Sevilla are breathing down both Barcelona and Real Madrid’s neck for the top spot, and are just one point shy of being level with the duo. With Leganes branded as the weakest side in the cluster, expect Sevilla not to drop points this week.

Sevilla vs Leganes Prediction
Sevilla are in fine form at the moment and have been picking up back to back wins in their last two matchups in the top flight. Their previous clash on the road saw them edge past Real Vallodolid, with Ever Banega scoring the only goal of the game.
Prior to that fixture, the hosts secured all three points against Betis with a narrow 2-1 scorecard. It is also worth noting that Sevilla are currently unbeaten in their past six La Liga matchups, and have garnered fourteen points from a possible eighteen.
On the other hand, Leganes are sporting a dismal winless streak at the moment and will be making the trip to Sevilla this week on the back of 2-1 defeat at the hands of Barcelona. Despite being a goal up at the break, in that latter matchup, the visitors failed to keep the Catalans at bay, post the restart, and succumbed to goals from Luiz Suarez and Arturo Vidal.
With no more than one measly win to their name, Leganes have already slumped to the bottom of the cluster. To pile on even more misery, the visitors are yet to have a taste of success on the road this season.
In contrast, the hosts have stumbled just once on home soil so far. As such, the bragging rights are more than likely to swing in favor of Sevilla in this one.
Furthermore, Julen Lopetegui’s men have not been racking up the goal-scoring charts at home. They have also been particular in thwarting their foes from doing the same as well. Five of their last six matchups here have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecards.
Taking into account that Leganes have found the back of the net just twice in their previous five outings on the trot, count on Sevilla to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most.
