Real Valladolid vs Leganes Prediction

Valladolid missed out on a confidence-boosting win the last match-day. They were at home, and had been leading 1-0 against Valencia, only for the guests to equalize in the 90+4th minute.

Meanwhile, Leganes made full use of their home status, and the match-up against the 20th placed Espanyol, as they recorded a 2-0 win the prior game week.

As things stand, home advantage will play a big role in determining the outcome of the game this Friday. Valladolid have lost just once this whole season, and it had come against Sevilla, who’s currently placed third in the table.

Also, going back till April of this year, Valladolid have lost just twice in front of their home crowd – once against Sevilla, and another time against Valencia,

On the other hand, Leganes have won just thrice this whole season in all competitions. One of those wins had come against the newly promoted Mallorca, and one at home, against the 20th placed Espanyol.

Importantly, on the road, Leganes have not won even once this whole season. They have also scored the least number of goals away from home of all the teams in contention in the La Liga.

As such, it’s deduced that Valladolid have a very high probability to avoid the loss at home.

However, when we check the h2h history of these two teams, we can see that Leganes have heavily dominated these clashes. They are on five-game winning run against Valladolid in official meetings, and the last loss Leganes experienced in such a fixture had come in 2015. It also is their sole loss this decade against this rival.

Consequentially, despite the upper hand of Valladolid, their huge inferiority in h2h clashes rule out a clean sheet for the team this Friday.
