Leganes vs Villarreal Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Leganes are coming on the back of a 1-0 loss against Celta de Vigo in the latest La Liga 2017-18 game. In a game with very little to separate the two teams, the home outfit took advantage of a 27th minute penalty and converted the same through Iago Aspas. Leganes, though, progressed into the next round of the Copa del Rey after beating Real Valladolid 3-1 on aggregate. Villarreal suffered a first home defeat of the season after losing 3-2 against Sevilla. The away team made an impressive comeback to cancel out goals from Cedric Bakambu and Carlos Bacca. Sevilla scored all of their goals in the second half through Clement Lenglet, Franco Vazquez, and a penalty from Ever Banega. Villarreal beat Ponferradina 3-0 in the Copa del Rey to reach the next round.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Leganes are without a victory in the two games against Villarreal. At home, the team has suffered two losses in the last five league games. Villarreal come into the game with only one win in the last four on the road. Their last two away games may have ended with draws against Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao, but Leganes are an opponent who can be beaten with Villarreal’s strength. I would go with a victory for Villarreal. The game has the right conditions for a low scoring match. After conceding three against Sevilla, Villarreal may be focusing more on the defence. Leganes have scored only twice in the last three home matches. This game is expected to witness less than 2.5 goals in total.

Leganes Preview

Leganes are going down the table like a pack of cards over the last few weeks. Even though the club may be 11th in the table coming into this match, but a string of four consecutive losses has left them with renewed threat of relegation. Leganes are only five points ahead of Deportivo La Coruna with the season only 13 games old. The club has now suffered twice the number of defeats over the last four matches than they did in the first nine. Claudio Beauvue, Alexander Szymanowski, and Gabriel Pires have all scored two goals each at Leganes.

Leganes Team News

Serantes (shoulder), Ruben Perez (gastrointestinal discomfort), Martin Mantovani (calf), Darko Brasanac (muscle), and Dimitris Siovas (leg) are unavailable for Leganes manager Asier Garitano.

Villarreal Preview

Villarreal largely built their season on home form, but the shock loss against Sevilla puts the club at a major disadvantage in terms of the Champions League race. The Yellow Submarines are now six points behind fourth-placed Real Madrid. Home form has become especially crucial since Villarreal have only picked up two victories in the last seven away games. Keeping Cedric Bakambu fit between now and end of the season will be the key for the Villarreal, as the 26-year-old leads the scoring charts at the club with nine – only three fewer than Lionel Messi.

Villarreal Team News

Villarreal manager Javier Calleja will be without Ruben Semedo (thigh), Leonardo Suarez (cruciate ligament), Denis Cheryshev (ankle), Andres Fernandez (cruciate ligament), Nicola Sansone (calf), Daniele Bonera (back), and Samuel Castillejo (thigh) due to injury.
