Malaga vs Leganes
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 15th October 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio la Rosaleda.
The newly promoted Leganes side will have a nice chance to keep the dream alive and back up a phenomenal kick off to the season in the elite class with a victory over the rock-bottomed Malaga squad.
The match is set to be played on Sunday evening at Estadio la Rosaleda where Boquerones will be looking to snatch their first win of the campaign.
The Spanish expert Michel might be counting his last days at La Rosaleda in case of any other scenario but a victory over Leganes on Sunday.
Malaga are still the only team without a victory in the entire competition after seven rounds.
The main reason lies in a poor defensive line which allowed eight goals in two matches with Valencia and Athletic Bilbao.
However, the previous round’s display against Sevilla at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan can be encouraging as Los Rojiblancos broke the deadlock not before late in the second half when they were awarded with the penalty.
The story is completely opposite with Los Legionarios who have the second best defense in the league.
Believe it or not, the recently-promoted side has only allowed three goals in openings even fixtures of the campaign in the top flight.
This includes a phenomenal run of four consecutive fixtures with the clean sheet kept.
Malaga vs Leganes: Head to head
Interestingly, Leganes have not managed to find the back of the net in each of their four previous meetings with Malaga.
Boquerones have been much more successful historically winning three of four clashes with Los Legionarios.
Malaga vs Leganes: Prediction
Leganes will have a nice chance to end the negative head to head trend, but the Under 2.5 goals FT pops out as by far the best of the betting options, set at the odds of 8/15 here.
