Leganes vs Getafe Prediction
Leganes have finally got into their stride and are currently unbeaten in their past six games in all competitions. Their previous clash on the road saw them slot four unanswered goals past Murcia in the Copa Del Rey. While at home, they breezed past Espanyol with a comfortable 2-0 scoreline.
Be that as it may, the hosts are still dwelling in the relegation zone at the moment, with just fourteen points to their name.
On the other hand, Getafe have been hit by a sharp decline in form which has seen them fail to pick up any points in their last two La Liga fixtures on the trot. The visitors though, are still sporting a mammoth sixteen-point advantage over their foes on the ladder and are just two points shy of breaking into the top five as well.
Furthermore, the guests have stumbled on just three occasions away from home this term. They have also salvaged a point at the least in six of their previous nine trips on the road.
In sharp contrast, Leganes have come out on top just thrice at home so far. That too, against sides that are currently in the bottom half of the ladder.
Hence, it goes without saying that Getafe are sizing up to be the favorites this week. However, the visitors have shared the spoils twice in their last three visits here.
Taking into account that Leganes have also been showing signs of promise as of late, the safest punt would have to be a double chance.
Additionally, the hosts have scored five goals from their past two games here alone. Taking into account that four out of the last five h2h meetings here have also witnessed a total of two goals or more on the final scorecards, it is certainly safe to expect over 1.5 goals in this one as well.
