Leganes vs Valencia: Preview and Predictions

Leganes vs Valencia
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 1 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:15 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).

Leganes will host Valencia looking to maintain the streak of two wins and a draw in last three home outings in La Liga. Nonetheless, it will be a huge challenge for the hosts given that they are up against the red-hot opposition which has won six and drawn one of last seven games in the competition.

Such stellar form has basically almost secured the Champions League football next term for Marcelino and his men given they are 12 points adrift of the fifth-placed Villarreal with just nine games left to play until the end of the season. The main catalyst for the splendid streak has definitely been the new Spanish national team member Rodrigo Moreno.

Team’s top striker has found the back of the net on four occasions in last three league games (consecutively) and he was also on the scoreline in Spain’s 1-1 draw with Germany last Friday (international friendly).

Valencia have generally played an open attacking football packed with goals lately and we do expect them to use the same approach against Leganes here. The host do not have such predators in the final third, but they can be very dangerous from counter attacks, particularly when they play in front of the home crowd. Given that the Bats have shipped at least a goal in 10 of last 11 away games in all competitions, backing goals at both ends does not seem a bad idea at all here.

Leganes vs Valencia: Head-to-head

The head to head tie entirely favours Valencia who have won each of five meetings with the Legionaries.

This term’s clash has seen a demolishing 3-0 victory for Los Che at Mestalla.

Leganes vs Valencia: Prediction

Valencia have been on a terrific run of late and we have to respect the fact they’ve won six of last seven league matches.

On the other hand, Leganes have not lost a single of last three home matches in the competition and they can be a tough nut to crack in their own backyard.

We don’t suggest high stakes here which is why we’ll chase a bit higher odds and go with Valencia to win & BTTS as well as Valencia to win by exactly one goal margin bets.
