Leganes vs Huesca Prediction & Match Preview

Leganes vs Huesca
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 12 January 2019
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).

Huesca got their debut campaign up and running with second win of the season seven days ago against Real Betis at El Alcoraz.

The team showed a fantastic spirit to claw their way back into the contest after conceding the first goal of the affair ten minutes after the break. David Ferreiro and Christian Rivera scored goals within six minutes to secure a massive victory for Huesca.

Francisco’s men still have a mountain to climb to get to the safe zone which is currently eight points away. Can they back up last weekend’s success and stay unbeaten in the first game of Saturday’s La Liga program against Leganes away at Butarque?

The hosts sit 16th in the league ladder and are eight points adrift of rock-bottomed Huesca. They will be looking for first win in five league matches here, following a streak of three draws and a defeat in last four Primera Division ties. They began the year with a narrow 1-0 loss to Espanyol away at RCDE Stadium.

Leganes vs Huesca: Head-to-head

Huesca won two, drew one and lost one of four head to head outings against the Legionaries.

Teams last battled it out in the 2015/16 Segunda Division campaign when Huesca claimed four points (1-1 draw at home and 2-3 win on the road).

Leganes vs Huesca: Prediction

Leganes’ matches were short on goalmouth action of late. None of last five outings they played produced three or more goals, three ended with fewer than two. The Legionaries bagged just one goal in last three league outings.

Given this match has a massive importance for both outfits, we have reasons to expect a low-scoring affair with the main action happening at the center of the park. Under 2.5 goals FT is the best of betting options, paid at 1.53, while we will alternatively back draw at the half time at the odds of 2.00.

Leganes vs Huesca: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.53 (8/15)
  • Draw at the half time @ 2.00 (1/1).
