Our Prediction:

Valencia will win

Valencia – Leganes Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 10:00

Leganes will be aiming to use any discontent to their advantage but they head to the Mestalla as the only team in the division yet to pick up a point. All eyes will be on the Mestalla on Sunday with some form of demonstration against the clubs ownership at least possible following the clubs sacking of Marcelino. It has been a very busy week at Valencia, starting with a meeting in Singapore and culminating in a victory in London that may just ease some of the anger on the terraces here.

Los Pepineros sit bottom of the table after losing all four of their matches thus far the latest of those defeats being a 0-3 home trouncing at the hands of Villarreal last Saturday. Lega have failed to score in three of those games after drawing blanks at home to Osasuna (0-1) and Atletico Madrid (0-1) in the first two weeks of the season, with their only goal scored to date coming against Real Betis (2-1) at Benito Villamarin before the international break.

Our prediction for this Primera Division match:

The direct style of play with a lot of counter-attacks. When I crafted my selection for this game I was paying attention to both teams recent forms and styles of play. In this game, we will be seeing two teams who like to play a similar brand of football. My opinion is that we will see both teams very determined to prove themselves here. I expect Valencia to win this game and get their season going in the right direction.

They have some injuries, but they are not long term. They are currently last in the league and are desperate to earn some points here. Leganess team is slightly changed from the last year, but their goal stays the same. That is, of course, to avoid being relegated. Leganes has lost all 4 games they played. Their coach Pellegrino has around 15-17 players who can play in starting 11 most of the time. Before this season opener, where Osasuna won against them, they have had a 7 game streak, where they did not lose a game.

You should bear in mind that Leganes are after their first ever win over Valencia in La Liga. The capital club made a very slow start to the season and we are positive that they are going to return to the suburbs of Madrid empty-handed. failed to impress in the defeat to the title holders at Camp Nou, but they are definitely capable of beating the rock-bottom side at their Estadio de Mestalla.

Goal Margins

That would put them in a real position of comfort as we head towards the end of the campaign. This Sundays game sees Valencia looking to extend a decent recent run of results in La Liga. They travel to Butarque to take on Leganes, who would actually move level on points with Los Che were they to win the game.

Valencia vs Leganes Match Preview & Prediction

That was a minor concern at one stage when they could barely get anything going earlier in the campaign. Valencia no longer have anything to worry about in terms of their survival in this league. They saw off Celtic in Europe with minimal fuss and are currently fighting in two cup competitions, while they are also back in with an outside shot of a top four finish in La Liga. However they have gradually eased their way back towards form and suddenly things are looking a lot brighter.

They did add a number of players late in the window and while several of those were at the club last term, it may have taken many of them a bit of time to build up to full match sharpness. As for Leganes, Mauricio Pellegrino will be starting to be a little concerned after another game slipped by without even a point last weekend as they were beaten 3-0 at home by Villarreal. On paper, this is the strongest squad the club has ever assembled but its not really clicked yet for one reason or another.

Leganes will inevitably be low on confidence and having lost their last 6 league matches overall, its hard to see them getting a result. Valencia could easily have buckled under the stresses and strains of a difficult week on and off the pitch in West London in midweek but they showed their character and that same attitude will serve them well here.

Leganes vs Valencia Stats

They are always tough to play against at Butarque though and are unbeaten in 11 matches at home heading into this one. Mauricio Pellegrino is doing a pretty good job with the Madrid club, although they do come into this one following a rare off day, a 3-0 defeat at Real Sociedad last time out. They are a team that knows their limitations but it increasingly looks like they will be playing in the Primera Division for the 4th consecutive season next term.

The capital club made a very slow start to the season and we are positive that they are going to return to the suburbs of Madrid empty-handed. failed to impress in the defeat to the title holders at Camp Nou, but they are definitely capable of beating the rock-bottom side at their Estadio de Mestalla.
