Real Valladolid hosts Leganes

Real Valladolid hosts Leganes at the Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla in the first game of 2020 in the Spanish La Liga. This is a match from the 19th round of the league. Here are our La Liga predictions for it.

Real Valladolid begin 2020 from 14th place in the Spanish league. The Ronaldo owned club is having a record of 4 wins, 8 draws and 6 losses since the start of the campaign. At this moment Valladolid are 6 points ahead of the 18th Celta Vigo and the danger zone, so surely they would like to increase this gap and feel more secure for their future in the league.

Real Valladolid are without a win in their last five games in La Liga. In the previous round Sergio’s team hosted Valencia at home and enjoyed a point after a 1-1 draw. Valladolid were actually really close to winning this game, because Sergi Guardiola put them ahead in the 83th minute. The hosts were already seeing themselves as winners, but in the 94th minute Manu Vallejo scored for Los Che and saved the point for the visitors.

Leganes on the other hand are in the relegation zone of La Liga, being 19th with just 13 points won. In 18 games played in league so far, Leganes have won just 3. But here’s the catch – they won two of these three wins in their last three games. This must be a red lamp for their next opponent.

In the previous round Leganes hosted Espanyol at the Butarque and achieved an important 2-0 win. Martin Braithwaite opened the score for Leganes, while Youssef En-Nesyri doubled the home team’s lead.

These are our La Liga predictions for the match between Real Valladolid and Leganes on Friday. Which one of these two teams will start the new year in a high mood?
