Leganes vs Sevilla
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Saturday, 16 January 2021
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque, Leganes.
Sevilla will travel to Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Saturday evening to take on the lower-division outfit Leganes in the last 32 round of Copa del Rey.
The visitors enter the tie as heavy favourites but they will have to dig deep to justify the tag on the pitch. Los Legionarios are anything but a naive opposition, particularly if we take a look at their defensive stats in the 2020/21 season.
Jose Marti’s men conceded no more than 14 goals in 20 league outings so far. They do struggle to match such displays at the opposing end of the pitch as they have notched no more than 19 so far in the campaign, though.
Since the visitors have been tough to break down in the first part of the season as well, we have can hardly imagine a goal fest on Saturday night.
Leganes vs Sevilla Head-to-head
- Sevilla have been the dominant force in the head to head clashes with Los Legionarios historically.
- They won 9 and lost only 3 of 16 meetings with Leganes.
- Los Rojiblancos have picked up two clean sheet wins when they played Leganes in the previous term of La Liga (1-0 and 0-3).
- None of the last three H2H encounters saw both sides netting a goal.
Leganes vs Sevilla Prediction
Sevilla had been on a hot streak of results before the last weekend’s loss at Atletico Madrid. It was a defeat that has significantly hurt the team’s ambitions of challenging the title in a season where both Real Madrid and Barcelona are struggling badly for consistent results. Los Rojiblancos won four and drew one of five matches before falling to Atleti.
It is a very good form in general ahead of the clash with the lower-division rivals. All eyes will be on Youssef En-Nesyri who has completed a hat-trick in the recent 3-2 home win over Real Sociedad. The Moroccan forward is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick. Away win to nil is our standout bet for this match, paid at the 2.75 odds.
