Leganes vs Alaves Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

After narrowly avoiding relegation last season, Leganes are keen on a positive start to the La Liga 2017-18 campaign. The club have made some key signings the form of Ezequiel Muñoz and Dimitrios Siovas. Manager Asier Garitano will be hoping that his consistent spell lends the team with some much needed base to build upon. The club have lost the last three friendly games. Deportivo Alaves suffered a major blow during the summer with Mauricio Pellegrino’s exit. Luis Zubeldía has been appointed in his place. The 36-year-old lacks experience and the pre-season has been a major struggle for the club. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Deportivo Alaves and Leganes were involved in a friendly recently, and both teams could not be separated after a 1-1 draw. There have been three draws in the last five competitive meetings between the two clubs. Alaves come into the match with a decent away record from last season, but the multiple changes to the playing and coaching staff will have its say. Leganes picked up five wins at home last season, but the club may not have enough attacking power to get a win. I go with a draw. Alaves have scored in four of the last five away games against Leganes. Despite concerns about the lack of positive results, the club failed to score just once in the last five pre-season friendlies. I see excellent value in placing money on both teams to score.

Leganes Preview

Leganes were able to avoid relegation only in the last few weeks of the season. The club were able to pick up some crucial victories during the period, and it helped them finish a couple of points above Sporting Gijon in the 18th place. Leganes were the second lowest scorers in the division after netting just 36 goals in the 38 league matches. This will once again be a topic of concern in the new 2017-18 season, as the club have not significantly strengthened the forward line up. Alexander Szymanowski was the top scorer for Leganes in the 2016-17 game. He came up with eight goals in 28 appearances.

Leganes Team News

Leganes will be without Serantes (cruciate ligament) and Dimitris Siovas (thigh) due to injury.

Alaves Preview

Deportivo Alaves were one of the surprise teams of last season after managing a ninth place finish, despite having just come from the second division. The second season in the top flight will be much more difficult for Alaves, especially after having lost Pellegrino. Furthermore, the club also has to contend with the departure of Edgar Mendez, a player who had contributed eight goals and finished as the club’s top scorer last season. Alaves have brought in new players but the lack of experience is becoming apparent. The club had a difficult pre-season and have been unable to win the last five friendly games.

Alaves Team News

Einar Galilea (cruciate ligament) is close to recovery and remains doubtful for the game. Victor Laguardia (cruciate ligament) is unavailable for the match due to injury.
