Leganes vs Sevilla
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 18 March 2018
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).
Sevilla will travel to Leganes in sky-high spirits after a magnificent display on Wednesday evening at Old Trafford where they shocked Premier League heavyweights Manchester United to eliminate Mourinho’s squad from the Champions League. Vincenzo Montella’s men have thus improved the atmosphere in the dressing room after a disappointing 0-2 defeat to Valencia.
The loss at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan has moved Los Rojiblancos out of the contest for the top four finish and the Champions League anthem won’t be heard in Andalusia next year (unless Sevilla miraculously go all the way and lift the trophy in this season). Sevillistas are now 11 points adrift of Valencia in fourth place and they can now only play for the Europa League spots in the remaining of Primera Division season.
Leganes’ form has seen somewhat of a slump of late, but Asier Garitano’s men have already picked up the sufficient amount of points to be pretty safe from the relegation scrap in the final quarter of the campaign. The Legionaries have lost 6, drawn 1 and won just 1 of last eight matches in all competitions and they’ve failed to find the back of the net in three of last four league ties.
Leganes vs Sevilla: Head-to-head
Sevilla have been pretty dominant in the history of meetings with Leganes against whom they’ve only suffered one defeat in eleven games.
Los Rojiblancos have won four and drawn two of last six encounters with Leganes.
Sevilla went through 3-1 on aggregate when the two sides met in the semifinal of Copa del Rey just recently.
Leganes vs Sevilla: Prediction
Wissam Ben Yedder was the man who booked Sevilla’s ticket to the quarterfinal of the Champions League netting brace after coming on from the bench to replace Luis Muriel on Tuesday at Old Trafford.
The French forward is expected to make the starting lineup at Butarque and backing him to capitalize on such a splendid performance and find the back of the net past the struggling domestic opposition looks to be the best of the betting options here.
