Leganés Espanyol betting prediction


Preview
Leganés and Espanyol meet at Estadio Municipal de Butarque, in a match for the 21th round of the Primera División. Leganés got an away win by (0‑1), in the last league head‑to‑head, played in 27‑08‑2017. In 3 head‑to‑heads in the last 3 years, the away team won 2 and lost 1. Espanyol registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

Analysis of Leganés

The home team is currently in the 13th position of the league, with 25 points won, after 7 wins, 4 draws and 8 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Real Betis, by (3‑2). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Deportivo Alavés, by (2‑2). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses at their stadium. In their last match, for the Copa del Rey, they got an away win against Real Madrid by (1‑2). In the last 8 home league matches Leganés has a record of 4 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 14 points out of 24 possible. In their home matches there are a few frequent results: at half‑time 0‑0 (5 out of 8 matches) and after the 90' 1‑0 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches for this competition there is a tendency for few goals, since 5 of the last 8 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 19 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 10 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Leganés have not made a good campaign in this edition of the Spanish League, and they are not in a good moment, since they have only one victory in the last five rounds, and there are already two games without a win. In their last match, the team played a very balanced game against Alavés, and managed to reach equality after having seen the opponent be winning by (2-0). Based on the numbers of the competition, it is possible to notice that the offensive sector has been the big problem of the team until then, since it is among the six worst, having not scored goals in eight occasions. In contrast, the defense has been working satisfactorily, being the fourth less leaked of the championship. The 4-4-1-1 or 4-2-3-1 should be the tactical formation used in that duel, with highlight for Brazilian Gabriel Pires in the midfield.

Confirmed Lineup: Pichu Cuéllar, Zaldúa, Raúl García, Bustinza, M. Mantovani, Gumbau, Omar Ramos, D. Brašanac, Gabriel, Guerrero, José Naranjo.

Analysis of Espanyol

The away team is currently in the 14th position of the league, with 24 points won, after 6 wins, 6 draws and 8 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against Athletic Club, by (1‑1). In the last match, they lost in a home match against Sevilla, by (0‑3). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 7 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 9 goals scored and 20 conceded; against 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 22 goals scored and 14 conceded. In their last match, for the Copa del Rey, they got an away loss against Barcelona by (2‑0). Their last away match for this competition ended in a win by (0‑1) against Málaga. In the last 9 away league matches Espanyol has a record of 1 win, 4 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 7 points out of 27 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 6 of the last 9 matches for this competition have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 20 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 9 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 13 away matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (0'‑15') and 3 of their 8 goals between (31'‑45').

Espanyol return to play away from home for the Spanish Championship after two consecutive home appearances, shortly after having seen interrupted their undefeated record, which lasted four rounds. At the time, the team had even more possession, but left much to be desired in offensive and defensive terms, and then was defeated at home Sevilla. As was evident in this confrontation, the team has been characterized by a very inefficient offensive sector, which is now among the five worst of the competition, being the one that least completes. Playing away from home, the team owns the fifth worst campaign, and in that condition scored only six goals. It is likely that the coach will set up the team in 4-4-2, with some changes among the initial eleven.

Confirmed Lineup: Diego López, Marc Navarro, Aarón Martín, David López, Ó. Duarte, Hermoso, Víctor Sánchez, Granero, Gerard Moreno, Léo Baptistão, Sergio García.

Betting suggestion:

This duel tends to be one of the most balanced of this round of the Spanish Championship, as it puts in the field two teams that have not been doing good campaigns, and are separated by just one point at the bottom of the table. The home team have a hard time maintaining ball possession and have been ineffective in completing, but their defense stands out in the aerial game and tackles. Espanyol is also struggling to retain possession and finalizations, while their defense shows weakness in fighting more skillful players, counterattack containment and defensive set pieces. Thus, as we will have two teams in the field that are having difficulties in the offensive sector, it is a good option to bet on a game of few goals. This betting suggestion has expired...
