Leganes vs Levante Preview

These are worrying times for Leganes who find themselves at the bottom of La Liga as the only side yet to record a victory in the 2019/20 season. This in theory is a good chance for them to break their duck. They take on a Levante side who are in mid-table but head into this game having failed to win any of their last 4 games.

Leganes were narrow victors in this fixture last season and they desperately need to rediscover that knack they used to have for winning tight games at Butarque. They couldn’t force a winner in a 1-1 draw with Athletic in their most recent home game and they followed that up with a narrow defeat at Granada. They are already 12 points behind the newly promoted side, who are one of the teams they’d certainly have backed themselves to finish above this term.

Levante are another who they will see as on their level or thereabouts. Paco Lopez’s side come into this one following a 1-1 draw with Osasuna. That was their 8th home point of the season but they are yet to avoid defeat on their travels. They went close to staging a dramatic comeback at the Bernabeu a few weeks back but they return to the Spanish capital this weekend having lost 6 of their last 7 road games in the Spanish top flight.

The hosts are still missing keeper Ivan Cuellar which is perhaps adding to a bit of uncertainty at the back that wasn’t there last term. Unai Bustinza is also suffering from a knock but is expected to start. Levante travel without Hernani who saw red last time out following two bookings.

Leganes vs Levante Predictions

Score Prediction: 1-0 Leganes

It’s tough to call but Levante’s poor away record is becoming a bit of a concern. They are better when they have space to run into which is unlikely to be the case here against a Leganes side that is happy to defend deep. Lega have been a bit more like their old selves in the past few weeks, with respectable draws against Athletic and Valencia and they may just nick this.
