Leganes vs Malaga: Preview and Predictions

Leganes vs Malaga
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 3 March 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).

The trip to Butarque will definitely be one of the last trains to catch for Malaga who are just not pulling up any trees lately. The Anchovies sit rock bottom in the Primera Division standings after suffering five consecutive defeats in the competition. The safe zone is seven points aw at this stage, and a serious turnaround in from is required if Jose Gonzalez wants to keep his new team in the elite next year.

The clash with Leganes should, however, provide an opportunity for the visitors to finally terminate the horrendous spell of form. The Legionaries have also been struggling badly with the form of late and they will head into this off the back of five losses and a draw in last six matches across competitions.

Luckily for Asier Garitano, his men have shown decent displays throughout the season in general and such a dreadful run of form does not put their elite class status in jeopardize. Nonetheless, we have to mention that Leganes have entirely lost the attacking momentum lately. The Legionaries will head into this aft5er netting just a single goal in last seven matches in all competitions. Moreover, they’ve failed to break the deadlock past the likes of Las Palmas in their previous clash at Butarque last weekend.
