Levante vs Leganes
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 27 October 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Ciudad de Valencia (Valencia).
Levante made it three wins on the spin in some fashion, taking a huge Real Madrid scalp in the previous La Liga round.
The Frogs took advantage of Madrid’s disastrous form to score two early goals through Jose Luis Morales and Roger Marti. They managed to hold on to the lead and resist Los Blancos’ second half attacks to pick up a massive three-pointer at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
The team led by Paco Lopez will have a nice chance to keep their spell of scintillating form on Saturday evening when they host Leganes at Etadio Ciudad de Valencia.
It will be the second consecutive visit to Valencia for the Legionaries who were successful against the Bats last time out, holding them to a 1-1 draw at Estadio de Mestalla.
Mauricio Pellegrino’s side was even on the brink of snatching a huge victory there thanks to Gerard Gumbau’s penalty-kick goal, but Jose Gaya saved Valencia five minutes from time on the occasion.
Levante vs Leganes: Head-to-head
Levante have the opportunity to make it all square at 6 wins apiece in their H2H record with the Legionaries with a three-pointer here.
They were much more successful in the most recent head to head history between the two sides.
The Frogs won four and drew two of last six matches against Leganes, keeping a clean sheet in each of outings along the way.
Levante vs Leganes: Prediction
The visitors also grew in form of late after making a sloppy start to the new Primera Division campaign. They won two, drew one and lost one of four league games, a streak which started with an impressive victory over the reigning champions Barcelona at Butarque.
However, the visitors did struggle badly on travels so far in the season. They lost four in a row away from home before claiming a point from the last weekend’s trip to Mestalla. Pellegrino’s men will have a tough job to stay unbeaten here against an outfit which won three on the trot in the competition.
Since Leganes did not score at all in last six head to head matches against the Frogs, we have to try with the hosts to keep a clean sheet as an alternative betting option at the odds of 2.62.
