Leganes vs Malaga Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Leganes were at the end of a 4-0 thrashing from Atletico Madrid in the midweek action. Antoine Griezmann was the star of the show as he came up with a brace in either half to provide a huge win for Diego Simeone’s team. Leganes’ best chance of the game fell to Gerard Gumbau, as his long-range effort thundered off the woodwork. Malaga lost for a fifth consecutive game, as Sevilla picked up a 1-0 win at the La Rosaleda. The decisive goal of the game came in the 15th minute when Joaquin Correa scored past goalkeeper Roberto Jimenez.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Home advantage is the crucial element in this game, and Asier Garitano’s men will certainly target three points in order to end any talk about relegation. They can capitalise on Malaga’s winless run that stretches more than three months. Leganes may have suffered a heavy defeat in the midweek, but their form at the Municipal de Butarque is quite decent with just two losses in the last five. I would go with a win for Leganes.

Even the Leganes have conceded at close to 2 goals per game in the last six league matches, Malaga may not be in a position to capitalise on this poor form. Furthermore, Leganes’ defensive form does not look too bad when it exclusively comes to games at home. I would choose a surprise clean sheet for Leganes.

Leganes win – 23/20

Leganes clean sheet – 11/10

Leganes Preview

Leganes have just dropped to their lowest point of the 2017-18 La Liga campaign, as the club now occupy the 16th place in the table coming into the weekend fixtures. After having been in the top six for the first half of the campaign, the slide for Leganes has been steady and consistent. The heavy loss against Atletico Madrid causes a lot of concern among Asier Garitano’s men, even if they are 10 points ahead of the bottom three. Las Palmas have been able to be quite consistent in their points return over the last few weeks, and they would be seen as the major problem for Leganes. Earlier in the campaign, Leganes were riding on a strong defence of form but the team has now conceded 11 goals in the last six. Gabriel Pires is still the club’s top scorer with five league goals.

 

Leganes Team News

Darko Brasanac (shoulder) and Serantes (shoulder) remain on the treatment table, while Claudio Beauvue (heel) looks doubtful.

 

Malaga Preview

Malaga will already be preparing for life in the second division of Spanish football, as the club have been losing games without a fight in recent weeks. Even though Malaga were certainly in for a tough run as a result of facing opponents like Atletico Madrid, Valencia, and Sevilla in the last five games, but the winless run has extended even further to 11 games. After having been without a win for the last three months, it looks highly unlikely that Malaga will pick up seven points just to get in touch with Levante in the 17th place.

 

Malaga Team News

Manager José Manuel Gonzalez will be without Adalberto Penaranda (hamstring), Recio (knee), Adrian Gonzalez (knee), and Juan Carlos (cruciate ligament) due to injuries.
