Villarreal vs Leganes
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 21 April 2019
Kick-Off 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villarreal).
Villarreal escaped the red zone thanks to a huge 0-1 victory over Girona last weekend away at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi. Nigerian forward Samuel Chukwueze made no mistake from the one-on-one situation with Girona’s keeper to make the difference for the Yellow Submarine who are now two points way from the danger area.
Javi Calleja’s men will be looking to build on this win on Sunday afternoon when they play host to Leganes in another important league affair at Estadio de la Ceramica. Nevertheless, it should be quite serious challenge for the home team knowing the Legionaries come into the clash unbeaten in past four league outings.
Leganes shipped just two goals during the four-game undefeated streak. They held the likes of Real Madrid to a 1-1 draw on Monday evening at Estadio Municipal de Butarque.
Villarreal vs Leganes: Head-to-head
Villarreal never had problems in home matches against the Legionaries.
The Yellow Submarine won five and drew one of six home outings against Leganes.
Villarreal also won each of past three clashes with the Legionaries, including this season’s 0-1 victory at Estadio Municipal de Butarque.
Villarreal vs Leganes: Prediction
Visitors practically secured survival in the elite class thanks to a thread of two wins and two draws in last four rounds. This match will thus have a much bigger importance for Villarreal who are still just two points above the red zone line.
The Yellow Submarine shipped seven goals in last two home outings to Barcelona and Valencia (in Europa League). They kept their net untouched last weekend away at Girona and should be in position to do the same here in front of their fans against defensive-minded Leganes.
The Legionaries failed to find the net in two of last four away ties in the league. They were not on the scoreline in H2H clash against Villarreal in the first half of the season either. We fancy the home win to nil as the main betting suggestion here.
Villarreal vs Leganes: Bet Tips
