Leganes vs Osasuna
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Saturday, 17 August 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Muncipal de Butaraque (Leganes).
Leganes managed to scrape through the prior campaign in the La Liga and settled for a comfortable 13th position at the end. Their goal-scoring could have been better a tad more, as per fans, as the squad was able to post just 37 goals in total from their 38 fixtures in the competition.
Also, the way they ended their campaign was a bit of a buzzkill. Against possibly the worst of the lot, Huesca, who had also ensured their relegation at that point, the team lost 2-1, on the road.
Compensating for that embarrassment, they are back to start this season with a bang. Fans are hopeful due to the fact them taking on a newly promoted Osasuna, and that too at the Butaraque.
The guests for the day had a fantastic run the previous season in the lower division and had lifted the title in style, with a lead of eight points at the top. They also had scored the most number of goals and remained unbeaten in 35 of their total 42 fixtures in the competition.

Leganes vs Osasuna Prediction
Leganes is on a streak of four wins and is unbeaten in their last seven. They also scored two or more goals in five of their last seven fixtures and conceded just a single goal from their last six matches combined. At home, they remained invincible in 17 of their last 20, and won the last three on the trot, while scoring twice or more in the last four.
On the other hand, Osasuna had been a lower-division-squad in 2018-19 and is yet to get integrated to La Liga. Moreover, they are on the road, and lost their last two visits to this venue, while failing to score too.
In addition, h2h encounters clearly point towards the home teams having superiority. They have won the last four straight clashes and scored two or more goals in all four.
As such, count on the home team having the upper hand this weekend.
