La Liga new boys Leganes will look to build on their away victory on Thursday against Deportivo La Coruna as the weekend La Liga activities continues, they will be hosting struggling Valencia at Etsadio Municipal de Butarque.

Leganes came from a goal down in their last game to defeat Deportivo La Coruna on Thursday. After going down in the 31st minute through C. Borges goal, Luciano pulled them level in the 55th minute while Gabriel scored the winner for them in the 61st. They are currently 10th in La Liga table and aim to climb further up as they are hopeful of a home win.
Valencia got their first victory of the season on Thursday against Deportivo Alaves in 2-1 home victory. I would say Alaves were unfortunate in the game as Laguardia’s own goal put Valencia in front after 28 minutes of play.
The two teams got back on level terms in 45th minute as Toquero scored for Alaves, but Valencia took the lead again in the 88th minute as D. Parejo converted from the spot. They now hope to build on this win hoping to leave the relegation zone immediately.
