Leganes vs Villarreal
Spanish La Liga
Date: 3rd December 2017
Kick off at 11:00 UK / 12:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque (Leganes).
Javi Calleja did not want to take any risks as he sent his strongest lineup in mid-week’s Copa del Rey rematch with the lower-division Ponferradina side.
Both Cedric Bakambu and Carlos Bacca were on target in a commanding 3-0 win for the Yellow Submarine who’ll thus come into the clash with Leganes with an improved confidence after losing the last weekend’s home outing to Sevilla in La Liga.
The Legionaries were equally successful in Copa del Rey defeating Real Valladolid 1-0 at home on Thursday evening.
Nonetheless, their league form has seen a massive drop as of late, caused by the very tough schedule and matches against the likes of Sevilla, Valencia, Barcelona and Celta Vigo.
Villarreal are surely another high-profile opponent and bouncing back against them will be quite a challenging task for Asier Garitano and his side.
The hosts will really have to keep an eye on Cedric Bakambu ho has been red-hot in this season.
The striker has bagged as many as nine goals in La Liga and he was also on target in both Europa League and Copa del Rey.
Calleja’s men will be super motivated to bounce back after a loss to Sevilla last time out as a failure here could drop them out of top six in the Primera Division standings.
