Osasuna vs Leganes
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Saturday, 27 June 2020
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Estadio El Sadar.
Los Rojillos have been on an impressive run (for their standards) in the Spanish top flight, ever since being promoted from the Segunda the last season. As of now, they have a nine-point buffer over the relegation cut-off, and with just a handful of games remaining, they appear to be safe.
However, the Cucumber Growers have been a total disaster in the 2019-20 season. Not only are they placed in the 19th spot at the moment, but they have scored the least number of goals so far, and have a total of five wins from their thirty one fixtures as well.
Moreover, Los Rojillos had won the reverse fixture, and they have a great h2h record in the recent such clashes too. Considering these factors, it’s assumed that Osasuna are on course to deliver the better performance this weekend.
Osasuna vs Leganes: Head-to-head (h2h)

Osasuna vs Leganes: Prediction
Los Rojillos lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Valencia. The hosts were in such a hurry to post the three points, that they were leading by two goals even before the 40th minute, and note that one of their goals were disallowed by the VAR.
In the meantime, the Cucumber Growers were held to a goalless draw at home by Granada the past game week. It must have hurt the hosts they missed a penalty in the 65th minute, in what was essentially a must-win game.
At present, Los Rojillos seem to be the better team. They have delivered good performances throughout the season, and as a result, they are not much scared about making the cut above the relegation line in this final phase of the season.
On the other hand, their counterparts are right in the middle of the relegation dogfight, and they will have to play flawlessly in order to avoid getting the boot.
On top of that, Los Rojillos had won the reverse fixture, and they are on a two-game winning run against this opponent. They are also unbeaten against this rival in the past four years, and at this venue, it’s been twenty years since the Cucumber Growers have posted a victory.
In addition, Los Rojillos had also won five of the preceding six h2h encounters at this stadium, and their opposite number were winless in eight of their prior nine overall match-ups this season, as well as remained winless in 17 of their preceding 20 games on the road.
Considering these stats, it’s assumed that Osasuna are on course to deliver a win this Saturday.
