Leganes vs Espanyol
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 12 May 2019
Kick-Off 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).
Mid-table rivals Leganes and Espanyol will take on each other in a match without any significance in terms of outcome on Sunday afternoon at Estadio Municipal de Butarque.
Both outfits will go into it in the highest of spirits after claiming huge scalps in the previous round respectively.
The hosts shocked Champions League hopefuls Sevilla 0-3 away at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan last weekend, while The Budgerigars stunned second-placed Atletico Madrid 3-0 in front of the home crowd at RCDE Stadium.
Espanyol made it seven consecutive league matches without a defeat. They lost only one of past seven Primera Division affairs on the road as well.
It is a massive rise in form if we know they have been struggling badly on travels ever since the season began.
Leganes vs Espanyol: Head-to-head
Leganes will have the opportunity to make it all square at three wins apiece coming into sixth head to head encounter with the Budgerigars.
Espanyol picked up a 1-0 victory when teams locked horns in the first part of the season at RCDE Stadium.
Just one of five head to head meetings between the two outfits produced goals at both ends.
Leganes vs Espanyol: Prediction
Much like their counterparts, Leganes improved their defensive performances of late. They kept two straight clean sheets in a goalless draw to Celta Vigo and a 0-3 drubbing of Sevilla last weekend. The Legionaries shipped only 14 goals in 18 home games in this term of La Liga.
Nevertheless, Espanyol had a streak of six successive matches with the option of both teams scoring before the aforementioned 3-0 thumping of Atletico Madrid eight days ago.
Looking at the head to head record, we have more reasons to go for the low-scoring contest here, though.
Under 2.5 goals FT is well worth backing at 1.90 odds, while draw at the half time would be the perfect alternative option at 2.10.
