Levante vs Leganes Match Preview
Levante admitted a fourth consecutive defeat last week after reigning champions Barcelona took them down with a narrow 2-1 scorecard. Despite registering ten shots at goal in that clash, the hosts were just not clinical in their efforts and ultimately made the trip back home with a consolation goal in the bag.
The home team have been steadily slumping down the ladder, owing to their poor string of results, which has now left them thirteen on the ladder with twenty-six points to their name.
Meanwhile, Leganes pulled off an impressive comeback against Real Sociedad in their most recent match at home. The visitors were trailing by a goal at the break, in that latter matchup. However, goals from Kenneth Omeruo, four minutes post the restart, and Oscar Rodriguez, in the dying stages of regulation time, ensured that all three points went their way at the last blast of the whistle.
Be that as it may, the guests have been coping poorly in their campaign, overall. With just eighteen points in the bag, Leganes are currently dwelling in the relegation zone and are just a defeat away from potentially hitting rock bottom.
Levante vs Leganes Prediction
Home advantage has certainly made a difference for Levante this season, with five of their eight wins, so far, coming at home. It is also worth mentioning that the hosts have stumbled just thrice here, and have salvaged at least a point in seven of their past ten matchups too.
In sharp contrast, Leganes have been at their worst on the road. Miserably, they are one of the only two sides, in the La Liga, that are yet to have a taste of success away from home.
Taking into account that Levante have also enjoyed the better share of results in their previous meetings here, the traveling faithful can rule out any hopes of their side picking up all three points this weekend.
However, the visitors have shared the spoils in half of their past ten outings on the trot. Taking into account that Levante have dropped points in half of their previous four fixtures here, a double chance is sizing up to the safest punt in this one.
Furthermore, Leganes’s frontline have been virtually invisible in the final third, especially on the road. The guests have racked up just six goals to their tally, which is the least by any side in the cluster.
In addition, all of their past three h2h meetings here have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts. As such, expect a low scoring affair come Saturday as well.
