Leganes vs Villarreal
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Saturday, 14 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).
Leganes are the only team left in the table to get off the mark and have been at the losing end in each of their previous three games in a running. Despite taking the initial lead in their last trip on the road to Betis, their counterparts turned things around with two quick goals to deprive the hosts of salvaging any points.
The home team have not been faring any better in the comforts of home either and were taken down by Atletico Madrid in their last match up here by a narrow 1-0 scoreline.
Villareal are yet to register their first win of the campaign and have so far recorded two draws and a defeat from their respective clashes. The visitors forced Los Blancos to share the spoils with them in their most recent game at home and had their first taste of defeat in their previous outing against Levante.
However, given the dismal form that Leganes are sporting at the moment, Villareal will certainly be fancying their chances of picking up all three points in this one.

- Five of the last eight meetings have seen Villareal come out on top.

- Only one of their previous six matchups here have featured over 2.5 goals on the charts.
Leganes vs Villarreal Prediction
The hosts have been far from convincing in all of their clashes and have been struggling to even get their names on the scoresheet. The squad have been at the receiving end of four goals from their last three games alone and have found no more than a consolation goal so far.
On the other hand, Villarreal have just one defeat under their belt at the moment. Furthermore, the bragging rights went in favor of the visitors when the two teams last locked horns at this venue.
Nevertheless, it needs saying that Leganes have been able to get the better of this opponent in three of their last six clashes here, and have even held them to a draw on two occasions as well.
Although the away side are sizing up to be the favorites to clinch the win as far as current form goes, there is a slight possibility that Leganes will be able to hold the visitors to a draw at the most, so a double chance is certainly the safest option.
All five of the last six clashes between the two sides here, have seen under 2.5 goals on the scoreboards. Taking into account that neither team have been successful in racking up the goals tally in their last two matchups either, a low scoring clash is definitely in the reckoning.
