Leganes vs Mallorca
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Saturday, 26 October 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).
While the stature of the teams suggests that the upper hand goes to Leganes, the current form of either brings some change into an apparent reality. Mallorca, despite being a new entry into the top division of Spain, just defeated Real Madrid the last day, and are enjoying loads of confidence. Meanwhile, the hosts of the day are placed at the extreme bottom of the table and are yet to post a win on the board.

Leganes vs Mallorca Prediction
Lega lost the last day on the road against Getafe, as they let in two unanswered goals. Their most recent tie in front of the home crowd ended in a 1-2 loss for the hosts. Meanwhile, Mallorca led for almost 85 minutes against the mighty Los Blancos the last day, and registered the win as well, with a clean sheet.
Suffice it to say, momentum as well as confidence side with the guests, and this will amply help them to tackle the away handicap this weekend.
At present, the Cucumber Growers are winless in their past ten matches in a row and lost seven of these. In fact, they are completely winless this whole season, and their position at the bottom of the table is a rightfully earned one.
At home, they are winless in their preceding five ties and lost the previous four. They had also failed to find the back of the net in three of their past five appearances here too.
On the other hand, their guests have won their last two games and kept clean sheets in both. While their form on the road has been dim, against the struggling Lega, the visiting contingent is expected to avoid a loss at the least.
Coming to goals though, despite the upper hand, the fact that they are on the road will play a role. Also, so far, Moreno’s men have managed a total of just seven goals from their nine fixtures.
Consequentially, the chances for this tie to turn into a high goal-scoring one are very low.
