Leganes hosts Levante
Leganes hosts Levante at the Estadio de Butarque in a game from the 8th round of La Liga. Let’s see what’s the situation with these two teams during our regular La Liga predictions.
Leganes are in a really complicated situation at the moment, because right now they are at the last place in the standings with only two points won so far. Leganes are still without a win since the start of the new season. They have two draws and five losses in the matches played so far. The club’s board is still sticking with the manager Mauricio Pellegrino, but it might be a question of time before the Argentine coach sees the door.
Last week Leganes visited the newcomers Granada and conceded only one goal, but it was completely enough for Granada to take the win. Antonio Puertas scored the only goal in the game, executing an assist provided by the former Spanish international Roberto Soldado.
After the break Pellegrino made some changes, but the inclusion of Jose Arnaiz and Guido Carrillo didn’t lead to anything.
Levante are doing better than their next opponents. At this moment they are 12th in the standings with 8 points achieved so far. But we shall say that right now Levante are in a run of four consecutive games without a win. Can they change this against Leganes on Saturday?
Last week Levante hosted the newcomer Osasuna at home, but only took a point with a 1-1 win. Hernani opened the score for the hosts after just four minutes of play, but Ruben Garcia equalised for the club from Pamplona.
Twenty minutes before the end the goalscorer for Levante Hernani was sent off, so he won’t be avaliable for the visit to Leganes
That’s our La Liga predictions for the clash between Leganes and Levante. The hosts are in a really tough situation, but could it be the time for their first win for the season? Let’s see.
