Villarreal vs Leganes Match preview
It has been a hard time for the Villarreal players as four of their recent five fixtures in the schedule were on the road. Excessive traveling will have an effect on the home team’s dugout.
However, they will be glad to return home after the 1-0 defeat on the road against Athletic Bilbao in their previous encounter in the campaign.
Despite conceding goals at home, Javier Calleja and boys have won in the last two home matches against Osasuna (3-1) and Levante (2-1).
Leganes has been winless in their last four matches following a 1-1 draw at home with Alaves in their previous league clash.
It has to be noted that their recent two losses have come in the games away from home, against Levante (2-0) and Celta Vigo (1-0).
Having only a slight chance to get out of the relegation this season, Leganes is unlikely to hinder the host in their quest at this venue.
Villarreal vs Leganes Prediction
Villarreal has bagged the bragging rights in the last five h2h meetings with Leganes. This will increase the morale of the players in the home team’s dugout.
Besides, the host has lost only two of their 12 home matches so far in the campaign. Only one of their recent five home matches has resulted in a defeat.
In sharp contrast, Leganes is one of the two sides other than Mallorca to have not yet registered a win away from home in the league this season.
Out of the 12 away fixtures, 5 matches have ended in a draw as a consolation for Los Pepineros. With their last two outings failing to succeed, the odds will be against the visitors in the clash.
The betting tip for the home win at 1.75 will be the most probable bet in the match. Furthermore, four of their recent five meetings had over 2.5 goals in ninety minutes.
Hence, the tips for over 2.5 goals at 2.00 odds can be considered for the clash at Villarreal.
