leganes vs Celta Vigo
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 14 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).
Iago Aspas reminded of his best days by completing a hat-trick in a demolishing win over Sevilla last weekend. Celta Vigo will try and back up such an impressive performance on Saturday afternoon when they travel to Estadio Municipal de Butarque to tackle Leganes. The hosts lost two on the bounce amid a tough schedule and matches against Valencia and Barcelona.
These defeats saw the Legionaries slide down to 14thin the Primera Division ladder, but they are still on a safe distance from the relegation zone. Asier Garitano’s side was on a decent run in games at the home patch where they kept three straight clean sheets. It was a streak which saw Leganes clinch two wins and a draw against Las Palmas, Malaga and Sevillla. It came to an end before the international break when Valencia took spoils from Butarque.
Given Celta’s dreadful record on travels, Garitano’s side should get a chance to return on the winning ways in games in front of the home fans. The Sky Blues lost four and drew one of last five matches away from home in La Liga. Emiliano Unzue’s men actually scored just once in last rive games away from Balaidos,and that lone goals came on the previous trip when Celta held Athletic Bilbao to a 1-1 draw at San Mames.
Leganes vs Celta Vigo: Head-to-head
This will only be the fourth head to head encounter between these rivals.
Leganes won the first one before Celta’s run of two straight wins.
Interestingly, none of past three H2H ties saw three or more goals or both teams on the scoresheet.
Leganes vs Celta Vigo: Prediction
Even though Celta will come into this off the back of a splendid performance in a 4-0 win over Sevilla, the value is with Leganes here.
The hosts can be backed at the sky-high 3.10 to grab the spoils in front of the home crowd. It’s an entirely fair price if we know that Celta lost five and drew one of last six league games on the road.
